The article focuses on the opportunity for the prepaint industry to grow through its ecological and economical techniques used in the paint manufacturing in the U.S. The process of coil coating has been viewed to be more efficient and more environmental friendly because harmful air emissions produced in the coatings of steel and aluminum sheet are captured. Moreover, innovations on paint chemistries can reduce airconditioning bills due to the ability of the paint to reduce heat from the sun.
