Understanding Pre-Painted Metal
The surface coating is the first line of defense in pre-painted metal, and one of the most important elements to consider as part of a metal purchase. Selecting the right coating, finish, and paint system can affect product lifespan, energy efficiency, and aesthetic appeal. This course discusses the composition of pre-painted metal, its application, performance, and also examines the building and environmental factors that may influence the type of paint system specified.
- Understand pre-painted metal fundamentals, the paint application process and the advantages of this process relevant to exterior building applications.
- Identify the three common types of paint systems, their differences, and appropriate applications.
- Recognize the enhancement options available for pre-painted metal and how they can be modified specifically to project needs.
- Identify pre-painted metal durability issues, their causes and applicable warranty considerations for end building users.
