What standards do Steelplex™ warranties meet?
Interpon products required for Steelplex™ 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 Steelplex™ Ruby, Diamond 5 and Diamond 10 warranties.
A project certificate outlining the project and product details will be issued to the Approved Applicator upon completion of work.
What is the difference between an Interpon Approved Applicator and non-Approved Applicator?
Our network of approved applicators is regularly assessed against comprehensive criteria and rigorous application guidelines. Applicators are quality controlled to best in class standards to ensure their pre-treatment and application procedures meet these strict guidelines.
These standards are designed to ensure the application process is adhered to in accordance with the requirements of both AkzoNobel and global industry standards, ensuring the highest level of customer satisfaction possible.
