Choosing windows and doors for a project is a decision that will nearly endure a lifetime. With endless color and shade possibilities, UV-resistant powder coating provides a durable surface treatment to reduce maintenance. Simple cleaning with some water, a sponge and a neutral, non-scratching soap, will allow the finish to withstand the test of time without having to invest in paint or varnish.
Powder coating is an environmentally friendly way to paint your windows and doors which excludes the use of VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) and requires less energy than many other surface treatments. Similar to anodizing, powder coating is highly resistant against UV radiation and protects against corrosion. In the first step of the powder coating process, the aluminum is degreased, etched and a protective conversion layer is put on the surface. Next, a negative charge is applied on the powder particles, to attach the powder coating to the grounded aluminum. Finally, profiles are cured in an oven in order to polymerize the powder coating into a stable, high quality, scratch resistant finish.
Our Reynaers aluminum windows and doors offer the following ranges of AAMA finishes:
AAMA 2603 (Qualicoat class I): Available in all RAL colors.
AAMA 2604 (Qualicoat class II): Available in a wide range of RAL colors and a series of colors that give an anodized look to your profiles.
