All these referenced finish documents show that your finish meets a minimum level of performance. AAMA 653 now provides the ability to demonstrate the same level of performance for a finish on wood and cellulosic substrates.”
The test procedures and performance requirements described in AAMA 653 are specific to factory-applied coatings intended for service in exterior environments. The document will assist architects, owners and contractors in specifying and obtaining factory-applied finishes, which will provide a good level of performance in terms of film integrity, exterior durability and general appearance over the years.
