    trim and interior applications. Primarily Residential.
  2. AAMA 2604 - These coatings are an excellent choice for high-traffic environments, such as
    schools, hospitals and retail stores, as well as
    flagpoles and other highly exposed
    architectural elements.
  3. AAMA 2605 - These superior performance coatings make an excellent choice for architectural
    projects that require long term cosmetic and functional protection such as curtain walls, storefronts
    and other highly visible, high-end applications.
