Test panels can be run with project material.
AAMA specification tests are conducted on these sample panels to ensure a quality product. The test
results are kept on file for future reference. Some of the tests done include:
Impact resistance Acid resistance
Adhesion Mortar resistance
Mil thickness Pencil hardness
On-line quality assurance inspection
Through the use of our 5-stage chrome pretreatment system and our highly-automated paint line, Linetec is able to produce top quality finishes with consistent results. With this technology and our QA team inspecting every job to AMMA specifications, you can be assured of the best possible finish.
Job panels are sent to South Florida for weathering tests
Multiple rigorous performance tests determine whether a coating meets or exceeds AAMA specifications.
The weathering performance test is one of the test methods and performance criteria applied to the AAMA 2605 specification. Paint manufacturers have monitored product on a south Florida test fence for more than 30 years. Samples are placed on the fence at a 45-degree angle facing the strong tropical sun and environmental exposure. One year on the test fence equals approximately 2 ½ years of more temperate exposure.
