FAQ

What standards does Metaplex® warranty meet?

Interpon products required for Metaplex warranties 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’. It 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 a 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 guidelines which defines construction requirements for residential and commercial projects.

How are the warranties issued?

Only Interpon Approved Applicators are eligible to offer Metaplex Standard and Metaplex Commerical warranties.

A project certificate outlining the project and product details will be issued to the Approved Applicator upon completion of work.
