Architects, builders, manufacturers, and the general public appreciate the superior aesthetic qualities of coil-coated metals. Although the cost and environmental attributes are undeniable, the outstanding appearance, consistency, and durability of this popular building material are largely fueling its popularity.

Architectural panels and building materials are inspiring awe by the amazing versatility and design freedom of coil-coated metals, which are not possible with other coating systems. The sky is the limit, such as the ability to achieve the look of brushed copper, stainless steel, wood grains, and even color-changing pigments. Pre-painted metals can also be printed, embossed, or striped for special visual effects.

The manufacturing process enables impeccable quality and consistency, boosting project durability. Large coils of metal are unwound, cleaned, coated, and oven-cured in an automated process, reducing manufacturing costs, imperfections, and associated environmental impacts. The metal is then rewound for shipping, resulting in superior-quality finished products that are not otherwise possible with other coating systems.

There are nearly limitless coating options available from Valspar for pre-coated metals. Our coatings excel in abrasion resistance, weathering performance, durability, and hardness—keeping projects vibrant and awe inspiring for many years to come.
