Cleveland Steel Container Case Study: UV/EB Metal Coil Coating for Steel Containers

William Parish, Cleveland Steel Container

Abstract: Cleveland Steel Container Corporation (CSC) designs and manufactures steel pails primarily to safely transport hazardous materials as well as non‐hazardous materials. Manufacturing of covers and bottoms for these pails is consolidated at a single plant. CSC determined that the efficiency of producing covers and bottoms could be greatly increased using a coil‐fed process. This case study describes CSC selection of UV and EB technology for coating the coils to be used in this process and their experience in implementing this technology.
