SuperCapSR™ Exterior Color Technology

Born from military infrared reflective technology, Quanex Building Products’ SuperCapSR™ Exterior Color Technology absorbs less heat to help prevent heat-related profile distortion. It is a patented, co-extruded colorant system, creating a molecularly fused color layer that becomes an integral part of the profile.

Unlike painted vinyl, the tough acrylic color layer is 12 times more scratch-resistant and durable to withstand delivery and installation handling. SuperCapSR is field weather-tested in Florida, Arizona and Kentucky, and meets AAMA 614 color-hold standards and AAMA 615 durability standards.

SuperCapSR is available on a number of Quanex window and door systems. Contact us to learn more about incorporating SuperCapSR into your fenestration system.
