Best Practices

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
  • Offering material transparency
  • 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.

Taking Initiative

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.


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.
