Pinneberg/Germany, September 27th 2016 — VinyTop facades in wood grain and with excellent weathering resistance are available in dark colors with a silky matt surface for the first time this year.
The outer layers of the profiles are extruded from the super matt material Rotec ASA E 310/11. This development by ROMIRA improves weather resistance of PVC and ABS many times over. A thin co-extruded layer of material protects the parts against UV rays and significantly increases the service life of the panels.
The outer layers are colored with light and weather resistant ROWALID® color masterbatches from ROWA Masterbatch. This gives the facade a noble and natural character, thus an authentic wood look. In combination with the co-extruded layer of Rotec ASA E 310/11, it also further improves its stability in all weather conditions.
The underlying supporting structure is foamed with TRACEL propellant by Tramaco to achieve a low weight per unit area. This ensures a high stability and at the same time a low weight. Due to the lightweight material vinyTop facades are ideal for installation on hard to reach areas and areas where heavy facades cannot be held in place for the long term because of their stability.
The frame structure is colored by ROWASOL liquid colors, specifically designed for use in rigid PVC. The optimally dispersed colorants are evenly distributed in the material, thus allowing a uniform coloration of profiles at a very low dosage below one percent.
A joint project worth repeating: Vinylit is very pleased with the results of the close cooperation. It is planned to develop another facade system with ROWA GROUP products.
