The amount of sand falling onto the test sample without wearing through the surface must be within calculated parameters. Coatings with 70 percent PVFD on aluminum substrate show minimal chalking and fading at aamma, 10 and even 20 years of exposure.
These paints are somewhat less expensive, but have poor resistance to color fading and chalking. Tape is applied over the deformed area and sharply removed at a right angle to the panel. Gloss consistency is tested from one unit to another.
Begin your publication search by entering information into the asma below. Adherence to these standards enables architects to make reliable projections about product performance. Ambient fresh water rinse To adhere to the AAMA standards, properly prepared test panels are subjected to the following rigorous tests: In this version, an appendix was added describing differences in test procedures and performance requirements for AAMA for superior performing organic aamma, applied on a coil coating line, to aluminum architectural products.
An application for this paint would be storefront, doors, or other high-traffic areas. Search by product code or category or leave the product code field blank to see a list of all AAMA publications. This is a process that treats the metal surface chemically when the metal is immersed in or sprayed with various solutions. Includes information from the previous AAMA document. An application for 205 finish would include monumental architectural projects and projects that require long-lasting aluminum surfaces.
AAMA maintains specifications for all fenestration materials. Please contact AAMA for assistance, as needed. Please read our simple purchasing instructions first to ensure a smooth transaction. Adherence to AAMA five-year color retention and chalk resistance and AAMA one-year color retention and chalk resistance offer less, though better and good performance levels, respectively. The sample is removed and wiped dry and the adhesion test is repeated. Random samples are checked aam under a uniform light source from various angles and by instrumental methods.
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. Gloss can also be affected by environmental factors such as weathering or surface abrasion. This finish will provide good color and gloss retention. Paint that lifts off is measured as a percentage failure rate. Aaama needed, the DMC asks the appropriate committee to review and refine the document.
The finish provides good protection and adhesion; it is typically used as a base for another, final finish. The most recent AAMA standards reflect good, better, and best performance for extruded aluminum clad windows:.
Tape is scored in a prescribed cross hatch pattern and zama to a sample, and then sharply pulled off at a right angle to the plane being tested. Aa,a same ASTM test methods and performance criteria are used to evaluate color uniformity and specular gloss, which is a measure of the light reflected by the surface of a material.

The standards also give buyers an added measure of quality assurance and serve as a reference point for regulators. AAMA applies to polyester and acrylic coating and is 205 primarily for sama, light commercial and residential-grade coatings of at least 20 microns 0.
Gloss is always referenced against a standard. This specification covers factory-applied spray coatings only. 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.
This is a test for susceptibility to damage that might be sustained during shipping or installation. Film does not rupture. AAMA is the highest industry standard available, ensuring ten-year color retention and chalk resistance. Member discount will be reflected after successful login to the Checkout process. American Architectural Manufacturers Association.
For years, architects recognized and as standards for organic coatings on architectural aluminum and panels.
For all tests, there should be no azma of coating under the tape either within or outside the cross hatched area, nor blistering anywhere on the test specimen. This specification describes test procedures and performance requirements for superior performing organic coatings applied to aluminum extrusions and panels for architectural products.
A one-year South Florida weathering test is optional. Subscribe to Architectural Record. To adhere to the AAMA standards, properly prepared test panels are subjected to the following rigorous tests:. Linetec has earned a long-standing reputation as a leader in environmentally-conscious practices and finishing options.
