Prepainted vs. postpainted

Benefits of prepainted metal over postpainted

 Using prepainted metal saves money across the board and makes the manufacturing operation run smoother.  Productivity and yield are improved, while manufacturing, energy, inventory and financial costs are reduced.

Prepainted metal reduces or even eliminates the major bottleneck in a finishing operation - the paint lines. Capacity constraints are minimised, potentially improving ROCE.

The cost of complying with environmental regulations is significantly reduced, or even eliminated.  The cost of the disposal of hazardous waste associated with the painting operation is eliminated.

Scheduling problems and the costs associated with batch-type processing are minimised or removed altogether.  Since input material is more directly related to output, the processing time is reduced and wqith it, stocks are minimised.

The consistent quality of coil coated materials reduces the need for re-work and lowers non-conformance levels and associated costs.  Above all, using prepainted metal allows the manufacturer to concentrate on their core competencies and leave the production of high-quality paint finishes to the experts.
