American Faucet and Coatings Corporation

Quality

Computer Controlled for Optimal Performance

We are able to program our computer-controlled system to utilize standard or customized “recipes” for your project, so we are able to meet your requirements and repeat them consistently on all coatings.

This means every piece we coat will have the same uniform and consistent coating.


Guaranteed Performance and Durability

Our PVD coated products are resistant to abrasions, and can even withstand repeated scouring with steel wool without tarnishing. This incredible durability means that your products will still look fresh out of the box even after many years of use.

We have tested our PVD finishes against over 100 common household products, from liquid cleaners and scouring powders to aerosols, lotions and gels. Not even highly corrosive salt air and sea mist can damage our PVD coating.


Quality Control Standards

Achieving consistently high quality is no accident. It requires defining standards and requirements, and adhering to specific proven methods to deliver outstanding results.
