Industries we serve
We offer a wide range of liquid and powder coatings designed specifically for architectural applications in mind. It is suitable for use on aluminum and mild steel for both interior and exterior applications. Super durable polyester TGIC/Primid as well FEVE/Fluorourethane product line of Ultracure powder coatings, offers exceptional durability, good chemical resistance, mechanical and physical properties. It’s a true sustainable alternative to liquid PVDF and anodized finishes. These powder coatings are designed to meet & exceed performance requirements of AAMA 2605, 2604 and 2603 with excellent weatherability including color & gloss retention. These coatings are available in variety of colors, gloss levels and effects including metallic, structure, texture & more.
Some of the applications include:
- Individual housing
- Window frames
- Light Poles
- Vents, grills & Air exchangers
- Government buildings
AAMA (American Architectural Manufacturers Association) sets the standards for coating performance on architectural applications. AAMA produces 3 different level of ‘Voluntary Specification Performance Requirements and Test Procedures for Pigmented Organic Coatings on Aluminum Extrusions and Panels’. These are AAMA 2605, AAMA 2604 and AAMA 2603 and each requires a different level of coating testing and performance.
To meet the AAMA specifications, coated panels are put through a series of tests to determine how the aesthetic and protective qualities of the coatings perform.
AAMA tests include:
- Dry film hardness
- Impact resistance
- Abrasion resistance
- Chemical resistance
- Corrosion resistance
- Humidity resistance
- Weathering resistance
AAMA (American Architectural Manufacturers Association) coating specifications
AAMA 2605 requires that coated panels are tested in Florida for 10 years. At the end of the testing, the color must not change more than 5 Delta E units. Chalking must not be more than a number 8 rating based on the ASTM 4214 test and there should be a minimum of 50% gloss retention.
AAMA 2604 requires that coated panels are tested in Florida for 5 years. At the end of the testing, the color must not change more than 5 Delta E units. Chalking must not be more than a number 8 rating based on the ASTM 4214 test and there should be a minimum of 30% gloss retention.
AAMA 2603 requires that coated panels are tested in Florida for 1 year. At the end of the testing, checking, cracking, crazing or loss of adhesion after taping and only slight chalking and fading should occur to the coating.
