Prefinished Berridge products are fabricated from either pretreated G-90 galvanized steel or pretreated Galvalume® steel coils. All coatings are applied at the factory on the Berridge Continuous Coil Coating Line which pretreats the metal, applies primer coat, finish coat, a Parchment backer to the reverse side and a strippable plastic film coating. The strippable plastic film is applied to the painted surface for protection during fabrication and shipment and must be removed before field installation.NATURAL FINISHES - SATIN FINISH GALVALUME®
Satin Finish Galvalume® is standard unfinished metal coil from steel mills that is pretreated on the Berridge Continuous Coil Coating Line to remove mill oils, chemicals and residue, which provides final uniformity of appearance. In the process, the coil is coated on the back side with a Parchment backer to inhibit corrosion and the top side receives a clear plastic strippable film that must be removed before installation of the product. The clean surface, which has a new appearance characterized by a small, flat spangle, is now allowed to weather and darken quickly and more evenly because all mill treatment has been removed from the metal surface. The Satin Finish Galvalume® coating of aluminum and zinc offers the inert protection of aluminum and the galvanic protection of zinc and, therefore, has the best longevity and weatherability.
