The new 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 bold new colors have also been added to the SolarDefense portfolio, rounding out the offering with 10 rich, designer-inspired hues in dark blue, brown, red and gray shades.
“The launch of Ply Gem SolarDefense is prime example of our continued commitment to innovation,” said Delaina Lee, director, customer engagement, Ply Gem Siding Group. “We already offer the industry’s only No Fade, No Distortion Promise, and we continue to build on the strength of that promise through constant research and development efforts. With SolarDefense, professional home remodeling contractors can stay well ahead of the siding technology life cycle and provide homeowners with low-maintenance, beautiful options on the exterior of their homes for decades.”
