The Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA) has released an updated specification, describing test procedures and requirements for architectural quality aluminum oxide coatings applied to aluminum extrusions and panels for architectural products.  AAMA 611, Voluntary Specification for Anodized Architectural Aluminum, an FGIA document, is now available for purchase.  This document, which covers anodized finishes produced in bath or continuous coil, was last updated in 2014.

         This guideline will permit the architect, owner, and contractor to specify and obtain anodized aluminum finishes which will provide, with periodic maintenance, a superior level of performance in terms of film integrity, exterior weatherability, and general appearance for many years.
