American Coatings Association


ACA In Action

ACA recently sent members of Congress an Issue Backgrounder urging passage of the IMAGINE Act. This legislation  would

encourage investing in new techniques and materials, including coatings, that would help to extend the life of critical public works. By protecting the surfaces to which they are applied, coatings will be a significant contributor to any effort to improve U.S. infrastructure.

Specifically, the IMAGINE Act would provide funding to underwrite and establish the following:

  • An Interagency Innovative Materials Task Force;
  • The Innovative Materials Hub;
  • Key Research;
  • The Innovative Bridge Program; and
  • A Water Infrastructure Innovation Program

ACA hopes to work with Congressional members to build a 21st century infrastructure designed to meet the needs of our 21st century challenges.
