The flat flange Vinyl Casing Bead is more appropriate for use with magnetic hammers at the cost of a lower total level of embedment.
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.
Vinyl is impervious to corrosion when coated in wet joint compounds, veneer plaster, or when placed in contact with steel or aluminum frames and resists dents, impacts, 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 aluminum or zinc, for use when the highest levels of corrosion resistance are required.
