Unlike brick, cement, wood, and many other building materials, prepainted metal can be recycled without loss of quality. Steel continually recovers its original performance properties, even after multiple times of recycling, allowing them to be used again and again. In fact, about 95% of the prepainted metal used in buildings are collected and recycled after they have served their purpose. By contrast, the performance characteristics of most non-metallic materials degrade after recycling, resulting in a loss of strength, durability, and aesthetic appeal.
