The Masters Association of Metal Finishers, which consists of finishing shops in the New York and New Jersey area, will celebrate its 100th anniversary with a Centennial Celebration on Saturday, April 8. The organization is gearing up for the celebration, highlighting 100 years of service to its community of industrial finishers.

Donna-Jean Plante, MAMF executive director, says the celebration will be held at the Chart House in Weejawken, New Jersey. Attendees will hear a presentation on the history of the MAMF and other significant contributions to the finishing industry.

The MAMF was formed in 1917 and is one of the oldest surface finishing associations in the U.S., formed shortly after American Electroplaters Society formed in 1913. The organization works to educate, and promote the metal finishing industry and supports local and federal regulations governing environmental and worker protection policies.

Serving as an affiliate of the National Association of Surface Finishers (NASF), the MAMF operates to provide a localized voice and serve as an advocate on issues impacting the Metal Finishing industry.

  • Test Methods For Evaluating Anodized Aluminum

    Benefits of anodizing include durability, color stability, ease of maintenance, aesthetics, cost of initial finish and the fact that it is a safe and healthy process. Maximizing these benefits to produce a high–performance aluminum finish can be accomplished by incorporating test procedures in the manufacturing process.  

  • Designing for Opportunity: The Aluminum Advantage

    Many industries that require innovative solutions in cost reduction and weight savings are turning to aluminum as a substitute for stainless steel and other carbon steel alloys for parts and components.
