ABET LAMINATI Exterior Panels - MEG (Material Exterior Grade)

I spent the day at Neocon Chicago, 06.10.08. Neocon is the largest trade show in the United States and of course I went to find out firsthand information on new and innovative Green products and building materials. I would like to share my favorites with you.

Exterior panels created by ABET, Inc. (www.abetlaminati,com). They are MEG (Material Exterior Grade) which is a high pressure laminate made of layers of kraft paper impregnated with phenolic resin and bonded by heat and pressure. The core and exterior surface is all one piece. MEG can be used alone in the design of building exteriors or in conjunction with other building products.

The advantages of MEG are endless and tremendous at the same time.
- Weather-proof and color-fast
- Graffitti resistant
- Fire resistant
- Impact resistant
- Doesn't corrode and is not corrosive
- Will not delaminate
- Splinter-proof
- Easy to work with and can be cut in the field
- East to clean
- Termite-proof
- Anti-static
- Environmentally-friendly

Amazing technology which has been used for years in Europe in sustainable residential and commercial projects. Now is the time to use this product in the US and I want to use it in a sustainable construction project.

MEG offers a 20 year panel integrity and 10 year color-fast warranty. Dozens of standard solid colors and woodgrain patterns. Digital capability which involves a 4-color impression process on the on the 51 by 120 laminate panels, can receive virtually any image, pattern or logo with a high resolution result. Now you can cover an entire building with a company's logo, a school's official colors or your favorite pattern. MEG is t
he solution to building facades, superior performance and an extremely unique look.

Siding products Stone, Brick, and Rock - Genstone Products

GenStone simulated products are ideal for both new construction and refinishing projects.

Genstone Products

With GenStone, you will not only save money on materials, but you will also save on the cost of labor.

Key Features Include:

* Lightweight - Our simulated stacked stone, rock, and brick products weigh as little as one pound per square foot, eliminating the need for lift equipment or extra labor.

* Durable - Our products are manufactured of high-impact resistant structural polyurethane. This is the same material used in ocean aquariums and theme parks. GenStone is manufactured to endure the harshest of elements.

* Ease of Installation - One or two people using basic hand or power tools may easily apply GenStone products with screws and adhesives. Our products are easily field cut using standard woodworking tools.

* Cost Effective - The installation time and cost for our products are substantially less than conventional masonry, increasing your total savings on the project. Additionally, application requires labor with general carpentry skills.

* Authentic Look - Our simulated product molds are cast from actual stone so every detail of the stone's texture is accurately fingerprinted and transferred to our products.

* Versatility - Our products may be applied over exterior walls, commercial exterior applications, window trims, foundation skirts, full or partial home siding, porch pillars and deck siding. Your limits are determined by your imagination!

* Additional Insulation Value- GenStone products increase the R-value to homes and commercial structures, as well as meeting building code requirements.
