Valspar Architectural Metal Coatings is now Sherwin-Williams Coil Coatings.

This course provides an overview of high-performance architectural metal coatings for exterior building products for curtain wall. There are two primary types of liquid coatings for these metal building products which are named by their coating method: Coil (pre-paint) and Extrusion (post-paint). Both options are applied in-factory and provide an extremely durable finish that retains its performance and aesthetics over time in exterior elements.

Learning Objectives

  • Explore the differences between coil and extrusion end-use applications, coating methods, and manufacturing processes.
  • Examine various coating components and their role in the coating system.
  • Identify industry standards relative to the performance requirements of coatings for metal building components.
  • Understand AAMA specifications for specifying the optimal coating for a metal building component or project.
