Why should I choose Finishing Dynamics?

Since 2004, Finishing Dynamics continues to lead the way in sustainable practices and top quality finishes. We also offer engineering, fabrication and finishing all under one roof in partnership with our sister company, American Metalcraft. Because we are a horizontal line, we can paint a variety of profiles and shapes and have one of the largest capability windows in the Southeast – painting up to 38’ in length. Customers aren’t relegated to standard colors and can choose from almost limitless color options including micas, two-tones and splatter finishes. Post-fabrication painting offers the best protection of edges, covering welds and corners like no other process.

What types of products can you coat using PVDF?

We can coat aluminum architectural products such as coping, brake metal, wall panels, soffit and fascia panels, brackets, ornamental and perforated panels, frames, extrusions, custom shapes and so much more. We can also coat steel.*
