AAMA Releases Test Procedure and Quality Assurance Guide for Thermal Barriers

AAMA 505-09, a test procedure, and QAG-1-09, a quality assurance processing and monitoring guide, have been released by the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA).

AAMA 505-09, Dry Shrinkage and Composite Performance Thermal Cycling Test Procedure outlines a laboratory method to measure the amount of dry shrinkage and retained composite longitudinal shear resistance of extrusions incorporating a thermal barrier after thermal cycling. The process of thermal cycling described in AAMA 505-09 is referred to as the “differential” method and is to be used for product qualification of all types of thermal barriers.

AAMA QAG-1-09, Quality Assurance Processing & Monitoring Guide for Poured and Debridged Polyurethane Thermal Barriers is a quality assurance checklist for the in-plant processing of poured and debridged thermal barriers. AAMA QAG-1-09 includes information related to equipment checks, chemical storage and handling, process control, debridging and fabrication.
