Our Star Panel Profile has a 36 inch coverage with a full 29 gauge thickness. Our Star Panels can be installed over an open purlin system, or a solid substrate. They can be used for exterior and interior applications. They are precisely formed with clean, distinct lines. They are intricately designed with a five degree over-bend on the overlap, combined with an anti-siphon groove on the underlap for superior weather tightness. This design also creates a less noticeable overlap, resulting in a more beautiful application.

The Ceranamel™ XT-40S coil coating finishes provide a new level of Long Term Exterior performance for building product applications. The Ceranamel™ XT-40S Series is formulated with a Proprietary Super Durable Polyester resin which provides superior resistance to chalking, fading and environmental weathering. The Ceranamel™ XT-40s system also uses only the highest quality Exterior Grade and Cool Pigmentation to insure the best available long term high U.V. radiation color and gloss retention.

The Long Term exterior weathering performance makes Ceranamel™ XT-40S coatings your cost effective choice for Commercial, Monumental and Residential applications. Ideal for use on all Building Components especially Roof and Side panels, Soffit, Fascia, etc. The improved coating hardness and abrasion resistance make it a perfect choice for roof tile and shingle applications.

Available in a wide variety of standard and custom colors, an efficient custom color matching process provides quick delivery of special colors to meet customer needs. Ceranamel™ XT-40S finishes are designed for application to primed Hot Dipped Galvanized, Zinc-Aluminum Alloy Steel (i.e. Zincalume®, Galvalume®), Cold Rooled Steel and Aluminum substrates.

The Ceranamel™ XT-40S Series is a Custom Warranted coating system designed to be applied as two-coat primed/finish system. Use of the DC477 Global Primer imparts exceptional physical properties and corrosion protection. Our Backer completes the system and provides excellent “wet stack” corrosion protection and its internal lubricants assist roll forming.
