From the hot and dry Arizona desert to Florida’s heat and humidity to the temperature extremes in the Midwest and coastal areas, windows and patio doors made with Quanex’s proprietary MikronBlend® Vinyl are field proven to stand the test of time. This unique formulation can surpass strict industry measures for colorfastness and UV degradation, and it’s why you can depend on all Mikron vinyl profiles to deliver the highest levels of performance that your customers demand.
Windows featuring MikronBlend Vinyl won’t chalk or appreciably fade, even after years of weather and sun exposure. Industry standards prescribe ASTM test procedures that verify MikronBlend’s Delta-E performance—all backed by our industry-leading warranty.
