IFS architectural powder coatings are high performance, high quality, factory applied, durable coatings designed specifically with architectural applications in mind. Suitable for use on aluminum and steel for both interior and exterior applications, the IFS architectural range offers excellent durability, good chemical resistance and mechanical performance and is a true sustainable alternative to liquid PVDF and anodized finishes. What's more IFS Coatings' architectural range comes with Environmental Product Declarations that contribute towards LEED credits.
The IFS architectural product range is comprised of first class, high performance architectural grade powders that are designed to meet and exceed the performance requirements of AAMA 2605, 2604 and 2603. This means our high performance exterior grade powders offer excellent weatherability, including color and gloss retention, salt spray and humidity resistance. They are also designed to stand up to the tough chemical and mechanical tests outlined in the AAMA specs.
Product performance is essential – protecting the substrate is simply essential. Making sure it looks great and lives up to your design expectations is also important. IFS architectural powder are available in thousands of colors, gloss levels and effects, including metallics, textures and more.
Just like with liquid PVDF finishes, IFS high performance powder coatings come with a limited warranty, when they are applied to architectural grade aluminum by a certified applicator. Like most coating warranties, the powder’s performance is linked to the test/pass requirements of the relevant AAMA specification. The parameters of the limited warranty is in turn linked to that performance level.
Using a certified applicator is really important. To give our powders a 20 year limited warranty, we have to be confident that the applicator knows what they are doing and can manage their pretreatment and application to the high AAMA standards. Our certified applicators have been thoroughly tested – including pretreatment, line and oven audits, as well as coated samples being put through the relevant AAMA tests. There are certified applicators all over the USA and beyond. To find a certified applicator near you or your project, just give us a call or contact us with your question.
