10000 Series – AAMA 2604 Specification
The TCI 10000 Series Superior Exterior Performance Polyester Systems are formulated to meet the requirements of the AAMA 2604 specification. Products in this series have a 60 degree gloss range of 30-90% and are available in a wide selection of colors. Proper chrome or non-chrome pretreatment is critical for product performance. A chrome conversion coating must be applied at 30 mg/ft2 minimum. The non-chrome coating must be applied per supplier’s specification. A TCI technical representative must audit each application system to insure products will meet the 2604 specification.
Applications may include windows and doors, playground equipment, cladding components, park furniture, fences and railings, light fixtures and poles, stadium seating, and sports equipment.
The weathering requirements of this specification require super durable polyesters and selected high performance pigments. Color selection is more limited due to the weathering limitations of high chroma pigments. Products are available in a variety of surface appearances. There is a wide latitude in gloss and cure schedule. Aluminum metallics are available with a clear topcoat required for appearance stability. Pearlescents can be used without a clear topcoat, but for improved appearance stability a clear topcoat is recommended.
