Made by in Towanda, Pennsylvania
  • CMI has been creating innovative building products since 1968
  • The Towanda mill covers 237 acres, with 17.5 acres under roof

The TEC™ Process was Created to Make MiraTEC
  • The process is patented and proprietary to CMI, the manufacturer of MiraTEC Trim.
  • Select wood fiber, environmentally safe phenolic resins, a wood preservative, and other ingredients are combined and formed into a thick fiber mat.
  • This mat is loaded into the sealed cavity press.
  • Steam is introduced during the pressing process to facilitate uniform heat transfer throughout the mat, resulting in a board that has exceptionally consistent physical properties.
    • Critical factors are set during this process to produce a firm surface for superb paint holdout and performance.
    • Results in a new-to-the-world material.
