Pura NFC® by Trespa® creates premium quality products.  And the Quality R&D Scientists at Trespa International have shared 10 short videos that demonstrate the rigorous testing they apply to their panels.

The following two tests prove how well Trespa panels perform when subjected to scratching or impact.

  • Test #5 Resistance to Scratching is illustrates how beautifully the panels hold up to everyday wear and tear such as rubbing tree branches or flying debris.
  • Test #6 Impact Resistance by Large Diameter Ball is important because it shows that the panel strength can handle baseball size hail, or the baseball hit by the kids in the yard, avoiding costly repairs.

In Test #5 Resistance To Scratching, a diamond tip mimics all sorts of abrasion that can affect your siding. Like the pointy end of a tree branch against your siding. Think about how badly debris and tree limbs can wreak havoc on your siding appearance during stormy weather.

Even on an average day, a tree branch repeatedly rubbing on inferior siding can cause damage quickly. With Trespa you won't worry about a dulled or scratched appearance. Trespa siding panels are tested extensively and proven to hold up to this kind of abuse and keep their appearance year after year.
