(27 Ga.) Metal and a superior Paint System to make it last longer.
Why Everlast Heat Forms? Cracks allow moisture, which is often contaminated by atmospheric pollutants, to penetrate the protective surface of the coating, and cause the substrate to rust or corrode. In fact, the fractures in the paint can cause a painted panel to corrode at a faster rate than an unpainted panel. At the point where the paint film has been opened, electrochemical cells are established which will promote greater and faster corrosive attack. The result is accelerated corrosion at these areas because of their tendency to remain wet longer.
The photos show how Everlast's Heat Formed™ panel outlasts the competitor's panel. The Heat Formed™ panel creates a paint system that is more flexible and therefore better able to withstand the rigors of the forming process. The paint coverage is not compromised and the result is an outstanding barrier protection. This barrier protection prevents corrosion by isolating the steel from the environment.
Heat formed™ hard paints provide a durable and quality finish. Other manufacturers form hard paints at room temperature which causes the paint to microscopically crack. It is at these cracks that the metal breaks down and deteriorates.
To prevent those cracks some manufacturers will use softer more pliable paints. However, soft, pliable paints can scratch very easily; during construction, debris from a storm, walking on it, leaning a ladder against it and even children playing against the metal can cause scratches.
Those scratches are harmful and can result in the breakdown and deterioration of the metal. Everlast's process of using hard paints and heat forming™ ensures a durable surface.
