Setting The Standard
While Sherwin-Williams offers unlimited colors, green is our favorite. As one of the leading manufacturers of coating products in the world, Sherwin-Williams sets an example for the entire industry — a responsibility we take seriously.
Using quality materials has been part of our coatings culture and innovation for more than 150 years. Today those same values remain at the center of everything we do. Sherwin-Williams Coil Coatings believes in the importance of good stewardship of our planet. We are leading the way creating sustainable products and manufacturing processes to ensure a better, cleaner tomorrow. Here are just a few ways in which we make a difference:
- Decreasing energy consumption
- Using biorenewable and recycled materials
- Increasing durability
By partnering with Sherwin-Williams Coil Coatings, you can achieve green and sustainable status – and can do so without sacrificing performance.
When you design with sustainability in mind, it is crucial to use products and suppliers that offer you the resources and solutions to help you meet your goals. At Sherwin-Williams Coil Coatings, we exceed expectations by working directly with our customers to help their projects meet or exceed the sustainability requirements of national and global initiatives.
LOWERING ENERGY COSTS
Sherwin-Williams Coil Coatings offers cool coating technologies that create more energy-efficient metal building products and help mitigate the urban heat island effect. Direct sunlight and heat are easily absorbed by dry, exposed man-made structures, which increases surface temperature and results in higher energy costs. Cool metal roofing can offset this effect with Sherwin-Williams Solar Reflective (SR) coatings. These coatings reflect UV rays, keeping the surface of the roof cooler and reducing the amount of heat transferred into the structure - resulting in decreased energy consumption needed to cool the building.
Innovation with a Green Focus
As one of the leading manufacturers of coating products in the world, we are setting an example for the entire industry. Today we are focused on creating innovative products and manufacturing techniques that protect air and water quality while reducing the unnecessary consumption of natural resources.
We Go Above and Beyond
Environmental regulations and performance expectations are continually evolving. We make it our responsibility to direct sustainability discussions and introduce coating solutions that make compliance as effortless as possible. At Sherwin-Williams Coil Coatings, we don’t just comply with regulations, we sit on council boards and serve on committees to guarantee we help drive the conversation and are ahead of any changes.
Sherwin-Williams is also committed to researching, developing and testing our coatings to ensure they will withstand extreme weather conditions, meet environmental initiative requirements and still maintain the performance our customers expect. Our world-class laboratories carries out a wide array of tests to measure weathering performance to meet or exceed the highest industry standards.
