Protective industrial finish eliminates call backs for fabricator

Philadelphia, PA (September 24, 2007) - Alexander Services, LLC, Portland, OR, announced that using PERMALACâ„¢ protective spray lacquer coatings on their metal fabrications has eliminated all surface finish related call backs. Alexander Services is a custom fabricator and installer of high-end architectural interiors and exteriors. The company now finish coats every project with PERMALACâ„¢, a unique industrial grade lacquer made by Peacock Laboratories, Inc.

Rick Hardman, the Safety Manager for Alexander Services, says "PERMALAC is extremely easy to use, cures in about 2 hours, and can be sprayed vertically or horizontally without drip formation. Non-ferrous metals like aluminum do not require a wash primer before coating with PERMALAC. During installation, over-sprays are never a problem because this lacquer doesn't develop the bumpy orange peel like finish fabricators get with other lacquers. PERMALAC just melts into itself, but even if a texture did develop, we just spray a little more PERMALAC and we obtain that smooth-as-glass finish our customers require."

PERMALAC has been used to protect fabrications of wood and ceramic as well as copper, brass, bronze, aluminum and other metal substrates. Even difficult metals like stainless steel present no bonding problems with PERMALAC. "Regardless of the outside environment, whether it's salt spray from the sea, or the hot sun of the desert, PERMALAC stands up where all the other lacquers we've tried have failed," Hardman said.

A number of Las Vegas hotel/casinos count on PERMALAC to protect their ornamental structures created by Alexander Services. That's because Alexander Services uses PERMALAC on all their fabrications, both interior and exterior. Since starting to use PERMALAC five years ago, the company hasn't been called back to correct the finish on any the hundreds of commercial or residential commissions they've installed.
