AR Iron has become one of the only companies in the western US to pass the rigorous testing set forth by the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) to offer AAMA 2604 and AAMA 2605-compliant powder coatings to architects, constructors and building owners.  

AR Iron has been named to Tiger Drylac's, a prestigious manufacturer of AAMA powder coatings, list of approved AAMA 2604 and AAMA 2605 coating applicators, demonstrating its reliability and excellence in the industry. The AAMA 2604 coating offers AR Iron’s clients a five-year warranty, and the AAMA 2605 coating provides a substantial 10-year warranty. 

“After undergoing stringent quality assurance testing, we are now one of the few companies on the west coast to achieve this certification. This further solidifies our commitment to provide the highest quality of products and services to our clientele,” said Tony Sclafani, General Manager at AR Iron. “Achieving the AAMA certification is another step in the right direction to continue developing our business and becoming a leading applicator in the Southern Nevada industry.” 

The AAMA certification ensures AR Iron applies the utmost quality coatings, as it requires the powder-coated samples to undergo extensive testing, including salt spray and humidity chamber tests. These evaluations assess adhesion, gloss and overall powder coating performance, guaranteeing resilience, and longevity. 

Powder coating is a surface finishing process that involves electrostatically charging surfaces, which is suitable for both metallic and non-metallic surfaces. The object is then placed in an oven to melt and harden the powder, resulting in a durable and attractive finish. AR Iron also offers unlimited color options including topcoats, RALs, textures, and veins that are perfect for the Las Vegas environment. Powder coatings are composed of dry mixtures with four primary components: binders, pigments and dyes, fillers and additives, which collectively contribute to the coating's performance and appearance. 

The world-class powder coating company also specializes in iron and media blasting services. For more information about AR Iron and its AAMA 2604 and AAMA 2605 coatings, visit
