MONROE, OHIO (Sept. 8, 1 p.m. ET) — A U.S. maker of systems and composites for the building industry has introduced a thermal reinforcement product made in collaboration with Bayer MaterialScience.
Deceuninck North America's Innergy rigid thermal reinforcements brought together Bayer's “expertise in custom polyurethane resin system development” and Deceuninck's “long experience in design and manufacturing,” Monroe-based Deceuninck said in a Sept. news release.
The window frame product will be presented to the marketplace at the GlassBuild America 2011 conference, held Sept 12-14 in Atlanta.
Developed as a better-performing alternative to aluminum reinforcements for PVC windows and door profiles, Innergy also contains 20 percent bio-based resins, Deceuninck said.
The two companies worked closely to develop a custom polyurethane composite system and production process that would enable Innergy to deliver what Deceuninch said was a “unique set” of performance characteristics.
