Mikron Offers SuperCapSR Vinyl Color Technology
Mikron Industries has announced the availability of a new color technology for exterior vinyl windows and doors. The new SuperCapSR color system is a patent-pending technology that creates a molecularly-fused color layer that becomes an integral part of the profile. Unlike painted vinyl, the tough acrylic color layer is highly scratch-resistant and more durable during delivery and installation.
Historically, darker colored vinyl windows have had problems with heat build-up. Heat build-up performance is important not only in hot climate regions, but in most all regions during summer direct sun situations. Born from military infrared reflective technology, the SuperCapSR exterior color technology absorbs less heat to prevent heat-related profile distortion, according to information from the company. The company backs these profiles with a 20 year warranty for dimensional performance and 10 years on color fade--meeting or exceeding applicable AAMA standards.
SuperCapSR exterior colors include dark bronze, hunter green, sand, brick red and eggshell.
"We believe this new break-through technology gives builders flexibility to 'value-engineer' house packages, and durable colors that shouldn't require job site touch-up," says Dick Morgan, vice president of sales and marketing. "SuperCapSR also offers manufacturers another way to differentiate their brand."
