Muskegon, MI - Lorin Industries Inc., a global industry leader in the innovation and production of coil anodized aluminum, highlights their leading product, ClearMatt® Architectural Class I finish for exterior applications.

ClearMatt® is described as ideal for architectural projects for a range of architectural and construction applications, including in the use of exterior paneling for façades as well as cool roofs. For these reasons, ClearMatt® anodized aluminum is featured on a multitude of iconic buildings.

Lorin ClearMatt® aesthetically offers a beautiful metallic look that comes from the three-dimensional look of anodized aluminum. ClearMatt® Architectural Class I finish meets the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) standard for high performance anodic finishes. Designers looking for an anodized aluminum product with natural metallic beauty that is formable for most exterior applications will find a clear choice in Lorin's ClearMatt®.

Lorin ClearMatt® can be found on a multitude of iconic buildings throughout the U.S., such as the US Olympic Paralympic Museum in Colorado Springs, CO and the Taystee Lab Building in the Manhattanville Factory District on 125th St. in New York City, among many others. ClearMatt® also is available in perforated patterns which can be used on façades of parking garages where ventilation is a must, but some form of privacy or protection from the elements is still warranted.

Lorin ClearMatt® can be used not only for façades, but also roofs and is an excellent product application for those who want a “cool roof”, meaning the material can be used in LEED designs that require roofs to remain relatively cool in warm temperature conditions. When used as part of cool roof design, ClearMatt® decreases roof temperatures, which can extend the service life of the roof, and reduces energy costs by decreasing air-conditioning requirements. Cool roofs also benefit the environment by reducing the urban heat island effect (ambient air temperature), lowering peak electrical demand, reducing ground level ozone and reducing power plant emissions brought on by the reduction of cooling energy use in buildings. ClearMatt® anodized aluminum works because its translucent protective layer allows the metal's natural reflectivity to shine through while offering outstanding corrosion protection.
