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. 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.

How are the warranties issued?

Only Interpon® D Approved Applicators (such as ACT Powder Coating Services) can offer warranties on the architectural product range for architectural aluminium applications.

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 D Approved Applicator and non-Approved Applicator?

Our network of approved applicators are regularly assessed against comprehensive criteria and rigorous application guidelines. 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.

What happens if I do not use an Interpon® D Approved Applicator?

The components will not be eligible for warranty.

Project Suitability

It is important to define your project correctly to ensure the correct product is specified and the performance and warranty is able to be gained for your project.

Both project type and the environment (conditions) will impact on the exposure of the powder coat to elements such as UV, dirt and salt. For instance, marine and coastal environments are exposed to winds and sea salts, which have a long-term impact on the performance of coating systems due to erosion and weathering, and commercial projects will be exposed to greater environmental impacts, whether they be the usage of the environment or the height of the building.

To ensure products are fit for these environments Dulux recommends suitable products based on the AS3715 and AAMA testing standards. These standards provide a benchmark of product quality that are an assurance that your asset will be protected by a product fit for purpose. For complete details relating to these standards visit aamanet.org

To define projects we utilise three key sources:

1. The building classifications under the Building code of Australia (BCA)
2. Industry standards for powder coatings – Primarily AAMA and AS3715
3. Environmental condition utilising AS4312 and ISO12944 Atmospheric corrosivity zones in Australia as a guide

The following tables allow you to identify your project, to look at the appropriate products for the environment, whether it be interior or exterior, the care and maintenance required, and details on our Dulux Accredited Powder Coaters, as only Dulux Accredited Powder coaters are able to issue our Dulux Alumi Shield warranties.

Definitions:

  • Non-Habitable projects are those that are not dwelling types. Examples can be furniture, bus shelters, signage etc.
  • Residential properties are typically easy to maintain, given their height and access.
  • High-rise projects are less sheltered from neighbouring buildings, raising their exposure and reducing their ease of maintenance.
  • Monumental projects attract the most attention and have the highest standards required to uphold the reputation expected from landmark sites
