ENDURING BEAUTY BEGINS WITH A STRONG FINISH

MORE THAN A SUPERIOR PAINT, IT’S A SUPERIOR PROCESS.
Multiple coats of color are backed into the boards, delivering superior finish adhesion, and color retention and permitting year-round installation.
- Preconditioning – The baked on process heats and preconditions the boards for a stronger bond with the coating.
- Edge Coating – Edges are coated and sealed.
- Coating – Boards are coated for complete coverage of deeply embossed grain textures.
- Curing – Repeating the heating process before and after coating promotes optimal and consistent curing.
- Coating – Boards are coated again to ensure consistent coverage of the entire surface.
- Baked-On Board – Final heating application provides a baked-on finish for maximum consistency and performance.
SUPERIOR FADE RESISTANCE
When considering the cost of siding, think about the long-term performance. James Hardie puts their ColorPlus Technology finish head-to-head against siding painted with commercially available exterior grade paint. They exposed these boards to the same 3,000 hours of UV light to replicate the effects of sunlight over six years.
