Architectural Metal Coatings

 | 

The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) analyzes products to provide architects with benchmarks for quality in selecting the right products for new construction and renovation projects. 

The AAMA 2603 performance specification is for pigmented organic coatings on architectural aluminum extrusions and panels.

DURACRON® Acrylic Extrusion Coatings

Duracron extrusion coatings, the first aluminum extrusion coatings offered by PPG more than 40 years ago, are acrylic-based 1-coat systems. With decades of field-proven performance, they meet AAMA 2603 specifications and offer good film integrity, color control and mar resistance.

Recommended for residential or interior applications such as window and door frames, railings and trim, Duracron extrusion coatings can be custom-formulated to match most Duranar and ACRYNAR® coatings colors. They are not recommended for use on monumental buildings or high-rise curtainwalls.

POLYCRON® High-Solids Polyester Extrusion Coatings

Polycron polyester-based coatings are 1-coat systems recommended for residential or interior architectural applications such as window and door frames, railings and trim. Their high-solids polyester resin technology enables them to meet increased restrictions on volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions while fulfilling AAMA 2603 performance specifications.  

Polycron coatings can be applied over inhibitive primers to enhance corrosion resistance and they are formulated to match and complement most DURANAR® and Acrynar coatings colors. Although Polycron coatings offer good film integrity, color control and mar resistance, they are not recommended for exterior use on monumental buildings or high-rise curtainwalls.

MACROFLEX™ Flexible Polyester Extrusion Coatings

Macroflex coatings are flexible polyester extrusion coatings formulated specially for the recreational vehicle market when post-forming is required. They exhibit good mar and burnish resistance and provide excellent flexibility.
