Metal Architecture & Steelscape Partner to Host a Webinar
What Is 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, and performance, and 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 specific to project needs.
- Identify pre-painted metal durability issues, their causes and applicable warranty considerations for end building users.

Michelle Vondran is Technical Manager for NS BlueScope Coated Products, North America. Michelle graduated from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry. She started her career as a research chemist with Morton (later BASF) coil coatings with a focus on polymers. This position also included lab development as well as lab-to-production scale-up and manufacturing quality and process control.
Eventually, Michelle’s focus shifted to cool pigmentation where she brought the first cool coil coatings to market. She was active in the Cool Roof Rating Council and Energy Star Roofing Program. She joined Steelscape as a Quality Engineer for the Rancho Cucamonga, CA paint line. While there, she has held the Quality Systems Manager role and now, in her current position, as Technical Manager. She oversees quality systems and technical service for BlueScope Coated Products North America, which is comprised of Steelscape and ASC Profiles.
Michelle is an active member of the National Coil Coaters Association, sitting on the technical committee, as well as the Zinc Aluminum Coaters Association.
