Our Durion® Finish
Our fiberglass pultrusions withstand the harshest environments, so we offer a high quality finish that will perform the same. Our patented Durion acrylic is applied during the pultrusion process and creates a virtually indestructible bond with the fiberglass substrate. It’s harder and thicker than other high performance finishes. So, whether the final product will endure the harsh winters of Canada or the corrosive coastal climate of Rhode Island, it will maintain superior color retention, fade resistance and durability.
Advantages of Durion®
- Harder and thicker than other finishes
- Withstands extreme climates
- Virtually maintenance free
- Resists chalking, fading, marring or scratching
