Frequently Asked Questions

Why can I only use certain Paints?

The paint color used on exterior building products is directly exposed to the sun. Light that is absorbed by the paint color converts to heat. When too much heat is absorbed, it can alter the actual physical building material in the form of warping, bowing and deformation. The correct selection of paint color will prevent this. The use of a color that does not meet AZEK paint color recommendations can lead to warping, buckling and excess movement. The use of a non-recommended color will.

Can we use custom paint colors on Azek products?

When a custom color is desired, you must use a specialty type paint that is a Water-Based Solar Reflective Coating. These paint have been formulated with solar/heat reflective pigments that prevent heat build. These coatings are not readily available at paint retail stores but are available online through paint manufacture AquaSurTech® and can be ordered online. This is specific to the AquaSurTech product AQUA/DIY D100.

What is the Light Reflective Value of a color?

All paint colors have a light reflective value (LRV) which is the measure of light reflected or alternatively absorbed. The LRV number represents the % of light reflected by that paint color. The higher the LRV number, the more light reflected. The lower the LRV number, the more light and heat absorbed. To help understand the scale, true white has a LRV rating of 100 and Black has LRV rating of 0.
