AAMA Releases Updated Sealants Document
August 2, 2016
The American Architectural Manufacturers Association 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 reorganized to make it easier to follow in terms of material type. Materials and test methods now are grouped together in subsections," says Mark Toth, H.B. Fuller, chair of the AAMA 800 Maintenance Committee. "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.
