Volume 2, Issue 2 




Editor's Note

In our previous newsletters, we featured articles on colour change and how it is measured as well as how pigments in paint coatings affect the performance of pre-painted steel for metal roofing and the wall cladding industry. In this issue, we will discuss on the number pre-painted steel coating systems that are offered by downstream metal roof & wall cladding manufacturers.

I would like take this opportunity to announce that this issue will be the last for me as team leader & editor. However I will still be in the committee to contribute ideas. The e-newsletter committee have not decided as to who will take over my post however, we will announce this in our next issue.

With this, I would like to thank our readers for their kind comments and our e-newsletter committee members for their dedication and tireless support and I look forward to contributing ideas in the up and coming issues.

Thank you.  

Team leader & Editor

Did You Know..........?
There are many pre-painted steel coating systems offered by downstream metal roofing manufacturers but unfortunately many specifiers or end-users do not pay much attention to such detail. As an end-user or specifier, attention should be given to the pre-painted steel coating systems as this too will determine the long-term performance of your metal roof. The worldwide accepted coating system for metal roofing and wall cladding is known as a 2+2 coating system consisting of the following coatings:

Other systems offered in the market are as follows:

Diagram Coating System Quality Type Remarks


 High Performance
 Commercial Quality (low-end)

Worldwide accepted standard

2+1  Commercial Quality (low-end)  No bottom primer
1+1  Commercial Quality (low-end)  No top & bottom primer

Why are manufacturers offering 2+1 or 1+1 coating systems? Due to the competitive nature of the metal roofing and wall cladding business, a large number of low-end manufacturers are trying to reduce cost and one of the ways is to reduce primer coatings. The result is lower quality or commercial quality products where medium to long-term problems (i.e. corrosion) are eventually passed on to the end-user.

(Take note that not all 2+2 systems will give you the high performance you maybe looking for, such as colour retention and chalking, as this will depend on the quality of the paint formulation used for the top coat)    

Insist on a 2+2 coating system if quality is what you are looking for. COLOURCOIL high performance pre-painted steel are coated using 2+2 coating system and our paint coatings are manufactured using only high quality resins and lead-free inorganic/ceramic pigments.
