Benefits of pre-finished metal

Pre-finished metal can provide many benefits over post painted metals.

 

Pre-finished metals offer design flexibility and value in use, combining the strength and longevity of the metal substrate with the aesthetics and functionality of the coating. Firsteel takes sheet metal substrates in coil form and applies a paint or film finish in a continuous process.
