American Coatings Association


ACA In Action 

ACA is urging Congress to enact legislation which provides for a broad-based investment in infrastructure repair and modernization that includes the following:

  • increased public and private funding
  • a state-of-the-art information and telecommunications system
  • modern road, wastewater and drinking water systems
  • improved inland waterways and ports
  • annual authorization language that contains a requirement to consider corrosion protection criteria for federal projects

By protecting the surfaces to which they are applied, paints and coatings will be a significant contributor to any effort to improve the infrastructure.
