Around the house

During the 1990s, gutters, drainpipes and aluminium coatings had the tendency to fade and deteriorate over time as a result of too much sun exposure.


To prevent fading, researchers at Altuglas International developed Solarkote®.


With Solarkote®, a new grade of acrylic capstocks were invented. Solarkote® is, in fact, the first coating containing PMMA resins that protects against deterioration caused by UV rays.  Almost all of the colours are vinyl substrates (including even the darkest shades).


With a wider selection of more original and creative colours and improved durability, plastic fences almost become decorative objects.
