ACL specializes in powder coating custom solutions focusing in the following areas; architectural aluminum, corrosion and decorative. Items as small as a pen and as large as a 10,000 pound pipe are successfully and economically coated in order to withstand hostile environments including under-sea, mines and paper mills. Powder coating is also excellent at withstanding exposure to chemicals, inclement weather, humidity, abrasion and other conditions detrimental to performance and appearance. Powder coating decreases the wear and tear of the finish, resulting in decreased maintenance cost and greater life cycle of the parts.
ACL has the ability to coat any item in single to multi-coat electrostatic powder coating and single and multi coat fluid bed coating. ACL is also an approved source for military and automotive coatings. ACL is truly your one stop coating shop.
ACL distinguishes itself from our competition in three main areas; (1) state of the art equipment, (2) world class pretreatment and (3) processes which result in a higher quality finish and longer life cycle.
