AAMA 2605 Powder Coat Finishes

Gordon AAMA 2605 Powder Coat Finishes are hard-surface, super-durable polyester powder coat finishes that provide high impact, chemical, and U/V resistance. Its inherent mechanical properties meet or exceed those of commonly accepted 70% PVDF finishes, yet are available without the high cost of application and the negative environmental impact of VOC's. Gordon AAMA 2605 Powder Coat Finishes perform beautifully in exterior "high abuse" environments, such as airports, hospitals, and malls where column covers and wall panels are required. With Gordon AAMA 2605 Powder Coat Finishes, an extended warranty up to 20 years is available.

Footnote:

1Color ranges can be limited by high chromaticity which could facilitate the need for a clear top coat.
2PCI smoothness is directed by a set of 10 standard panels that vary in smoothness; 1 being the least smooth and 10 which represents nearly perfect smoothness.

3Pretreatment chemicals for PVDF coatings typically contains either trivalent or hexavalent chrome. Chrome is a heavy metal and extremely hazardous. Gordon powder coatings are applied over chrome-free pretreated substrates and exhibit excellent performance.

4Pencil Hardness Scale:

5Taber Wear Index – Indicates rate of wear, and is calculated by measuring the loss of weight (in milligrams) per thousand cycles of abrasion. The lower the wear index, the better the abrasion resistance.

Environmental Policy

Our in-house finishing facility uses only water-soluble materials in our pre-treatment process. All overflow from this process is approved for introduction into our city water treatment plant without adverse impact to the environment. Gordon powder coat finishes are EPA compliant and contribute to the U.S. Green Building initiative.

Gordon’s environmental commitment is affirmed within our core Values, Beliefs, and Principles. Waste reduction and recycling are key elements of our business culture and are embraced by all Gordon team members.
