SKOKIE, IL—AZEK, a CPG Building Products brand with more than 30 years of manufacturing experience bringing the industry breakthrough products in trim, deck, rail and paver categories, is set to launch its newest product line, advanced reinforced polymer composite siding, at the 2016 International Builders’ Show (IBS). Set to revolutionize the industry, AZEK Siding will first be unveiled at IBS from January 19 – January 21, 2016 in Las Vegas, NV.
Made from a state-of-the-art, proprietary formula, new AZEK Siding is lighter and stronger than the competition. Constructed with reinforced polymer composite, this patent-pending design offers best-in-class installation, integrated water management, superior aesthetics and durability.
“This premium performance and durable siding is unlike anything else on the market,” said CPG Building Products President, Jason Grommon. “AZEK Siding weighs up to 40 percent less than most fiber cement siding. At just over six pounds per board, this makes it easy for installers to handle and transport. AZEK Siding also allows contractors to complete faster and simpler installs – even with a one-man crew. With fewer callbacks for installers, and more durable siding with less long-term maintenance costs for homeowners, it is a win-win for everyone.”
AZEK’s high performance siding is an ultralight 12-foot long board designed to offer hands-free mobility when fastening and does not need additional installers or clips, special tools or blades. Gravity Lock Technology™ increases the speed of the installation and ensures that each piece is locked in place. Three pre-finished colors are available along with a primed option that can be customized onsite. All finished colors are chemically bonded to planks for enhanced performance that will look rich for years.
“This product is truly unmatched in the category,” said CPG International CMO, Julia Fitzgerald. “The tougher siding will make homeowners happy, giving them peace of mind knowing that their siding will deliver years of unmatched beauty and performance. And our bundled warranty covers both the product and the finish.”
The highly engineered, high performance AZEK Siding offers a natural matte finish that appears to be rough-cut cedar, but delivers superior durability. Not only does the new siding offer exceptional aesthetics, but the exclusive premium-grade composition reduces the need for maintenance, painting and sealing; is suitable for ground contact; is more than twice as impact resistant as fiber cement siding; and resists damage from insects, moisture, stains and harsh weather.

AZEK Siding was launched regionally in late 2015 with continued expansion in 2016. For additional information about AZEK Siding, visit www.AZEK.com/products/siding.
