This Crane siding (material covering the outside of frame buildings) provided by Crane company as cladding ( clothing or covering) is paint, vinyl or others. In other words, it is a plastic exterior cladding for a house providing both decoration and weatherproofing as an alternative to conventional wood, aluminium or fiber cement. Containing nearly 80% Polyvinyl Chloride and resin, with the remaining 20% made of other components for color, impact resistance, opacity, gloss, flexibility and durability, this vinyl is most commonly used.
An independently-owned factory called Crane Plastics in Columbia, Ohio in 1950, initially manufactured siding through mono-extrusion method by blending colors manually, when the product looking nothing more than aluminium siding, was not of consistent quality, or sophisticated look then.
• By the 1970s, thanks to technological advancements, Crane company improved techniques in production process, sturdiness and colors resulting in wider application in the US and Canada owing to its durability and ease of maintenance.
• Today co-extrusion process is followed in manufacturing vinyl siding. Two layers of PVC are laid down in a continuous extrusion process, the top layer being weatherable capstock comprising 1/3 of its siding thickness. This capstock contains about 10% titanium dioxide, a pigment providing resistance to breakdown due to UV light. Vinyl siding like paint will fade inevitably over time, but the fade rate is somewhat slower with vinyl.
