FGIA Updates Suite Of Aluminum Finishes Documents

The Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA) released three updated documents describing test procedures and performance requirements for organic coatings applied to aluminum extrusions and panels for architectural products. All three documents, AAMA 2603, 2604, AND 2605, are now available for purchase.

"The updated 2022 version of AAMA 2603, 2604 and 2605 have significantly defined the new technologies of pretreatment on aluminum in Section 7.2.2 according to the chemical supplier's recommendation," says Carl Troiano Chair of the FGIA AMC Finishes Committee. "Some of the other significant changes are Section 8.9 on weathering and Section 8.4 for Peel Adhesion. These documents are the guidelines for aluminum finishes on organic coatings on aluminum and will help guide architects and specifiers in their choice of choosing the correct type of performance for their specific projects."

AAMA 2603-22, AAMA 2604-22 and AAMA 2605-22, as well as other AAMA documents available from FGIA, may be purchased from the online store at the discounted member rate of $20 or the non-member price of $60.
