When selecting and specifying antimicrobial coatings, Linetec offers guidelines to help ensure your projects’ finished architectural aluminum products perform as required. Demonstrating our commitment and confidence, we offer you a 10-year standard warranty for antimicrobial coatings.
The warranty and specification for antimicrobial coatings are quite similar to Linetec’s other 70% PVDF resin-based fluoropolymer coatings and available in nearly any color option; standard and custom colors, mica and metallic coatings. This three-coat finishing system with antimicrobial protection is applied in our quality-controlled paint facility to meet AAMA 2605. Published by the Fenestration & Glazing Industry Association (FGIA), this is the industry’s most stringent standard for architectural coatings.
Most commonly used when specifying high-performance coatings on exterior applications, the AAMA 2605 specification also lends itself to high-traffic, high-touch interior surfaces. These finishes are proven to exhibit outstanding resistance to humidity, color change, chalk, gloss loss and chemicals for at least 10 years. Linetec’s standard warranty covers the same timeframe and similar details.
When coatings specified to meet AAMA 2605 are infused with antimicrobial agents, they further contribute to a building’s performance and cleanliness throughout the useful lifespan of the finish. Their protective properties inhibit the growth of mold, mildew, bacteria and other microbes that can produce unpleasant odors, unsightly stains or physically deteriorate the finished metal surface.
