MiraTEC, which is made from sustainable materials and renewable resources, is created using CMI’s patented and proprietary TEC manufacturing process that was developed specifically to make trim.  During manufacturing, wood fibers and other ingredients are bonded under heat and pressure, combined with environmentally preferable phenolic resins for moisture resistance, and treated with zinc borate, an EPA-registered wood preservative, for added protection against rot and termite damage.  MiraTEC trim has no knots or voids like wood, so it eliminates waste.  Plus, it is not prone to thermal expansion.  The mouldings are factory primed with a specially formulated, low VOC primer to provide a mildew resistant smooth surface for finishing.

MiraTEC mouldings handle like wood, are easier to work with than fiber cement, and offer the durability and long-term performance benefits of PVC at a lower price point.

“Since 1999, the MiraTEC product line has combined convenience with high-quality performance to become a trusted option for exterior applications,” said Bob Merrill, CMI president and CEO.  “Our new crown mouldings are a perfect accent to any exterior cladding and make it easy to quickly add curb appeal without breaking the budget.”

Designed to provide excellent outdoor durability, MiraTEC moldings are backed by an extensive 50-year warranty covering a variety of outdoor exposure damages, including  hail, delamination, termites, fungi, and water swelling.
