The prepainted steel sheet in coil is a product obtained by subjecting a hot-dipped galvanized steel sheet, an galvalume steel sheet, or an aluminum sheet to a surface chemical treatment (coating) , followed by baking and curing.

  • The total thickness of the pre-panted galvanized steel coil is composed of the base steel – coating -primer – top paint – protective layer thickness. The top paint thickness is 10-25μm, and the back paint thickness is 5-20μm. The thinner the base steel thickness, the higher the price of the ppgi steel coil, because the processing cost becomes higher.
  • Usually the paint coating material is polyester (PE) and the color of the back paint is white grey. The color can be customized according to the RAL color card or customer samples. Special patterns can be made, such as wood grain, flower print, camouflage, brick.

1) PPGI also known as prepainted galvanized steel coil and color coated steel coil, with a hot dip zinc coated steel sheet substrate.

2) PPGL also known as prepainted galvalume steel coil, with a galvalume steel sheet as a substrate.

PPGI Steel Sheet Production Video


The decoiler machine unwinding, leveling, fixed length, cut the prepainted galvanized steel coil into a flat PPGI sheet of the required length and width and is processed into a PPGI&PPGL roofing sheet of various styles by a roll forming machine, such as corrugated steel sheet, wave tile, roman longtile profile.

Pre-painted Steel Products



The matt PPGI has big wrinkle PPGI and small wrinkle PPGI. The paint coating thickness is 20μm-45μm, which is used for roofing sheet which is not easy to discolor and has a longer service life.

Pre-painted Steel Sheet in Coil Production Line

The manufacturing of double-coated, double-baked pre-coated steel sheets with good weather resistance, primarily used in construction.

PPGI Coil Production Process Flow Chart

Unrolling → Stitching machine → Entrance loop → Pretreatment → Initial coating → Bake → Cool down → Fine coating → Bake → Embossed film → Export loop → Inspection station → Cut → Coiling

In the above process, if the cleaning degreasing process is not handled well, the adhesion of the primer of the color coated plate to the galvanized sheet is not good, and it is easy to cause the top coat of the color coated steel coil to fall off during the press forming process.

PPGI & PPGL Sheet Coating Layer

  • Top (Finish) Coating (PE/HDP/PVDF, etc.)
  • Primer Coating
  • Pre Treatment (Chromate Coating)
  • Plating Layer (Zn, AL, 55%AL+Zn)
  • Base Metal (Cold Rolled Steel Sheet)
  • Plating Layer (Zn, AL, 55%AL+Zn, Sn, Cr etc.)
  • Pre Treatment (Chromate Coating)
  • Functional Painting (Epoxy, Polyester )

PPGI Quality Control

PPGI & PPGL steel quality control according to the following:

  • coating thickness test
  • color difference test
  • gloss test
  • T bend
  • tensile test
  • impact test

PPGI paint coating

Coating primerTop paint coatingService life(years)
1) Epoxy primer, good adhesion, water resistance, alkali resistance, chemical corrosion resistance, poor single toughness.
2) Polyester primer, good adhesion, good flexibility, sensitive to humid environment, chemical resistance is not as good as epoxy primer.
3) Acrylic primer, good adhesion, good toughness and high pretreatment requirements.
4) polyurethane primer, chemical resistance, abrasion resistance, durability, toughness

2) Silicon Modified Polyester (SMP)10-15
3) High weather resistant polyester (HDP)12-15
4) Polyvinyl fluoride (PVC)12-15
5) Polyvinylidene fluoride/fluorocarbon (PVDF) It has good formability and color retention, good outdoor durability and powder resistance, solvent resistance, limited color and high price.12-20


The reasons for the color difference of the PPGI&PPGL sheet
The color difference of the paint itself; The drying process; Paint coating thickness; Glossy of paint;

Why are the same specifications, the price of Chinese manufacturers different?
Different regions. Taking Ukrainian customers as an example, the specifications for purchasing color coated steel coils are 0.3*1250 mm, and the paint is 18μm(top paint)/5μm(back paint). Our price is 730 US dollars per ton. The price of a manufacturer in southern China is 715 US dollars per ton. Because of the time difference between the price adjustment of raw materials in southern China and northern China. Cost accounting differences. PPGI products have different prices due to raw materials, paint quality, stock availability and other reasons. Other manufacturers offer 13μm(top paint)/5μm(back paint) color coated coil prices to customers as 18μm(top paint)/5μm(back paint) PPGI&PPGL steel coil.
