SAF Joins PPG Americas Powder CAP Program
April 14, 2009

Atlanta-based Southern Aluminum Finishing Co. Inc. (SAF) has joined the PPG Duranar Certified Applicator Program (CAP) as an Americas Powder member. The PPG CAP program certifies member applicators to apply high-performance Duranar powder coatings for commercial construction.

"We are looking forward to expanding our throughput with PPG's powder, while decreasing the amount of air pollution we create," says Penn McClatchey, SAF vice president. "It is wonderful to have an AAMA 2605 coating that reduces hazardous solvents from our processing with no loss in product finish quality."

To become part of the America's Powder CAP Program, SAF underwent a rigorous auditing process that encompassed all aspects of the coating process, from cleaning and pretreating the metal substrate to actually applying the coating. The audit also contains a continuous training and education component and specifies paint application parameters and cure schedules, as well as how finished products should be handled, packed and shipped.
