Penn Color has long been recognized as an industry leader in the siding and vertical cladding market.
Siding has a solid place in the residential housing market as an aesthetically pleasing and cost-effective solution to protect the house from the elements. Penn Color has been at the technological forefront to help siding producers keep – and grow – their market share. We push the envelope when it comes to maximum pigment loadings to reduce the cost to color, and have a unique capability to control color tolerances to minute levels, often times less than 0.5 DE from lot to lot.
We understand capstock polymers, and have the expertise in pigment and additive selection to maximize color retention while minimizing cost. Through our Omni-Max® Reflections, “cool color” technology, we are also helping to expand the introduction of new, darker colors to the market. Achieve the desired color spaces, while minimizing heat build-up.
Penn Color currently offers the industry leading variegated or ‘streaker’ product that creates a natural looking woodgrain effect, reducing the scrap and returns that plague other technologies in the market. This technology is not limited to extruded profiles. The same technology can be adapted to make cedar shakes and other injection molded components look equally as authentic.
We have a complete array of accelerated and outdoor weathering testing at your disposal, and a technical team that’s fully dedicated to the building products industry.
