The sample panel is immersed in boiling water for 20 minutes.
Sama maintains specifications for all fenestration materials. Boiling Water Film Adhesion: These specifications apply to South Florida outdoor exposure and laboratory accelerated testing results as shown below.
Ambient fresh water rinse To adhere to the AAMA standards, properly prepared 2650 panels are subjected to the following rigorous tests: Unlike roll-form aluminum, clad extrusions are formed first and then painted.
This finish will provide good color and gloss retention. Specular gloss can be inherent in the material, or the result of the molding process or surface texture.
Subscribe to Architectural Record. Environmental conditions can cause coatings to fail. 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.
CAD detail project gallery. An application for this finish would include monumental architectural projects and projects that require long-lasting aluminum surfaces.
For years, architects recognized and as standards for organic coatings on architectural aluminum and panels. This specification describes test procedures and performance requirements for superior performing organic coatings applied to aluminum extrusions and panels for architectural products.
AAMA is the high-performance exterior specification. Gloss can also be affected by environmental factors such as weathering or surface abrasion. Film does not rupture. AAMA and apply to coatings of at least 30 microns 1.
This test is conducted in three categories: 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.
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. In accordance with standards, aluminum extrusions or panels must undergo a surface preparation for a PVDF coating application that involves the following steps:.

An application for this paint would be storefront, doors, or other high-traffic areas. Both involve test methods and criteria not required under 6205 standards also give buyers an added measure of quality assurance and serve as a reference point for regulators.
AAMA MEMBER 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.
Paint that lifts off is measured as a percentage failure rate. Begin your publication search by entering information into the fields below.
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. The most recent AAMA standards reflect good, better, and best performance for extruded aluminum clad windows:.
This tests the number of years a product is likely to resist wearing off. Includes information from the previous AAMA document.
These paints are somewhat less expensive, but have poor resistance to color fading and chalking. A tester pushes a pencil with F medium hardness held at a degree angle into the film and tries to rupture it.
Standards were developed to assure the building community that coatings on extruded aluminum retain their integrity. If needed, the DMC asks the appropriate committee to review and aana the document.
To adhere to the AAMA standards, properly prepared test panels are subjected to the following rigorous tests:. As important as the paint color, architects, specifiers and building owners must determine which performance specification is required. 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 qama surface and inspected at an angle of 90 degrees to the surface.
