More Coil Coating in Appliance Industry, NCCA Says
According to the National Coil Coating Association (NCCA; Cleveland), use of prepainted (coil coated) steel by appliance manufacturers is on the rise. The association says Whirlpool, Trane, General Electric and other appliance OEMs are trading postpainting operations for prepainted metal. NCCA cites the ability of coil- coated steel to meet fingerprint resistance, non-skid and anti- microbial specifications without the need for paint shop environmental controls as reasons for its increasing use.
