DYNABOARD PVC window and door reveals.
The perfect low maintenance complement to aluminium windows.
The demands of the modern lifestyle place a premium on our leisure time.
Increasingly we are turning to low maintenance and time saving products to
allow us to maximise the valuable but limited leisure time available to us.
Maximising modern technology has resulted in DYNABOARD, a PVC window and
door reveal that has all the looks and charm of traditional timber reveals
but without the painting and costs associated with its upkeep. DYNABOARD is
the perfect low maintenance complement to aluminium windows.
With smart looks and a semigloss finish DYNABOARD is resistant to
impact, denting and chipping. Manufactured from PVC with a strong scratch
resistant topcoat and a cellular core DYNABOARD is light and easy to work
with. The unique cellular structure of DYNABOARD provides excellent thermal
insulation properties, which further enhances the products appeal.
DYNABOARD is impervious to water and will not rot or warp. This makes
the product excellent for wet areas such as the bathroom, kitchen and
A long life building material DYNABOARD only requires the occasional
wipe down with soapy water to maintain its good looks. For more information
on DYNABOARD contact your local Aluminium Window fabricator.

One of the features of DYNABOARD is that it can be processed using the
same equipment as wood. It can be sawn, stapled, nailed, routed, drilled,
screwed and glued.
1. SURFACE PROTECTION:
A thin barrier film has been adhered to the pre-finished surface. This
is primarily to provide protection against dust and accidental spills of
paint, plaster etc. during finishing of the building interior. The surface
protection film should be left on during fabrication and removed by the
installer after all interior work has been completed. Fabricators should be
careful with the finished surface during processing, storage and transport.
Although the board has resistance to damage, it can be scratched if dragged
across another hard surface.
2. SAWING: DYNABOARD can be sawn using standard wood working machinery,
with a fine toothed blade giving best results. To avoid damaging the
finished surface, power saw with the back of the board facing the blade.
3. CORNERS: For best results corners should be mitre cut, glued and
fixed the same as wood reveals. Typical fixing methods include stapling,
nailing and screwing. If using automatic tools for fixing, such as a
pneumatic stapler, the pressure may need to be reduced compared with that
for wood. If gluing is desired, use a PVC glue such as Marley MCS solvent
cement. Care should be taken to avoid glue contact with pre-finished
4. CURVED WINDOWS: Because DYNABOARD is made from a thermoplastic PVC,
it is relatively simple to bend it to form curved windows.
5. TRANSPORTING FINISHED WINDOWS: Treat DYNABOARD as you would for other
finished surfaces such as powder coated aluminium by protecting it when
transporting to the installation site. Exposed surfaces should be covered
with a protective material such as cardboard or cloth, particularly where
they contact the transport vehicle or another hard surface.
6. STORAGE: Boards should be stored in their original packaging or on
bearers at 600mm centres, with no other materials being laid on top.
Incorrect storage may result in buckling or distortion.
