Did you know that advanced composite materials (such as pultruded fibreglass profiles used to fabricate Boavista Windows) can be painted and re-painted as many times as you can? And that paint is a crucial part of the whole product?

In windows, the coating system contributes to the UV rays resistance. It also provides the coolness of having any colour you desire 😉
