Vinyl is impervious to corrosion when coated in veneer plaster, wet joint compounds, or when placed in contact with steel or aluminum frames and resists impacts, dents, and damage during construction. No priming is required to add paint to vinyl products due to its paint adhesion properties. Vinyl has low electrical and thermal conductivity and is considered an excellent insulator, as well as being self-extinguishing and offering better resistance to burning than many other common building materials. Additionally, vinyl has a lower cost than equivalent products manufactured from zinc or aluminum, for use when the highest levels of corrosion resistance are required.
Vinyl E-Flange Casing Bead is used to terminate stucco & stone against doors, windows and dissimilar surfaces. Casing beads should not be used in lieu of Foundation Weep Screeds at the base of the wall, as they do not meet building code requirements.
