XtremeTrim® - Aluminum does not rust, however it does corrode. XtremeTrim® has a protective coating to cover the bare aluminum. When making cuts on XtremeTrim® recoating will be required at ends, surface scratches or when performing form cuts. Failure to do this voids your warranty. For answers to your technical questions on recoating consult your local paint manufacturer before installation. Please refer to XtremeTrim® painting guide.
Responsibility remains with the architect or engineer, contractor and owner for the design, application and proper installation of each Tamlyn product. Specifier and user shall determine the suitability of products for specific application and assume all responsibilities in connection there within.
PVC Trim - The PVC TAMLYN buys is an industry-standard, rigid, durable, chemically resistant product designed for outdoor weatherability. While the PVC is paintable, we cannot know what may be added to paints, primers etc. that could affect the PVC. Installers must consult with the paint manufacturer recommendations on priming and painting PVC. Where parts are designed to work together, TAMLYN vinyl products are not warranted if installed in conjunction with other non-Tamlyn vinyl products.
TAMLYN PVC Trim may be painted to achieve a custom color. Use a light color, 100% acrylic latex paint with a light reflective value (LRV) of 55 or higher (Flat Black=0, pure white=100). Painting PVC trim with dark colors may cause the product to warp. TAMLYN does not recommend painting our PVC products with dark colors. If a dark color (LRV value of 50 or lower/darker) paint is used, excess solar heat may be absorbed, subjecting the PVC to warping and distortion due to extremes of thermal expansion and contraction. This reaction is even more evident when these parts are exposed to direct sunlight in hot climates. Paint adhesion loss, blistering and peeling may also result.
TAMLYN will not be responsible for repair or replacement of any resulting damage due to distortion, warping, buckling, shrinkage, paint blistering, or peeling of paint on the PVC products, or repair or replacement of related siding, soffit, or trim products if dark colors were used. Follow the paint manufacturer’s recommendations to apply. Make sure TAMLYN PVC Trim is clean and dry before painting.
Please follow siding manufacturers best practice application when installing any Tamlyn accessory. XtremeTrim® profiles do not form a moisture management system, the architect and builder are responsible for designing and installing a code compliant building envelope. XtremeTrim® products are not part of an Exterior Insulation Finishing System (EIFS) and are not designed or intended to be used in an EIFS or similar system.
Note flammability: PVC products will not support or spread flames. They are self-extinguishing as soon as the flame source is removed.
