Heat Forming

The Aspect Panel Endurance Series is Heat-Formed.

Why heat form?

Heat forming eliminates paint cracking over the ribs of the panel. Once the paint cracks, it is an invitation for rust. A heat-formed panel adds to the longevity of your paint system and the life of your roof.

What is a heat box?

A heat box is an extra step in the roll-forming process that comes before the flat sheets go through the roll forming die.

What does the heat box do?

A heat box brings the flat sheets to a higher temperature, which softens the paint and allows it to bend and adapt as it goes through the roll former.
