In addition, the same impact resistance and chemical resistance are used in both standards. CAD detail project gallery. Our technical experts at Linetec provide valuable industry education of high-performance architectural finishes to aaka, engineers, specifiers and manufacturers.
In accordance with standards, aluminum extrusions or panels must undergo a surface preparation for a PVDF coating application that involves the following steps:. A standard which defines the performance requirements for superior organic coatings on aluminum extrusions and panels.
This finish will provide good color and gloss retention. It also will provide good hardness and abrasion resistance.
This is a test for a coating lifting off the substrate.
These paints are somewhat less expensive, but have poor resistance to color fading and chalking. Please contact AAMA for assistance, as needed. Specular gloss can be inherent in the material, or the result of the molding process or surface texture.

Gloss consistency is tested from one unit to another. For all tests, there should be no removal of coating under the tape either within or outside the cross hatched area, 205 blistering anywhere on the test specimen.
Begin your publication search by entering information into the fields below.
This tests the number of years a product is likely to resist wearing off. Boiling Water Film Adhesion: Acid or alkaline wash to remove impurities A fresh water rinse Chemical conversion—a chromium or non-chromium pretreatment. Standards were developed to assure the building community that coatings on extruded aluminum retain their integrity. Paint that lifts off is measured as a percentage failure rate.
The sample panel should then be removed and wiped dry, after which the film adhesion test is repeated. 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.
American Architectural Manufacturers 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. AAMA applies to polyester and acrylic coating and is intended primarily for interior, light commercial and residential-grade coatings of at least 20 microns 0.
Color uniformity must be consistent with color range or numerical value established between the approval source and the applicator.
An application for this finish would include monumental architectural projects and projects that require long-lasting aluminum surfaces. Both involve test 260 and criteria not required under An application for this paint would be storefront, doors, or other high-traffic areas.
Adherence to these standards enables architects to make reliable projections about product performance. American Architectural Manufacturers Association.

Film does not rupture. In places where there are environmental concerns, chrome pretreatment may not be allowed. As important as the paint color, architects, specifiers and building owners must determine which performance specification is required.
The term film is used interchangeably with coating. Subscribe to Architectural Record. 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 2650 architectural products.

This results in superior adhesion and a consistently thick finish so that clad products retain color and gloss qualities. Random samples are checked usually under a uniform light source from various angles aamw by instrumental methods. If needed, the DMC asks the appropriate committee to review and refine the document.
This is a test for susceptibility to damage that might be sustained during shipping or installation.
While AAMA addresses complete coatings systems based on 30mg aamaa chrome pretreatment; AAMA applies to high-performance coatings based on 40mg of chrome pretreatment Both coating specifications may use a non-chrome pretreatment process. 265 one-year South Florida weathering test is optional. Environmental conditions can cause coatings to fail.
