AAMA 2604-13 Verification
AAMA 2604-13 is among the highest set of standards for coated aluminum extrusions and panels. This verification means Keystone Koating has met the specifications, performance requirements and test procedures set by AAMA-2604-13 for organic coating of building components.
This is one of the highest performance criteria for chalk resistance, fade resistance, gloss retention, color retention, durability and other factors that are key to the appearance and durability of architectural structures. Verification is achieved through rigorous testing over an extended period of time.
The standards set by AAMA ensure that coatings provide superior protection against the sun’s UV rays, withstanding 5 years of harsh, southern Florida exposure — where the sun is the most direct and humidity is high.
Please contact Keystone Koating to discuss obtaining AAMA 2604-13 verification for your project.
