The National Association for Surface Finishing - NASF - represents the interests of businesses and professionals throughout the surface coatings industry.

NASF’s highly regarded programs and activities reflect its mission to:

  • Promote the vital role of surface technology in the global manufacturing value chain.

NASF provides a vital and active link to companies, professionals and technical experts through its events, programs, committees and communications. It serves every specialty – and every job title – within the surface finishing universe.

Membership is open to job shop and “captive” applicators, industrial users, suppliers of chemicals, equipment and services, technologists, researchers and academics.
