Growth item: Biscuits for builders
Pittsburgh-based Versatex Trimboard now offers a PVC-compatible plastic biscuit for builders who biscuit-join PVC trim components.
Versatex VP sales Rick Kapres said the building trade made clear that biscuit joining offers strength and easy handling without compromising moisture resistance.
“That’s why we’ve added these new white, #20 plastic biscuits to our comprehensive PVC trim system,” Kapres said. “They’re dimensionally stable and precision molded for easy installation.” Available from Versatex distributors nationwide in boxes of 25 or cartons of 10 boxes, the biscuits enable builders to make tight, permanent joints using standard carpentry techniques and PVC adhesives.”
Biscuit joints, according to the company, are an increasingly popular solution for aligning and securing joints in fascia and frieze applications as well as window and door trims and millwork.
