Advancing a Sustainable Future

Have you turned on your lights lately, used the Internet or your portable phone, commuted to work or visited your doctor? You may not realize it, but you’ve relied on surface finishing. Millions of products we use every day are “finished” with some form of coatings technology, through processes and chemistries that are often not well-understood and appreciated for their vital role in manufacturing.

Surface technology adds value to products by making them last longer, look better or perform in ways that would otherwise be impossible. In this way, we contribute to the nation’s productivity, improve our quality of life and enhance our safety and security. Industries that use a range of surface finishing technologies include: electronics, automotive, aerospace and defense, energy, medical, agriculture, construction, tools and dies, shipbuilding, steel, plumbing and household appliances.

The National Association for Surface Finishing (NASF) is a trade association whose mission is to promote and advance a sustainable future for the North American surface finishing industry.

The association represents the business, technical and scientific, and educational interests of the industry as well as the advocacy efforts of the surface technology community in North America. The AESF Foundation is part of the NASF and focuses exclusively on the technical, education and research programs that reflect innovation in the field.
