“How is pre-painted metal affecting the powder coating jobbers in your area? When was this material introduced to the market? “
“Prepainted materials offer high quality coverage at a low cost. However, they do not have the same properties of powder coating which can outlast prepainted stock. Additionally, tool life can be reduced with prepainted stock (abrasion and dulling of punches an dies).
Furthermore, the raw edges of prepainted stock after shearing can be a problem on some parts. Prepaint stock has not substantially affected the powder coating market to date and has been around for more than 20 years.”
