Amerimax Building Products, Inc. Introduces Aluma-Shield with Teflon® Surface Protector

Plano, TX (Aug. 15, 2008)--Amerimax Building Products, Inc. recently introduced it's newest and toughest Alumawood(TM) Paint System to the market, Aluma-Shield with Teflon® surface protector. Amerimax worked with DuPont in developing and testing this new formulation for their patio cover products. The new paint system is more resilient than other polyester paint systems with benefits like:

o Washability of a semi-gloss finish and the decorative appeal of a matte-finish
o Surface that repels oil, dirt, dust and stains, making it easy to keep clean
o Protection from UV rays, salt, pollution and weathering for a long-lasting, beautiful new look
o Durable surface that resists chalking, fading, cracks, peels, warps and termites
o A premium coating without the premium price

Teflon® has a very successful track record in other industries and is widely recognized for its wide range of uses. Avid cooks use it for the non-stick coating surface that it provides. Fashionistas and Interior Designers like it for fabrics because it repels liquid stains. Teflon® has also been a staple of the automotive industry for several years now. The new formulation of Aluma-Shield with Teflon® surface protector has piqued the interest of many industry professionals and consumers alike, making the partnership with DuPont a very beneficial one for Amerimax.

Amerimax has parlayed this success into its home improvement and remodeling line of products by adding it to their Alumawood(TM) Shade Structures, a patio cover system that utilizes cedar-embossed, roll-formed aluminum tubes to give the look and feel of real wood without the maintenance issues commonly associated with real wood - a fact that has become increasingly important since the product is very popular in Western states, where high temperatures and dry climates can quickly erode real wood.
