SolarDefense Reflective Technology protects vinyl siding from harmful UV rays.
Underscoring its commitment to innovation, Ply Gem has introduced enhanced SolarDefense Reflective Technology used to boost siding performance. Available exclusively on select vinyl siding lines from Mastic by Ply Gem, SolarDefense provides protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays, while increasing curb appeal. This vinyl protection technology is an advancement to the existing patent-pending formulation that shields dark vinyl siding colors from the sun with light-reflecting properties and a heat-resistant base layer. SolarDefense is backed by a No Fade, No Distortion Promise and accompanying limited lifetime warranty. With SolarDefense, remodelers can win in their markets by providing building owners vinyl siding technology and colors backed by quality warranties.
The siding technology utilizes a proprietary formula with three protective layers. The top layer is designed to resist color fading and oxidation, while allowing specific two-way light transmission. The second layer is designed to aid in reflecting and scattering specific light rays to keep the siding cooler when exposed to the sun. An improved core layer has been reformulated to withstand higher temperatures, helping safeguard against thermal distortion. Coinciding with the redesigned technology, five new colors have also been added to the SolarDefense portfolio, rounding out the offering with 10 hues in dark blue, brown, red and gray shades.
SolarDefense and other Mastic vinyl siding is available through a network of distributors. For more information and to find a distribution location in your area, visit online or call 888-9PLYGEM.
