An industry organisation supported by members of the aluminium industry. AFSA acts as the co-ordinating body for various aluminium market sector associations with a view to assisting the development of markets, both local and export. Services include provisions of technical and commercial information to a variety of interested persons/institutions/companies.
This guide has been produced by AFSA to assist the architectural profession to select from the wide range of architectural products, finishes, materials, shapes and forms available from the aluminium industry. Also to understand and specify architectural finishes for optimum performance and aesthetic effect.
This edition of AFSA News is devoted to Surface Finishing and provides a description of the types of surface finishing used in architectural aluminium applications – anodising, powder coating and coil coating.
