Building and construction market

By using the Solarkote® family of capstocks,  the exterior of the home can be designed with rich vibrant finishes that provide long-lasting beauty and durability for even the most demanding climates.

Innovative capstocks for the building and construction market

As consumers move away from high maintenance exterior products, the Solarkote® family of capstocks offers market leading durability to manufacturers of ultra-low maintenance building materials.


The enduring nature of PMMA polymer chain is the foundation that Solarkote® acrylic capstocks were built on, giving product designers confidence in performance no matter what color, finish or gloss level is required.  The market leading innovation and performance captured within Solarkote® products gives ultimate flexibility to develop the best products with a broad selection of substrate materials.


Solarkote® allows you to create the ultimate home environment.  Starting in the yard, elegant black fencing creates lasting curb appeal.  Dark rich decking and railing provide a worry free area to relax without the need for constant upkeep and refinishing.  Low-gloss siding stands alone or accompanies stone facades to provide a beautiful soft finish that stays true to color no matter the climate.  Expressive window and trim options make the home standout in any setting.
