- Fibrex vs. Ultrex – Durability and longevity are two features that will either make or break a sale. Ultrex, which is made of a pultruded fiberglass material and is so strong and durable that it cannot be cut without a diamond-edge blade — Fibrex is made of roughly 40% vinyl and a mixture of wood pulp. Because vinyl and wood pulp are susceptible to temperature, they are prone to crack and structural damage overtime.
- Expansion & Contraction – Ultrex fiberglass is not derived from vinyl and is extremely resistant to severe temperature change. In addition, because glass and fiberglass are made of similar materials (sand and silica), the frame and glass expand and contract at virtually the same rate. No matter how you look at it, Infinity from Marvin outperforms wood and vinyl in both durability and longevity. It’s time to quit Fibrex and fully embrace Ultrex Fiberglass for its unmatched strength and prolonged service life.
