With an easy-to-handle nominalnominal 2x8”, 2x10” and 2x12” boards version of the 1 1/2”-thick VERSATEX MAX™ extruded cellular PVC sheet, VERSATEX Trimboard brings the convenience of dimensional lumber to producers of laminated pergola beams, custom mouldings, corbels, spindles and other fabricated items.
In announcing today’s product launch, VERSATEX president John Pace called the new 2x Trimboard “a rapid response to feedback from the people in the field who have been working with the extra-thick 1 1/2” PVC sheet we rolled out this spring.”
While builders, millwork shops and OEMs have given the 48-inch-wide sheet high marks for stability and workability, Mr. Pace said, “for a lot of applications, the same thickness in a 8-inch, 10-inch and 12inch width is easier to handle. Now fabricators will be able to save lamination steps and get the job done faster.”
VERSATEX MAX 2x Trim is fully 1/4” thicker than competing products, he added, “and it gives you the same tight cell structure, density, core consistency and dimensional tolerances you expect in everything from VERSATEX.” He said the company’s R&D team also took into account the needs of distributors across the U.S.A. who stock VERSATEX two-by products. Initially, VERSATEX MAX Trimboards will be sold in 18-foot lengths, smooth finish only.
