Monroe, Ohio --Deceuninck North America has launched a glass-fibre-polyurethane composite for the double glazed window market, the firm said in a press release.
Deceuninck said it has worked with BASF to develop Rovex which includes bio-based materials and offers good structural, thermal and environmental performance.
Filip Geeraert, president and CEO of Deceuninck North America, said his firm has been using the "polyurethane technology incorporated in Rovex in the production of our Innergy thermal reinforcements for some time. The logical next step was to use Rovex technology to make the whole sash and eliminate the need for reinforcement altogether." He added Deceuninck North America plans to showcase the innovation at the , in a door sash.
The product uses Bayer polyurethane resin systems and Deceuninck North America's design and manufacturing processes, Deceuninck North America added. The firm said it is offering the whole solution for in-house manufacturing.
