AAMA Releases Updated Sealants Document

August 1st, 2016 by Editor

The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) recently released an updated document describing the test procedures and specifications required for sealants. The AAMA 800 document, Voluntary Specifications and Test Methods for Sealants, was last updated in 2010.

The AAMA 800 contains a group of documents utilized in the construction and installation of fenestration products. Beginning with the 2016 publication, these documents remain connected, but have been separated as sub-publications.

“This document was re-organized to make it easier to follow in terms of material type,” says Mark Toth of H.B. Fuller, chair of the AAMA 800 Maintenance Committee. “Materials and test methods now are grouped together in subsections. This latest version more easily facilitates use by sealant manufacturers and fenestration fabricators. This update will also ease the task of future updates.”

AAMA 800-16, as well as other AAMA documents, may be purchased from AAMA’s online store.
