AAMA is typically an interior specification. In the case aamqthe AAMA Finishes Committee last refined the document in 26005 support the latest industry knowledge. Begin your publication search by entering information into the fields below.
Gloss can also be affected by environmental factors such as weathering or surface abrasion. This tests whether the coating will rupture after impact. Member discount will be reflected after successful login to the Checkout process. AAMA MEMBER Aaama Architectural Manufacturers Association, a material-neutral organization, is the source of performance standards 205 the fenestration professionals of window, door, skylight, curtain wall and storefront manufacturing companies.
Tape is scored in a prescribed cross hatch aa,a and adhered to a sample, and then sharply pulled off at a right angle to the plane being tested.
A tester pushes a pencil with F medium hardness held at a degree angle into the film and tries to rupture it. 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 metal surface and inspected at an angle of 90 degrees to the surface.
In addition, the same impact resistance and chemical resistance are used in both standards. The sample is removed and wiped dry and the adhesion test is repeated.
Tape is applied over the deformed area and sharply removed at a right angle to the panel. 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. This specification covers factory-applied spray coatings only.
In order to ensure aamma paint performance expected aaa a given application, one of three AAMA specifications should be referenced: Precipitation, ultraviolet rays, heat, and temperature extremes are all capable of breaking down exposed surfaces.

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. These paints are somewhat less expensive, but have poor resistance to color fading and chalking.
A degree gloss meter measures newly finished 26005 for a gloss value. This test is conducted in three ama 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 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 aamw of coating integrity, exterior weatherability, and general appearance over many years.
Please read our simple purchasing instructions first to ensure a smooth transaction. In accordance with standards, aluminum extrusions or panels must undergo a surface preparation for a PVDF coating application 265 involves the following steps:.
Sand is filtered through a funnel until it wears through the top coat. The term film is used interchangeably with coating.
Specular gloss can be inherent in the material, or the result of the molding process or surface texture. As important as the paint color, architects, specifiers and building owners must determine which performance specification is required. The standards also give buyers an added measure of quality assurance and serve as a reference point for regulators.

AAMA and apply to coatings of at least 30 microns 1. Beyond the stringent standards and regulations of AAMA, Linetec offers a downloadable aaja spec with specifiable differences that contribute to a projects long life, durability and sustainability.
Color Retention 10 yrs: Random samples are checked usually under a uniform light source from various angles and by instrumental methods.
