There are a variety of coatings currently available for aluminum architectural panels. Understanding the benefits of what each one offers, including the durability and how that finish impacts the environment, to help course takers make an informed decision when specifying these panels. To that end, understanding paint finish warranties and promised performance criteria are essential. This course examines all of these paint finishes to ensure peak performance and customer satisfaction are met.
