 SAF 3-Day-Out Paint ProgramSAF announces 3-Day-Out Paint Program for Aluminum Extrusions & Sheet

Atlanta, GA – August 14, 2013 – SAF (Southern Aluminum Finishing Co.,Inc.) adds a 3 day paint service for their stock aluminum extrusions and sheet. The SAF 3-Day-Out Paint Program features quality Fluoropolymer, AAMA 2605 compliant painted extrusions and sheets in just 3 business days.

“With coordinated efforts throughout the company, SAF has demonstrated the ability to consistently ship custom paint orders faster than anyone in the industry,” according to Penn McClatchey, co-CEO.  “The 3-Day-Out Paint Program is a formal commitment to our aluminum extrusion and sheet customers, whose profits often depend on delivery performance.”

Our Paint Program has met a real need for customers requiring quick turnaround painted aluminum. To be eligible for the 3-Day-Out Paint Program customers must select from catalog-listed, in-stock aluminum sheet or extrusions, and choose colors from the SAF stock paint and SAF EZ mix color inventory.  Custom colors can be mixed to match paint panel samples but must be submitted in advance.  SAF has fastest results with custom colors that are 2-coat Fluoropolymers and are non-exotic, non XL, non-Metallic, non-mica, and non-barrier.

3 Day Out Paint Program Details:

  • SAF must have the catalog-listed aluminum sheet or extrusions in stock.
  • Available paint codes are those stocked by SAF or available as SAF EZ mix colors*.
  • Orders must be $5000.00 or less, but larger jobs may be accepted under these terms if capacity is available.

* EZ mix colors refer to colors mixable by SAF, or matching paint panel samples submitted earlier. Over the years SAF has matched thousands of commonly specified PPG and Valspar paint codes, so there is a chance that the color you need is already on file. If your paint color is not on file, panels can be submitted for custom match. EZ mix colors are 2-coat Fluoropolymer AAMA 2605 compliant coating which is non-exotic, non XL, non-Metallic, non-mica, and non-barrier.

While the 3-Day-Out Paint Program is also limited to orders less than $5000, SAF encourages customers to request quick turnaround of larger jobs that meet other program criteria.
