Pactiv Introduces GreenGuard® BACKER-PRO(TM) Underlayment for Alcoa Vinyl Siding Products

New Made-to-Fit Fanfold Underlayment Makes Installing Vinyl Siding Easier and Faster

ATLANTA (Jan. 21, 2003) - Pactiv Corporation (NYSE: PTV) introduces GreenGuard® BACKER-PRO(TM) fanfold underlayment for Alcoa Home Exteriors' Grand Sierra® and Mastic® Premium QUEST³ Series vinyl siding. This new underlayment, uniquely contoured to fill the hollow spaces between the vinyl siding and the exterior wall, increases the siding's impact resistance and the wall's thermal efficiency.

GreenGuard® BACKER-PRO(TM) fanfold underlayment lays flat to provide a smooth, even surface for a straight, finished job. Once the starter strip is installed, GreenGuard® BACKER-PRO(TM) underlayment covers large areas quickly and easily with the 24 foot-long fanfolds. After GreenGuard® BACKER-PRO(TM) underlayment is installed, the siding falls neatly and quickly into place over the underlayment's contours, reducing the time typically required to align the siding.

Made from closed cell extruded polystyrene (XPS), GreenGuard® BACKER-PRO(TM) underlayment has excellent moisture resistance to help prevent warping and moisture build-up inside walls. GreenGuard® BACKER-PRO(TM) underlayment for Alcoa Grand Sierra® and Mastic® Premium QUEST³ Series is ¼" thick and is available in 45" x 24' fanfolds.

GreenGuard® BACKER-PRO(TM) underlayment is the latest addition to Pactiv's extensive line of GreenGuard® siding underlayments including insulation board in 2' x 4' and 4' x 8' sheets, and 4' x 50' fanfolds.
