SKOKIE, IL—AZEK, the leading brand of cellular pvc trim and mouldings, now includes among its building products a new AZEK 1 ½” Sheet and five 2x Trim products, all measuring an actual 1 ½” thick. The sheet is available in 4’ x 8’, with a true 48”+ width, and the boards are nominal sizes of 2 x 4, 2 x 6, 2 x 8, 2 x 10, and 2 x 12 in 18’ lengths. All items are designed to meet the needs of fabricators, mill shops, as well as contractors, who prefer a thicker profile.
Like all AZEK Trim items, the new AZEK 2x products have the consistent color, density and cell structure that have come to be expected from the leading brand of cellular pvc trim. These new 1 ½” Sheet and 2x Trim products offer superior workability and are highly durable, maintaining their good looks through all types of weather.
“We are constantly trying to develop smart, purposeful items for our AZEK Trim product line, and these new sheet and trim products deliver on the high quality you expect from AZEK products,” said Jason Grommon, President of CPG Building Products. “And our new 1 ½” sheet offers the industry’s best yields of up to more than one square foot versus the competition on a 4’ x 8’ sheet.”
The new AZEK 1 ½” Sheet and 2x Trim products are manufactured with a -1/32” to +1/16” thickness tolerance. The tight tolerance, along with the consistent core density and the true white core for color uniformity, make these new profiles perfect for any project.
“When designing products, we keep both the workability for our contractors and fabricators, along with top-notch value for the homeowner, top of mind,” said Grommon. “We are confident our new 1 ½” sheet, and the 2x trim products, will reduce steps and increase yield at millwork shops, which ultimately puts money back in our customer’s pockets.”
AZEK Trim offers a 25-year warranty, is easy to clean and stands the test of time against the weather, moisture and insects. It also does not require paint for protection, and can be routed, milled and fabricated to create unparalleled designs.
