Versatex expands Max dimensions
Versatex Max extruded cellular PVC sheets rolled out 2x8, 2x10 and 2x12 board versions of its 1.5-in. thick product.
In announcing the 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 1½-in. PVC sheet we rolled out this spring.”
The idea, according to the company, is to bring the convenience of dimensional lumber to producers of laminated pergola beams, custom mouldings, corbels, spindles and other fabricated items.
The Max product initially launched in 48-in.-wide sheets. “For a lot of applications, the same thickness in a 8-in., 10-in. and 12-in. width is easier to handle,” Pace said. “Now fabricators will be able to save lamination steps and get the job done faster.”
Versatex Max Trimboard is manufactured by Wolfpac Technologies of Pittsburgh.
