Building and Construction

It started with vinyl siding, and the march of plastics into the construction industry hasn’t stopped.  Decking, railing, stair treads, gutters, vents, even water supply pipes… the list of major plastic components in the modern home is extraordinary, and made possible in large part thanks to advances in compounding.  Items like vinyl siding not only need consistent color, they need to withstand extreme weather conditions and constant UV exposure.  Deck materials often need a combination of additives such as algaecides/biocides and thermal stabilizers to reduce heat retention.
