The Perfect Window Material
Ultrex, a patented fiberglass that just might be the perfect window material. Ultrex is tough. It outlasts vinyl, roll form aluminum, and other fiberglass composites. It won't corrode, it's low maintenance and it's beautiful. Marvin pioneered this revolutionary material and have nearly 20 years of experience working with it. Marvin used this time to perfect their manufacturing processes, making Ultrex the best fiberglass window you can buy.
Marvin makes Ultrex with a special process called pultrusion. Thin strong cables of glass are saturated with special resin compounds then pulled through a heated die to form the final window components. Our patented pultrusion process creates a material so strong that we have to cut it with diamond tip blades. Ultrex is eight times stronger than vinyl and as strong as steel. Because it's so strong we can build our windows with a thinner frame profile. That gives you larger glass area for better views.
They can withstand temperatures from 40 below - 350 above with virtually no expansion or contraction.
Ultrex meets all the requirements of AMA 623 – 10. This means that Ultrex has been tested with acid, baked in a hot oven, and placed in extremely cold temperatures, with no corrosion blistering or peeling. The Ultrex finish is also the first and only window material on the verified components list of AMA 624 - 10 and 625 – 10.
Vinyl and other materials will expand and contract. Over time that can
cause your windows to fail, but Ultrex is as thermally stable as the glass itself. Ultrex it expands 833 percent less than vinyl and 300% less than wood vinyl composites.
Ultrex Acrylic Cap Finish
Our acrylic cap finish is actually bonded to the fiberglass. It's up to three times thicker than the competition's thin painted finish and resists fading, scratching, and chalking.
We're putting on a thick film of acrylic material. We extrude it straight on to the product. It doesn't have any of the typical problems associated with paint where we have thin spots or runs, or drips or orange peel. It's a real consistent finish. When we're manufacturing the product, we don't have to worry about it getting nicked up, or when an installer is putting a window in, it can take a little bit more abuse than a typical painted finish. – Thomas Gohdes, Director of Engineering
We're so confident in the performance of Ultrex windows that we offer them in dark colors. Ultrex resists the sun's ultraviolet rays five times better than vinyl. It stands up to every climate; East Coast, West Coast, or anywhere in between. Ultrex can take whatever the weather dishes out - in sun, rain or salt air.
