What standards do Interpon D products meet?
Interpon D product range meet the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) and Standards Australia.
AAMA standards are the globally recognised specification, performance requirement and test procedure for organic coatings on aluminium extrusions and panels as set out by the American Architectural Manufacturers Association. The standards assist architects, owners and contractors to specify coatings for aluminium applications that will provide and maintain a minimum level of performance.
AS3715 for ‘Metal Finishing – Thermoset powder coating for architectural applications of aluminium and aluminium alloys’ sets out the Australian standards required for pre-treatment, application and performance of powder coatings on aluminium substrates.
What is the Building Code of Australia (BCA)?
The Building Code of Australia (BCA) provides a nationally accepted and uniform set of technical requirements for all areas of building, from design to construction. Developed by the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) on behalf of the Commonwealth, State and Territory Governments, the BCA is referred to as the building regulation in all States and Territories – 2010 – these are the regulatory Australian guide lines which defines construction requirements for residential and commercial projects.
