James Hardie ColorPlus Technology
For the ultimate in performance with HardieZone® products, add ColorPlus® Technology. This proprietary process involves applying consistent, multiple coats of a paint that was created especially for fiber cement siding. The end result is a beautiful consistent finish that lasts up to two time’s longer than other finishes. A baked-on coating offers maximum durability and resistance to prolonged exposure to freezing climate and moisture contact.
What Makes ColorPlus By James Hardie’s Process The Best ?
James Hardie’s siding products with ColorPlus technology provide a superior alternative to vinyl siding, aluminum siding and stucco. The HardiePlank scientists then combine the highest quality raw materials, proprietary manufacturing process and equipment, revolutionary paint technology and innovative color process that gives homeowners a superior siding solution for their homes.
Specially formulated paint stands up to UV levels in a way few field-applied paints can, offering up to 30% more fade resistance. ColorPlus Technology finishes are warranted for 15 years against cracks, chips and peeling. A warranty that is not feasibly possible for natural wood siding products such as cedar siding.
James Hardie – the largest producer of fiber cement siding in North America – is the only siding manufacturer that controls its new siding products from the initial mixing of the cement to final painting in one facility. Over 41 quality checks are made throughout the proprietary manufacturing process to ensure the quality of the substrate, the texture and the finish. The products are also checked at three outside testing facilities to monitor long-term durability. No other manufacturer can match James Hardie’s demanding quality standards. And most of the raw materials used to make James Hardie Siding are extracted and processed near each manufacturing facility.
The James Hardie ColorPlus technology finish also represents a revolutionary breakthrough. The paint used in the process was made especially for James Hardie siding after more than four years in development and over 2,000 formulas tested. The end result is a durable, low-maintenance finish that lasts up to two times longer, has 30% better fade resistance and adheres up to 400% better than any other paint available.
Color integrity is a critical part of James Hardie® ColorPlus® technology. It includes color accuracy, color-matching James Hardie siding products, consistency of the paint application, fade resistance and finish longevity.
Have you ever taken a gallon of paint back to the store because it didn’t match the rest of your project? How would you feel if one side of your house was a shade darker than the rest? James Hardie’s color variance accuracy standards for our ColorPlus technology finish are three times stricter than what’s acceptable for most “store-bought” paints and more tightly controlled than the automotive industry.
James Hardie’s proprietary manufacturing process involves applying consistent, multiple coats of paint that was developed especially for our fiber-cement siding. Then, the paint is baked-on in a closely controlled factory environment. Our automated manufacturing process, constant quality monitoring and application of up to 50% more paint – compared to field-applied paint – provides the most consistent paint application at the optimal thickness.
Many alternative siding products and hardboard siding with paint that’s applied “in the field” can fade quite substantially over time, making the colors dull and difficult to match when repairs or touch-ups are needed later on. Because our exclusive paint is specifically engineered to withstand the sun’s damaging UV (ultraviolet) rays, the James Hardie ColorPlus technology finish gives you up to 30% better fade resistance.
