I am going to clarify the three coatings specifications for you. People so often think the AAMA specifications are just for liquid coatings as these are the same specifications high performance liquid paints meet. This is incorrect — they are for coatings — so whether it is a liquid coating or a powder coating, these specifications apply. Anodized is different - it changes the substrate itself - so it is classed as a finish rather than a coating and thus comes with its own set of AAMA specifications. With this in mind, for coatings there are only three AAMA specifications to be familiar with: AAMA — in the powder world, the coatings that meet and exceed the performance requirements of this specification are known as a Standard Polyester coating.

Architectural Finishes Surface Treatment Aluminum is an ideal substrate for the application of architectural finishes. There are many reasons to treat the surface. The Untreated Surface Surfaces do not always need treatment after extruding. Load-bearing structures and machine parts are examples of products where the surface quality is satisfactory without any treatment. Why Coat Aluminum Extrusions?
