Material Spotlight: Fibrex® Manufacturing Process

Looking for the best window frame can be challenging, especially with all the options out there. Fortunately, Renewal by Andersen® of New Jersey offers a game-changing material, which can surpass traditional wood and vinyl windows.

 

In today’s post, learn about what makes our Fibrex® windows exceptional and how they are manufactured.

 

Composition

 

Our Fibrex window frames are composed of 40% reclaimed wood, which came from the various byproducts that the Andersen Corporation manufactures yearly. These wooden scraps are the bits and pieces from the production of wood windows that are often too small or irregularly shaped to be made into any other part. We take pride in our initiative to help minimize construction waste that typically would go straight to the landfill.

 

Apart from reclaimed wood, Fibrex is made up of 60% proprietary polymer.

 

Manufacturing Process

 

The thermoplastic material is heated up to a specific temperature, while the reclaimed wood fiber is dehydrated. These two materials are mixed together to form our durable Fibrex frame material for our casement windows

 

Characteristics

 

What makes Fibrex unique? This window frame combines the strength of wood and the low maintenance nature of vinyl. It’s also twice as durable as vinyl and highly resistant to blistering, flaking and rot.

 

Moreover, you won’t ever have to worry about repainting since Fibrex comes with a fade-resistant coating. You may also choose from the diversity of colors that can match your home’s overall theme.
