To complement the industry-accepted standard gloss finish of more than 35 standard colors, ATAS International now stocks six matte colors. The new low-gloss finish offers a more subdued aesthetic, like that of natural metals. Matte Black has been a popular color choice for many building components recently, and that color leads the new matte palette, which also includes Almond, Anchor Grey, Ash Grey, Char Brown and Thunder Grey. The matte colors are stocked in .032 and .040 aluminum and 24-gauge steel; other gauges are available upon request. The matte finish is achieved using a 70 percent PVDF coating, which resists fading, chalking and abrasion, as well as meets the requirements of AAMA 2605-13 and AAMA 620-02.
