Letter to the Editor from Aidan Harte, Managing Director, Freefoam Plastics

I applaud Swish Building Plastics in extending its guarantee on white profile to 25 years.It was seen as a big day for roofline and rainwater when Freefoam launched its extended 20 year transferable guarantee five years ago.

Some kept to a more limited 10 year guarantee on white profile, while Swish raised its guarantee to 15 years. Freefoam is still alone in giving a 10 year guarantee on coloured profile. But domestic and commercial property owners voted with their wallets and our installers found the 20 year guarantee helped them win more orders than their competitors who offered more grudging guarantees.

Freefoam was able to extend its guarantee because our advanced PVC-UE formulations are tin based, with built in long lasting colourfastness. It is no coincidence that Swish also uses tin stabilised formulations.

Earlier this year (January), in an article on our latest more advanced tin technology, we announced we would review our guarantees with a view to extending them. Having had many years of trouble free performance in all weathers from Scotland to the South of France with our lead free formulations, Freefoam’s proprietary COLORMAX® technology and our extra TiO2 UV protection we are pleased to announce our new extended, transferable 30 year guarantee on white roofline, cladding and rainwater. Freefoam’s standard guarantee on white products has been increased to 20 years. The guarantee on coloured and foiled product will stay at 10 years while we build up the performance record to support a revision of the period. Our intention is however, as we announced in January 2010, to revise this upwards as soon as the evidence enables us to do so.

Yours sincerely

Aidan Harte

Managing Director
