ABC Aluminum Solutions Announces Certification by Qualicoat, the leader in technically superior coatings – enabling ABC to offer the ultimate Pretreatment and Finishing solutions globally available.

Certification by this premium developer and supplier of proprietary coating formulas is extremely difficult to obtain. Qualicoat has U.S. Federal approval for coatings that include a broad array of defense applications – including for finishes undetectable by radar – so advanced is the research and chemistry that Qualicoat is recognized for. Equally, Qualicoat applies these levels of knowledge and expertise and the highest quality standards for solutions to every customer’s application.

Now ABC is a preferred supplier of Qualicoat finishes and the Diploma was issued today. Clearly, Qualicoat hands these out rarely, and ABC had to undergo a comprehensive program of assessment and evaluation. This examined ABC’s new state-of-the art vertical paint plant and ABC’s paint and coatings technicians’ capabilities and expertise in order to qualify for this prestigious accreditation that has such value and takes ABC to the highest level in finishing capabilities.

What this means for ABC’s customers is everything. For a start, Qualicoat supports ABC’s expert team with access to their full laboratory resources. Whichever industry, whatever application, from Aerospace and Architecture through Consumer Electronics to Tanks and Transportation, Qualicoat’s exclusive, advanced and Government approved formulas can do the job better than any other.

And obviously, the physical application of such science is as vital a part of the final appearance and durability as Qualicoat’s specific formula for the coating.

And Qualicoat and ABC as a partnership can refine not just the preparation, content and thickness of the coating but also the color. A wide range is offered. For more information about Qualicoat, please visit their website at
