ALFATHERM OBTAINS THE AAMA CERTIFICATION FOR ITS PVC LAMINATES
Gorla Minore (VA) Italy, 17 September 2018 – Alfatherm received by Dallas Laboratories Inc., in the United States, the certification of compliance with the weathering requirements of AAMA 307-16 (American Architectural Manufactures Association) for its PVC laminates.
AAMA certification of suitability establishes minimum weathering requirements for decorative laminates intended for application to either interior or exterior surfaces. In order to obtain the compliance with the AAMA requirements, Alfatherms’ laminates were placed under observation for two years in three different US locations in Arizona, Florida and Ohio.
“At Alfatherm we are very proud of this result. It is in fact a further demonstration of the high quality of our products and of our ability to meet the most stringent performance requirements set at national and international level.”
Alfatherm is an Italian company and a European leader in the production of thermoplastic films, in particular rigid, semi-rigid and plasticized PVC foils.
The constant drive for innovation has made of Alfatherm a world leader in the surface decoration industry. The company is a reference point for the world’s leading manufacturers of decorative panels, thanks to its super-matt surfaces highly resistant to scratches and stains, and to its exclusive embossed-in-register technology which allows to produce decorated surfaces hardly distinguishable from real wood.
