Window Material: Why Fibrex® Is a Cut Above the Rest

Andersen® Corporation perfected the composite window material technology in 1992. The result was Fibrex®. Made from wood fibers and thermoplastic polymers, our patented material offers everything desirable about wood and vinyl without the negative qualities associated with them. It may not be the only good option on the market, but it’s probably the closest to perfection.

Window Material: Why Fibrex® Is a Cut Above the Rest

Here’s why Renewal by Andersen® of Houston’s Fibrex is your best choice for window replacement:

It Resists Decay

Our proprietary polymer encases and fills every individual wood fiber cell of Fibrex, allowing it to effectively repel moisture. As a result, it doesn’t rot like ordinary timber. Our first, long-term durability study reveals that Fibrex can withstand 20 years of Minnesota’s brutal winters and searing summers, showing no signs of chipping and peeling. With its ability to retain its attractive finish, it eliminates the need for costly and disruptive periodic scraping and painting.

It Maintains Its Airtight Seal

Unlike vinyl, Fibrex doesn’t bow or crack. It stays rigid and stable even with extreme temperature fluctuations, ensuring maximum weathertightness. Its low expansion/contraction rate means the prevention of leakage under normal circumstances.

It Preserves Architectural Integrity

Fibrex can emulate the appearance of your original windows, delivering architectural accuracy. Compared with fiberglass that looks artificial, Fibrex can be designed so our window frames and sashes reflect the shapes and lines of your old units. Our innovative extrusion process allows us to produce windows in virtually any profile, including circles, triangles and polygons.

It Traps Heat

Our revolutionary composite material insulates 700 times better than aluminum. Complementing our high-performance glass, Fibrex contributes to the exceptional energy efficiency of our casement, bay, bow, picture, sliding, specialty and double hung windows. Expect to see noticeable utility bill reductions all year round.

It Is Eco-Friendly

We only use reclaimed, unused materials from Andersen manufacturing facilities to produce Fibrex. In fact, Fibrex consists of 40% reused wood fibers by weight. As of 2015, our use of Fibrex has prevented the harvesting of more than 9 million board feet of lumber since it was first developed.
