Certain Teed Makes Fiber Cement Siding with 50% Fly Ash, Recycling 100,000 Tons of the Material Each Year

(Terre Haute News 2-3-10) CertainTeed has added a new in-house finished paint and coating system to its largest fiber cement siding plant in the Vigo County Industrial Park, south of Terre Haute. The new equipment began production in September, with the first shipment made on Dec. 8, said Allison J. Barlaz, director of marketing for the company. “We have a priming line, but we didn’t have a finished paint coating line. So this allows us to offer a complete solution direct from a single facility,” Barlaz said.
