RESYSTA - The better wood
The innovative green product
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!
One material, endless possibilities
Water resistant, sustainable and almost identical to tropical wood – all these characteristics open a variety of possibilities in using Resysta. Outdoor furniture, floor coverings and decks of ships are just the beginning. Further examples are house facades, wellness and wet areas. Resysta is not subject to any fluctuations in size caused by humidity and therefore is perfectly suitable for surface treatment. Whatever the future will look like – it is made of Resysta.
Minumum care maximum look
Resysta is sophisticated as far as its look is concerned, but not very demanding in maintenance. The fibre reinforce hybrid material is absolutely water resistant. Therefore, cracks and splinters are a thing of the past. Also insects and fungi cannot harm Resysta. In terms of maintaining Resysta, the most important thing is:lean back and enjoy!
A good feeling with Resysta
Resysta does not only look like wood – it also feels like it. In order to achieve the typical “tropical wood feeling” a special procedure is applied. To touch Resysta does not only feel good, it also surpasses nature´s model in this respect. Thanks to its special composition, the surface stays free from cracks and splinters in the long term. Injuries caused by wooden splinters are therefore a thing of the past. Even after years, the future material ensures an agreeable feeling.
