The Better Wood


Already today, Resysta meets tomorrow´s technical and ecological demands. Owing to the high durability and sustainability Resysta offers, completely new applications are possible. The fibre reinforced hybrid material is produced of approx. 60% rice husks, approx. 22% common salt and approx. 18% mineral oil, which makes it both environmentally friendly as well as extremely weather resistant against sun, rain, snow or salt water. At the same time, Resysta requires minimal care and offers the look and feel of wood. Water resistant surfaces with the look of wood are Resysta´s future. Wait and see!


Did you know?
4.5 million hectares of rain forest are destroyed each year for timber. 10 hectares per minute! They are the green lungs of the earth and when they go the earth dies! From 1800 to 2009, 1.6 billion hectares of the world’s total 4.4 billion hectares of rain forest were destroyed. Its where 90% of all primates are found 90% of Madagascar and West Africa rain forests are gone, and 50% of Asia’s. Resysta is helping to save our planet. No Tree fell in the making of Resysta.

Prof. Dr. Karl Stetter from the University of Rosenheim, Germany says in his official evaluation of Resysta, ‘For the named applications, Resysta provides perfect preconditions owing to its exceptional tensile and impact strength, resistance to temperature, humidity, sun and insects and in its generally substantial inert composition. Unlike wood, Resysta does not swell,splinter, grey or fade, is crack-free and is resistant to fungal decay. Products made of Resysta are therefore very durable without requiring special care and maintenance.
This material is a real alternative to tropical wood. Futhermore products made of Resysta have an especially beneficial ecobalance and bear positive hygienic properties”.
