Microposite Inc. (Auburn Hills, Mich.) announced on Sept. 29 that it has introduced to the building and construction market a new composite siding product for residential applications.

Earlier this year, Microposite worked with the International Code Council (ICC) to develop an entirely new acceptance criterion for which its products will be evaluated. Leveraging patented closed-cell technology, Microposite siding delivers an R-value 1.5 times higher than wood and 3.5 times higher than fiber cement, while also weighing in at half the weight of fiber cement siding. Microposite's 7/16-inch/11.1 mm boards reportedly provide "the authentic look of wood and the durability of fiber cement."

The siding is made with glass microspheres and a proprietary resin to produce a product that resists water absorption and decay,  features a natural grain pattern, and reportedly resists insects, temperature shifts, buckling and warping.
