The coil coatings market is a $3.6 billion global business with great growth opportunities, thanks to increased construction spending, product innovation, and mounting interest in prepainted metal building products.

Valspar is the coil and extrusion coatings industry leader in North America and Latin America. We’re also a major player in the Asian and Middle East markets, with several very high-profile projects. Valspar's Fluropon coatings have been used on some stunning projects.  

The Tokyo Dome was completed in 1988 and has a total capacity of 46,000 for baseball and 70,000 for concerts. It has an air-supported structure that uses a flexible membrane that is suspended by slightly pressurizing the inside of the stadium. It is the world’s largest roofed stadium and the Dome’s metal components were coated with Valspar’s Fluropon coatings in White.

Taipei 101 is a landmark skyscraper in Taipei, Taiwan. It was officially classified as the world's tallest building from 2004 to 2009 and is an icon of Taiwan acknowledging both the past and future. It features Valspar’s Fluropon coatings in Eggshell White and Crystal.

The Beijing Capital Airport Terminal 3 was completed in 2007, just in time for the 2008 Olympics. It is estimated to have serviced 60 million passengers in 2015. It was designed to make a cultural statement with spirit and style. The curtain wall and skylight system in new terminal are sheathed in Valspar’s Fluropon coatings.

Valspar’s Fluropon coatings are popular due to their high durability, outstanding performance characteristics, and broad color palette. With a mere five colors commercially in 1965, the color options have expanded exponentially. There are now more than 20,000+ color offerings, including bright colors, micas, metallics, neutrals, and pearlescent coatings.

It is no wonder that Valspar's Fluropon coatings are selected for premier painted metal projects across the globe.
