The American Coatings Association (ACA) represents both companies and professionals working in the paint and coatings industry.
The paint and coatings industry is an important and dynamic part of our nation’s economy, and plays a key role in creating products that help preserve and protect everything, from our every day objects to our most important infrastructure.
ACA serves as a forceful and effective advocate and voice on legislative, regulatory and judicial issues at the federal, state and local levels.
