Standards were developed to assure the building community that coatings on extruded aluminum retain their integrity. The most recent AAMA standards reflect good, better, and best performance for extruded aluminum clad windows:. These paints are somewhat less expensive, but have poor resistance to color fading and chalking.

This test is conducted in three categories:.

AAMA is the highest azma standard available, ensuring ten-year color retention and chalk resistance. In the case ofthe AAMA Finishes Committee last refined the document in to support the latest industry knowledge.

This test is conducted in three categories: CAD detail project gallery. An application for this paint would be storefront, doors, or other high-traffic areas. A standard which defines the performance requirements for superior organic coatings on aluminum extrusions and panels. Adherence to these standards enables architects to make reliable projections 205 product performance.


These specifications apply to South Florida outdoor exposure and laboratory accelerated testing results as shown below. 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. A degree gloss meter measures newly finished aluminum for a gloss value.


This finish will provide good color and gloss retention. AAMA and apply to coatings of at least 30 microns 1. This is a process that treats the metal surface chemically when the metal is immersed in or sprayed with various solutions.

A tester pushes a pencil with F medium hardness held at a degree angle into the film and tries to rupture it. The sample panel is immersed in boiling water for 20 minutes. Our technical experts at Linetec provide valuable industry education of high-performance architectural finishes to architects, engineers, specifiers and manufacturers. Adherence to AAMA five-year color retention and chalk resistance and AAMA one-year color retention aana chalk resistance offer less, though better and good performance levels, respectively.

To adhere to the AAMA standards, properly prepared test panels are subjected to the following rigorous tests:. In places where there are environmental concerns, chrome pretreatment may not be allowed. Film does not rupture.

In accordance with standards, aluminum extrusions or panels must undergo a surface preparation for a PVDF coating application that involves wama following steps:. In addition, the same impact resistance and chemical resistance are used in both standards. 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. The amount of sand falling onto the test sample without wearing through the surface must be within calculated parameters.

The term film is used interchangeably with coating.


Please read our simple purchasing instructions first to ensure a smooth transaction. Gloss is always referenced against aamma standard. Acid or alkaline wash to remove impurities A fresh water rinse Chemical conversion—a chromium or non-chromium pretreatment.

Specular gloss can be inherent in the material, or the result of the molding process or surface texture.

This is a test for a coating lifting off the substrate. In order to ensure the paint performance expected for a given application, one of three Aam specifications should be referenced: Sand is filtered through a funnel until it wears through the top coat.

Linetec has earned a long-standing reputation as a leader in environmentally-conscious practices and finishing options. AAMA is typically an interior specification.

The purpose of these standards is to help architects, contractors, and building owners specify factory-applied organic coatings that will provide and maintain a superior level of performance in terms of coating integrity, exterior weatherability, and general appearance over many years. CAD detail project gallery. Search by product code or category or leave the product code field blank to see a list of all AAMA publications.

Color Retention 10 yrs: Aamw can also be affected by environmental factors such as weathering or surface abrasion. 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.
