QUALICOAT defines comprehensive quality requirements for coatings on aluminum and aluminum alloys for architectural applications. It has a network of international companies licensed to monitor compliance all around the world. The QUALICOAT quality label is awarded to coating solutions manufacturers as well as coating companies. Customers can thus be sure that they are buying a high-quality product with long-term value retention.
Internationally defined quality standards for industrial surface finishing powder coatings are an important tool in ensuring product selection reliability in the “architecture” value chain, especially for projects that involve more than one country. Our quality assurance is carried out by multiple quality associations in accordance with international guidelines, and our products have been awarded the requisite certificates and/or seals. You can find an overview of all certificates here.
TIGER powder coatings, which are used in building projects and the facade industry, meet the strict requirements of the following quality organizations:
- GSB INTERNATIONAL
The international quality association GSB awards graded quality seals to coaters, coating materials and pretreatment chemicals. Its strict guidelines, which are monitored via regular inspections, apply to the surface finishing of components made from aluminum and aluminum alloys and provide architects, construction companies and clients with the guarantee that their coated materials are safe and of the highest quality.
The American Architectural Manufacturers Association sets quality standards for door, window and facade industry suppliers, including manufacturers of powder coatings. High-performance coating solutions that have been approved according to AAMA standards help provide customers in the architectural sector with a sense of security in selecting their product.
TIGER powder coatings open up a wealth of creative new possibilities in surface finishing for steel, aluminum, MDF, galvanized materials, glass, ceramics, and heat-resistant and glass-fiber reinforced plastics. While protection from corrosion and resistance to UV light and weather exposure are less important for indoor applications, these requirements are the gold standard for outdoor coatings that are fully exposed to the elements.
Weather-resistant and UV-protective coatings certified by GSB, QUALICOAT or AAMA are used to protect buildings, facades and window frames from rapid aging and premature chalking. They protect surfaces from the sun, wind and weather and keep colors and effects bright and shiny for many years to come – all over the world and with just one coat.
Powder coatings classed as durable meet the quality requirements of GSB International and QUALICOAT. They are optimized for one year of South Florida weather exposure and are highly resistant to weather, UV light and corrosion.
- Super Durable
Facade-quality super durable powder coatings are designed for three years of South Florida weather exposure and meet the strict quality regulations of GSB International and/or QUALICOAT. The long-lasting product concept, which guarantees high abrasion resistance and maximum weather, UV and corrosion stability, is designed to preserve the value of properties over the long term.
- Hyper Durable
Hyper durable powder coatings for application on facades and window frames meet the requirements of AAMA 2605 and offer even better UV protection and weather resistance properties than super durable products. After 10 years of weather exposure in South Florida, the residual gloss of these powder coatings is still ≥ 50 percent of the original gloss.
TIGER powder coatings are manufactured in Austria. Our production plant is certified in accordance with the automotive standards IATF 16949 and ISO 9001. Our products meet the strict requirements of guideline no. 10 of the German Paint and Printing Ink Association (Verband der deutschen Lack- und Druckfarbenindustrie or VdL) and guarantee excellent batch and color consistency.
