In order to make sure that uPVC windows remain stable and robust even under harsh environmental conditions, aluplast developed a special uPVC compound called Tropical Mix. This “tropical” formulation and the profiles have been tested and certified by AAMA (American Architectural Manufacturers Association).
AAMA tests the profiles at accredited laboratories under natural weathering conditions. The profiles are tested in three different weathering stations in Ohio, Florida and Arizona for two years where they have to prove their stability against UV light, wind load and humidity.
In artificial and natural weathering tests, aluplast proved the profiles’ outstanding durability, weather resistance, and quality, and was finally awarded with the AAMA certification. All test, for example the Charpy impact test, were passed with ease and without any restrictions, even after two years of weathering.
Environmentally friendly calcium-zinc (CaZn) stabilizers ensure that you will enjoy your eco-friendly, high-quality aluplast window system for many years to come. aluplast has excellent verified references in the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Australia regarding the successful use of our tropical formulation.
Today we are proud to say that we can supply customers worldwide with an extended tropical profile portfolio and that we are able to react flexibly to the different market requirements. Stay ahead of the times with innovative technologies developed by aluplast.
