Monroe, Ohio -- A US 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," Deceuninck of Monroe, Ohio said in a 6 Sept announcement.
The window frame product will be presented to the marketplace at the GlassBuild America 2011 conference, held 12-14 Sept 2011.
Developed as a better-performing alternative to aluminium 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.
Deceuninck North America will exhibit during GlassBuild America 2011, which will be held at the Georgia World Congress Centre in Atlanta.
