Membership Overview

Anyone who has an interest in coatings can benefit from membership of SCAA. The interchange of ideas on technology leads to better products and consequently bigger and wider markets and a better understanding within the industry. Through membership of SCAA, competitors become real people, not shadows. While they are vitally interested in getting their share of the market, they are also vitally interested in the industry as a whole and their responsibility towards its total image and success.

SCAA aims to foster interest in all areas of surface coatings, not just the technical aspects. In line with this policy, its current membership includes people from purchasing, marketing and sales as well as scientists and technicians employed in the research and development, quality management and technical service fields.

Join SCAA today … you will meet Manufacturers, Marketers, Users and Suppliers.
