Pro10XL Extended Life Paint

No more guessing on colors

Pro10XL paint is warranteed for color retention and consistency at less than 5 ΔE deviation for 5 years and 7 ΔE for 10 years. What does that mean? It means you can assure your customers that their products won't drastically and unexpectedly change color, as they might with other coatings. Here's a look at what you can expect from our paint, and what you might get with other coatings.

Pro10-XL Deviations

Industry Standard

Profile Extrusion Aluminum Paint PRO10XL LogoPro10XL features reduced color deviation, extended gloss retention, and an industry-leading warranty. This revolutionary product is available exclusively from Profile Custom Extrusion.

Pro10XL is a proprietary polyester resin that provides extra protection from acid rain and corrosive environments. It is made with premium exterior grade pigmentation to provide superior color stability and resistance to chalking and fading.

The exterior weathering performance makes Pro10XL a cost effective coating for commercial and monumental applications. It is ideal for use on curtain walls, window frames, store fronts, fascia, trim railings and more.

AAMA specifications for 2604 paint are categorized by performance and generally include a 5-year warranty. Without adding additional cost from the industry standard, PRO10-XL offers a 10-year warranty. The paint will not only resist chips, cracks, and peeling, but is warranteed for color retention and consistency at less than 5 ΔE deviation for 5 years and 7 ΔE for 10 years.

Some warranties do not include retention or contain hidden stipulations that make their chip, crack, and peel warranties deceptive. Pro10XL beats the industry standard with a 10-year warranty on chips, cracks, and peels.

“Pro10XL allows our customers to differentiate themselves from their competitors and offer their own customers a superior finished product with longer life,” says Profile General Manager David Newby.
