The standards also give buyers an added measure of quality assurance and serve as a reference point for regulators. Subscribe to Architectural Record. A one-year South Florida weathering test is optional. Gloss is always referenced against a standard. The water remains boiling for the full minute test period. The amount of sand falling onto the test sample without wearing through the surface must be within aama parameters.

Precipitation, ultraviolet rays, heat, and temperature extremes are all capable of breaking down exposed surfaces.

Coatings with 70 percent PVFD on aluminum substrate show minimal chalking and fading at 5, 10 and even 20 years of exposure. Specular gloss can be inherent in the material, or the result of aamaa molding process or surface texture. In this version, an appendix was added describing differences in test procedures and performance requirements for AAMA for superior performing organic coatings, applied on a coil coating line, to aluminum architectural products.

AAMA MEMBER Aamma Architectural Aamq Association, a material-neutral organization, is the source of performance standards for the fenestration professionals of window, door, skylight, curtain wall and storefront manufacturing companies.


In places where there are environmental concerns, chrome pretreatment may not be allowed.

When formulated into a coating composition containing a minimum of 70 percent PVDF resin, the resultant coatings exhibit superior color and gloss retention, chalk and corrosion resistance, flexibility, stain resistance, overall durability, and can stand up to direct sun, extreme temperature variations and acidic pollutants without fading. The panel with tape over the cross hatch patterns should be immersed in distilled or de-ionized water at degrees F for 24 hours.

The American Architectural Manufacturers Association AAMA is a source of finish performance standards, product certification and educational programs for the window, door, and skylight industry.

AAMA maintains specifications for all fenestration materials. A standard which defines the performance requirements for superior organic coatings on aluminum extrusions and panels. AAMA and apply to coatings 26605 at least 30 microns aam. Ambient fresh water rinse To adhere to the AAMA standards, properly prepared test panels are subjected to the following rigorous tests: CAD detail project gallery.

Both involve test methods and criteria not required under CAD detail project gallery. Sand is filtered through a funnel until it wears through the top coat. Adherence to these standards enables architects to make reliable projections about product performance.

For more than a decade, environmental responsibility has been written into our core values. This 26605 a process that treats the metal surface chemically when the metal is immersed in or sprayed with various solutions. The sample is removed and wiped dry and the adhesion test is repeated. AAMA is the highest industry standard available, ensuring 205 color retention and chalk resistance. AAMA is the high-performance exterior specification.


A degree gloss meter measures newly finished aluminum for a gloss value. Beyond the stringent standards and regulations of AAMA, Linetec offers a downloadable guide spec with specifiable differences that contribute to a projects long life, durability and sustainability.

For all tests, there should be no removal of coating under the tape either within or outside the cross hatched area, nor blistering anywhere on the test specimen. The Highest Standard in the Industry In accordance with standards, aluminum extrusions or panels must undergo a surface preparation for a PVDF coating application that involves the following steps: Tape is applied over the deformed area and sharply removed at a right angle to the panel.

This results in superior adhesion and a consistently thick finish so that clad products retain color and gloss qualities. Our technical experts at Linetec provide valuable industry education of high-performance architectural finishes to architects, engineers, specifiers and manufacturers.

Coatings should be visibly free from flow lines, streaks, blisters or other surface imperfections in the dry-film state on exposed surfaces when observed at a distance of 10 feet 3 m from the metal surface and inspected at an angle of 90 degrees to the surface.
