Quanex Building Products Corporation to Exhibit at GlassBuild 2011

HOUSTON, Aug 1, 2011 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) -- Quanex Building Products Corporation (NYSE:NX), an industry-leading manufacturer of value-added, engineered materials and components for the building products markets, will debut its innovative lineup of products, systems and services at GlassBuild 2011, Sept. 12-14, in Atlanta. At last year's GlassBuild, the company unveiled its newly aligned businesses - Mikron, Truseal and Homeshield, strategically combined to deliver more solutions and value to customers. This year, the company will be presenting additional products and services from its recent acquisition of Edgetech I.G.

"We consider GlassBuild the premier venue for our award winning products as the event plays host to the leaders in the fenestration industry," said Dave Petratis, Quanex Building Products President and CEO. "The attendees come with a sharp eye for innovative products that can set their business apart from competitors. We continue to build our arsenal to offer them the best in energy efficient products, technical expertise and operational excellence."

Subject-matter experts will be on-hand at Quanex's booth #415 to discuss challenges and opportunities within the fenestration markets. The booth will also feature integrated high-performance window and door systems, including:

  --  MikronWood(TM) next generation composite material, which boasts the
      beauty of wood with the weather-resistant, no-maintenance advantages of
      vinyl or fiberglass. MikronWood also offers superior resistance to
      thermal conductivity with k-values that are 63 percent better than wood
      and 83 percent better than fiberglass.
  --  EnergyCore(TM) frame and Duralite(TM) spacer window system which, in
      combination, reduce thermal conductivity by up to 45 percent and achieve
      better than R-5 with a triple-pane glass configuration. This performance
      is achieved by eliminating metal and replacing more than 60 percent of
      the spacer profile with air space. New additions to the EnergyCore
      product line will also be introduced at GlassBuild, including
      single-hung and slider options.
  --  ImperiClad(TM) moisture-impervious door frame system with MikronWood(TM)
      that includes a water-shedding threshold with unique energy-efficient,
      weather-stripped jambs.
