Due to the high material density Resysta is especially resistant to rain, snow and ice. Does not swell, splinter, shrink or crack. Resysta differs from other materials. Lignin is the substance that causes wood to gray when exposed to weather influences. Resysta does not contain any wood components and will therefore not gray.
What is RESYSTA?
Resysta offers the warmth and feel of wood, but it also embodies the sustainability and wearability that natural hardwoods like IPE or Teak lack. Resysta also stands apart from wood composites because it is a bio-based wood substitute. One touch demonstrates the difference.
Resysta Focuses On Delivering FOUR PROMISES
Resysta takes agricultural waste and transforms it into a durable building product with many applications. Approximately 60% (by volume) of the proprietary formula is rice husks, a rapidly renewable resource in great supply. Calcium carbonate and synthetic plastic polymer combined with the ARF (Active Resysta Filler) at extremely high temperatures yield a product that can be formed to almost any shape or size. Resysta qualifies for third party sustainability certifications based on its renewable resource content and being 100% recyclable in the manufacturing process and after many years of use. Resysta does NOT contain any wood and therefore does not contribute to deforestation. Resysta can be finished with over 30 beautiful water-based stains and sealed to assure color durability.
Have you seen any 10-year-old wood decks lately? Resysta Decking does not crack, splinter or rot. Insects don’t like Resysta material either, so it withstands pest infestation or fungal decay. It is also water resistant, even against saltwater, so its lifespan is considerably longer than wood. Sun, rain, hail, snow and extreme temperatures have minimal impact on Resysta, making it a great choice for any environment in the world. The surface is also slip-resistant.
Unlike its composite counterparts, spot damage on Resysta can be repaired. Any other man made composite product needs to be replaced. Resysta, instead can be sanded, stained and sealed, just like wood. Exceptional durability combined with easy maintenance makes Resysta ownership easy.
The longest list of product attributes means nothing, if the look and feel is all wrong. Resysta’s biggest selling point is aesthetics. This opinion is shared by thousands of architects, designers and home owners who were introduced to Resysta. The material components and extruding process result in a product that is virtually indistinguishable from the tropical hardwoods which are popular in architectural compositions nowadays. Typical applications of Resysta are decking, siding and facades, but it’s well-suited for windows, paneling, shutters, fencing and outdoor furniture. The possibilities are unlimited.
The Innovation Behind Resysta
In 1996, the Hong Kong chemist Antonio Siu discovered a new mixture of rice husks and plastic, which, when dried, shows similar consistency and appearance of wood. Together with Bernd Duna, he refined his process and the optics of the newly invented tropical wood substitute. The positive experiences with this sustainable and almost indestructible material gained trust of home owners, designer, architects and contractors. Resysta is used whenever it is important that terraces, facades and surfaces look good and last long, with little maintenance.
PUSHING IT EVEN FURTHER
Presented as an outcome of advanced engineering,
here are just a few advantages of using resysta

TRYING TO MATCH FOR A SPECIFIC COLOR?
Classic or modern – with the proprietary finish, especially formulated for the Resysta surfaces, the decking or facade profiles are perfectly finished and protected against infiltration of dirt caused by wear and environmental influences. With selected color shades the surface finish of your choice can be easily created. The water based formula is odorless and with minimum maintenance traces of use can be easily removed. Since Resysta material is made mainly of natural fibers, each board has a warm color shade with beautiful grain variations. These distinctions from one plank to another give Resysta material natural wood-like appearance. Therefore we proudly like to say that visually Resysta surfaces are “consistently inconsistent” and no other man made composite product has properties like RESYSTA.
