Exterior Cladding: Durability Explained

Apr 28, 2017

Intense storms, heatwaves, and unpredictable conditions mean that outdoor structures need to be able to stand up to the elements.

Exterior cladding spends its life exposed to stresses from these elements and is therefore required to be as durable as possible.

That’s where cladding solutions made of polyurethane material come in. They are  low-maintenance and can be used in both domestic and commercial spaces, inland or on the coast.

The beauty of composite exterior wall cladding is that it looks just like wood. So how can it be so resistant to the elements?

Taking a look at Nova Stone will help to explain why.

Polyurethane cladding: the manufacturing process

The Nova Stone Clad product is manufactured using a patented process involving a coating that is permanently melted to a highly-compressed material core and then sealed. This results in a finished product that blends the beauty of wood with the resistance of high quality resins.

All Nova Stone Clad products have been subjected to extreme endurance tests. Swell tests and paint flaking tests performed in climate simulation chambers prove that they can withstand extremes of temperatures in excess.

No matter where you live, Nova Stone outlast whatever the wind, rain and temperatures can throw at it.
