Claims Policy

Metal Prep, Inc. (MP)strives to supply each customer with prepainted coil that is defect free and suitable for the intended application. However, in light of the fact that the coil coating process is imperfect and that substrate quality issues can significantly affect the overall quality of product, it is very possible that imperfections may be encountered during processing of finished, coil coated product. When a rejection occurs due to a specific defect related to the coil coating process, a claim may be initiated with MP. All claim material must be quarantined immediately and preserved in a reasonable manner. It must be made available for inspection (if necessary) by an MP Representative. Material cannot be returned until authorized by MP. Return Authorization will not be provided by MP until the claim is both qualified and quantified. Please note that MP cannot accept responsibility, nor provide disposition, for any rejections of prepainted metal that occur more than one year (365 days) from the time of shipment from MP. Each claim is assigned a unique claim number. When disposition occurs, the customer is contacted by MP to provide an explanation of the disposition. In the event that financial restitution is necessary, the agreed upon resolution will be provided in the form of a credit. Any further inquiries regarding the status of a credit memo or other financial document should be made to the MP customer service department. The MP Claim Number should be referenced when making an inquiry regarding credit for a material rejection.
