Societies and Associations

The Institute of Metal Finishing

The international institute for industrial and academic professionals in the surface finishing, enhancing and coating fields. From electroplater, painter, anodiser, galvaniser through to researcher in the latest micro and nano techniques, the Institute is for you. Mission Statement "To provide a focus for Surface Engineering within the UK through the fulfilment of the technical, educational and professional needs at all levels for both the individual and companies involved in the industry."

NASF - National Association for Surface Finishing

The National Association for Surface Finishing (NASF) is a trade association whose mission is to promote the advancement of the North American surface finishing industry globally. NASF was created as a means to better serve the needs of the surface finishing industry by reorganizing and bringing together the members of the American Electroplaters and Surface Finishers Society (AESF), the Metal Finishing Suppliers Association (MFSA) and the National Association of Metal Finishers (NAMF).

International Society of Electrochemistry

ISE was founded in 1949 by leading European and American Electrochemists to serve the growing needs of electrochemistry in becoming a modern scientific discipline. At that time only a handful of experts were assembled in the original CITCE (Comité International de Thermodynamique et Cinétique Electrochimiques). Since then the association has evolved and comprises now about 1400 individual members and more than 30 Corporate Members (teaching institutions, non-profit-making research organizations and learned societies) and Corporate Sustaining Members (industrial and commercial organizations). Its membership comes from more than 60 countries and is organized in over 36 regional sections. Both industrialized and developing countries from all five continents are represented. ISE is, therefore, a truly world-wide organization. ISE is a non-profit-making organization with its seat in Lausanne, Switzerland.


ZVO Zentralverbandes Oberflächentechnik

Die moderne Oberflächentechnik hat sich in den letzten Jahren zur wichtigen Schlüsselindustrie mit zunehmender volkswirtschaftlicher und ökologischer Bedeutung entwickelt. Sie ermöglicht die zuverlässige Funktionalität unterschiedlichster Bauteile - und vermeidet jährlich Korrosions- und Verschleißschäden in vielfacher Milliardenhöhe.

SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings

SSPC was founded in 1950 as the Steel Structures Painting Council, a non-profit professional society concerned with the use of coatings to protect industrial steel structures. In 1997, the name of the association was changed to The Society for Protective Coatings to better reflect the changing nature of coatings technology and the ever-expanding types of construction materials.

SSPC is the only non-profit association that is focused on the protection and preservation of concrete, steel and other industrial and marine structures and surfaces through the use of high-performance industrial coatings. SSPC is the leading source of information on surface preparation, coating selection, coating application, environmental regulations, and health and safety issues that affect the protective coatings industry.

ECSJ - The Electrochemical Society of Japan

The Society was founded in 1933 to foster scientific and industrial progress in the fields of electrochemistry and industrial physical chemistry. The intervening years have seen rapid changes in both academic and industrial environments, with important increases in the scope covered by the discipline of electrochemistry, as well as in the circumstances affecting the industry. The Society continues to monitor these developments, remaining responsive to this rapid progress, and making continuing contributions to advances in this field.

American Galvanizers Association (AGA)

The American Galvanizers Association (AGA) is a non-profit trade association dedicated to serving the needs of after-fabrication galvanizers, fabricators, architects, specifiers, and engineers. AGA provides technical support on todays innovative applications and state-of-the-art technological developments in hot-dip galvanizing for corrosion control.


Die SWISSGALVANIC ist ein Arbeitgeberverband auf dem Gebiet der Galvano- und Oberflächentechnik. Es gibt heute wohl kaum ein Produkt in welchem Teile eingebaut sind, die nicht galvanisch veredelt oder geschützt werden. Denken wir hier z.B. an die Uhrenindustrie oder Automobilindustrie, wo bis zu kleinsten Teilen vergoldet, verchromt oder mit anderen Oberflächenveredelungsverfahren veredelt oder geschützt werden. Viele Produkte werden mit galvanischen Oberflächenverfahren auch gegen Korrosion geschützt.

IPCAssociation Connecting Electronics Industries

Since 1957, IPCAssociation Connecting Electronics Industries has been guiding the electronic interconnection industry through its dramatic changes. A global trade association dedicated to the competitive excellence and financial success of its more than 2,700 member companies, IPC represents all facets of the industry, including design, printed circuit board manufacturing and electronics assembly. As a member-driven organization and leading source for industry standards, training, market research and public policy advocacy, IPC supports programs to meet the needs of an estimated $1.5 trillion global electronics industry. IPC maintains additional offices in Taos, N.M.; Arlington, Va.; Garden Grove, Calif.; Stockholm, Sweden; and Shanghai, China.


Metal Finishers' Association of India, popularly known as MFAI, was established as a registered body in 1973 by a group of dedicated electroplaters in Mumbai, then called Bombay. In the last 34 years, the association has steadily grown and today, enjoys the status as the premier professional body of electroplaters and metal finishers of the country, with a membership of over 800, representing research and academic institutions and the industry.
