Channahon, IL (September 18, 2019) — As the first alternative to aluminum in the RV market, Crane fiberglass sidewalls have been the leading industry solution for more than 30 years. Continuing to raise the bar, Crane Composites is proudly introducing its newest offering in the FILON lineup of coilable exterior sidewall panels: FILON® MAX.

The next generation of RV sidewalls, FILON MAX is specially formulated to deliver maximum weathering capabilities. It’s also engineered with an enhanced surface and superior high-gloss finish that is especially illuminating in natural light compared to previous generations.

Recreational Vehicles. “Our new FILON MAX’s enhanced surface finish, higher gloss and improved color retention is exactly what the market has needed.”
