PATENTED (GP)2 TECHNOLOGY

ASCEND is the world’s first composite cladding engineered with a combination of Glass-Reinforced Polymer and Graphite-Infused Polystyrene. This patented (GP)2 technology was developed to achieve superior performance in tests for wind load and impact resistance, workability and flame/smoke spread. With (GP)2, ASCEND boasts:

♦ Class A Fire Rating
for both flame spread and smoke developed

♦ Impressive thermal
and impact resistance

♦ Superior wind load
performance

ASCEND’s (GP)2 compound contains glass particles for added structural stability, strength and heat resistance, while titanium dioxide protects against ultraviolet degradation, and impact modifiers help resist dents and dings. (GP)2’s integral weatherable pigments provide strong fade resistance, even on ASCEND’s dark colors, and its non-moisture-absorbing materials prevent rotting, warping, shrinking and swelling.
