Aluminum Trim Colors


  • Manufactured from eco-friendly, sustainable, recyclable, fire resistant material
  • Tamlyn XtremeTrim® may be used in interior or exterior weather conditions
  • Use Direct to Metal Alkyd Enamel (DTM) paint with XtremeTrim® consult with your local siding color paint manufacturer for best practice and proper painting methods. For more information, visit Sherwin-Williams DTM Alkyd Enamel Web Page.
  • Always follow the paint manufacturer’s recommendations to apply


  • Tamlyn PVC Trim may be painted to achieve a custom color
  • Use a light color only, 100% acrylic latex paint with a light reflective value (LRV) of 55 or higher (Flat Black=0, pure white=100). Painting PVC trim with dark colors may cause the product to warp
  • Tamlyn does not recommend painting our PVC products with dark colors
  • If a dark color (LRV value of 50 or lower/darker) paint is used, excess solar heat may be absorbed, subjecting the PVC to warping and distortion due to extremes of thermal expansion and contraction. This reaction is even more evident when these parts are exposed to direct sunlight in hot climates. Paint adhesion loss, blistering and peeling may also result
  • Tamlyn will not be responsible for repair or replacement of any project using dark color print resulting damage due to distortion, warping, buckling, shrinkage, paint blistering, or peeling of paint on the PVC products, or repair or replacement of related siding, soffit, or trim products
  • Always follow the paint manufacturer’s recommendations to apply
  • Make sure Tamlyn PVC Trim is clean and dry before painting

Primed Finish Standard

XtremeTrim® extruded profiles and ColorFlashingTM fabricated profiles are provided standard with a primed finish using a proprietary primer suitable for field painting using most paint materials. Ideal application is with a direct to metal alkyd enamel. Consult your local paint manufacturers for best practice and proper paint selection and application.

Anodized Finishes

Tamlyn stocks Clear Anodized (Architectural 200R1) in almost all extruded profiles. In addition, other anodized finishes such as Dark Bronze, Medium Bronze, Light Bronze, Gold, or Black are available as special order. All anodized finishes are provided within an industry range of color consistency and can vary slightly from item to item. Special order anodized colors are subject to specific quantity minimums by item. Anodizing is an electrochemical conversion process that deposits an oxide film on the aluminum profile. A natural oxidation process occurs on all bare aluminum, however, producing the oxidation process artificially through anodizing creates a thicker, harder, and more durable oxide film which is an extremely durable finish resistant to most forms of airborne corrosion.

Anodized Specifications

Standard Clear Anodized – Architectural 200R1 medium etch (AA-M32CA21). Thickness of anodic coating shall be tested in accordance with ASTM B-244-68. Color Anodized Finish – two step impregnated color Class II Architectural of 0.40-0.70 mils (AA-M12C22A33) Thickness of anodic coating shall be tested in accordance with ASTM B-244-68. Tamlyn also provides Clear Anodized fabricated profiles in 0.040 sheet stock to compliment the extruded Clear Anodized profiles.

Powder Coating

Powder coating is an advanced method of applying finish to products. The powder used for the process is a mixture of finely ground particles of pigment and resin, which is sprayed onto a surface to be coated. The charged powder particles adhere to the electrically grounded surfaces until heated and fused into a smooth coating in a curing oven. The result is a uniform, durable, high- quality, and attractive finish. Powder coating gives longest-lasting and most color-durable quality finishes available. Powder coated surfaces are more resistant to chipping, scratching, fading, and wearing than other finishes. Tamlyn powder coats in-house to match all major siding colors. Quantity limits apply for custom color powder coat processing.

Traditional Wet Paint Processing

Tamlyn also can provide traditional wet paint process for custom colors. This is advantageous often for smaller volume orders. The color control and matching can be precisely managed to assure consistency throughout a job or project. Minimum quantity limits apply for all color matches.
