Impervious to Temperature Change
Ultrex resists such things like thermal expansion and contraction to provide the most comprehensive window and door product available today. While vinyl can distort in extreme heat or even streak and crack, Ultrex fiberglass offers the highest level of thermal performance. They expand less than vinyl and any wood and vinyl composites. Containing 0% vinyl, the pultruded fiberglass that makes up Marvin’s innovative Ultrex can withstand temperature from 40 below to 285 degree above. Because of its extremely low thermal expansion rate, your Infinity from Marvin windows will be stable and weathertight, dramatically reducing the risk of seal failures and air leakage into your home.
Amazing Durability and Longevity
The low expansion of Ultrex means less sticking, swelling, and warping. It resists discoloration, warping, rotting, corrosion, denting, rust and doesn’t require sanding, scraping, or painting. Marvin’s Ultrex fiberglass also meets requirement 623-10 of American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA), an association that voluntarily publishes specifications for organic coatings on fiber-reinforced thermoset profiles. Qualifying for AAMA 623-10 requirement means that Ultrex is a window material with extremely high durability. It does not suffer corrosion, blistering, or peeling even when exposed to acid, baked in a hot oven, and placed in extremely cold temperature!
Energy Efficient Window Solutions
Considering that Americans are spending more than $22 billion and using more than 183 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity to cool their homes with air conditioning per year, putting a hold on the rising energy expenditure through wise window investment is an attractive solution for every homeowner. Ultrex fiberglass windows offer just that. While known for its unmatched durability, strength, and longevity, Ultrex actually requires 39% less energy to produce than vinyl, 80% less for aluminum. Ultrex blocks up to 95% of the sun’s damaging UV and resists UV degradation 5 times better than any window product you find on the market.
