Advantages of Fibrex® Material

Advantages of Fibrex® MaterialAdvantages of Fibrex® Material

Fibrex® is a revolutionary composite window frame material that was pioneered by Andersen, America’s premier window manufacturer. Used to create the high-performance windows offered by Renewal by Andersen® of South Louisiana, Fibrex® is a unique blend of reclaimed wood fiber and thermoplastic polymer. When fused together in a certain way, these materials can provide twice the strength of vinyl, as well as a host of other benefits.

The Best of Both Worlds

As a composite material made from wood scraps and vinyl, Fibrex® can create a window frame that incorporates the best features of each material. For instance, while natural wood is durable and beautiful, vinyl is energy efficient and low maintenance. As a result, a Fibrex® window can outperform both wood and vinyl windows. Specifically, it will not:

  • Expand or contract with temperature fluctuations
  • Fade over time (the color is blended during the production process to help ensure that it lasts)
  • Blister, pit, flake, peel, or corrode
  • Support the growth of mold, mildew, fungus, or other microorganisms
  • Rot or decay

Going Green

To create Fibrex®, Andersen uses a combination of wood fiber, which is mostly reclaimed from its manufacturing processes, and thermoplastic vinyl, some of which is also reclaimed. Because Fibrex® window frames never need to be painted or treated with wood preservatives, the volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions that would result from these processes are eliminated. Additionally, Fibrex® blocks thermal transfer almost 700 times better than aluminum; when used in a window frame, it creates a weathertight seal that can help reduce energy consumption. For all of these reasons, Renewal by Andersen windows are an environmentally friendly solution.
