What is Pre-Painted, or Coated, Steel?
Pre-painted steel, or coated steel, is steel that has had paint applied to one or both sides via a continuous coil coating process to produce uniformity in the paint finish. The steel can be coated with different substances:
- Adhesives: used mainly in automotive transmission gaskets
- Polymer Coatings: locomotive engine valve covers
The coating thickness is closely monitored on both top and bottom surfaces of the steel. We coat the coils based on our customer’s paint spec. As a pre-painted steel coil supplier, you can come to us with the paint and vendor spec you need and we’ll take it from there.
Advantages of Pre-Painted & Coated Steel Coil
There are specific qualities of pre-painted & coated steel that make it particularly appealing to customers. First, Chesterfield’s services eliminate the need for you to perform in-house painting, saving you money on equipment maintenance costs, yield loss, and more. Second, it is cheaper to paint by the foot rather than by the part. Additionally, many parts are too big to be painted after they are made.
Other advantages of pre-painted steel coil include:
- Corrosion resistance
- Cosmetically appealing
- Strength of the steel combined with the corrosion resistance of the metallic coating combined with its aesthetic appeal
- Very customizable in terms of color, coating thickness, paint vendor, etc.
- Increase yield in roll formed applications due to time saved painting after forming
