Designing with TruGrain
TruGrain not only offers the look and feel of wood, it has many similar working properties of wood. It can be bent, shaped and joined like wood, making it perfect to be used as an accent material. And because TruGrain will not swell, shrink or crack, it is also well-suited for use as wall cladding and on soffits. TruGrain can also be stained in a wide palette of natural wood tones and designer colors for even more design versatility.

Landscaping/Outdoor Design
TruGrain has been especially developed for outdoor areas. It withstands the fiercest weather conditions, like driving rain, extreme temperatures, and prolonged sun or shade exposure. It also has a very high skid resistance, making it a safe material for surfaces with heavy foot traffic. TruGrain has a high material density, so it is especially resistant to high humidity and excessively wet environments. Thanks to these exceptional properties, TruGrain makes it easy to incorporate the look and feel of exotic hardwood into a variety of outdoor applications such as:
  • Decking
  • Docks
  • Seating/benches
  • Outdoor kitchens
  • Pergolas/cabanas
  • Footbridges
  • Outdoor showers
  • Terrace construction

Because TruGrain is 100 % water-resistant, the application capabilities are almost unlimited!

Design for lifelong enjoyment
TruGrain requires minimum maintenance on even the most utilized surfaces. After installation and staining/sealing TruGrain, all that''s left to do is enjoy it for decades to come, with no worries about swelling, cracking or discoloration. Lignin is the substance that causes wood to gray over time when exposed to sunlight and harsh weather. TruGrain does not contain any wood components and will therefore not gray. The polar properties of TruGrain allow for superior adherence of glazes and sealing - the perfect precondition for long-lasting color. The color will not chip or flake off TruGrain. Resysta glazes contain the highest quality color pigments and are not impacted by UV-light. TruGrain also meets the requirements for the highest classification against fungal decay - no more unsightly green wood.

Attribute/Benefits
  • Thanks to TruGrain''s polar properties, glazes and sealants perfectly adhere to the surface.
  • TruGrain does not absorb water, so glazes and sealants will not flake off.
  • No surface graying
  • Negligible color changes, even after many years

Sustainability

TruGrain made with Resysta products deliver the luxurious look and feel of exotic hardwoods without impacting a single tree. Resysta's proprietary material blend is comprised primarily of rice husks, an agricultural waste by-product. When combined with mineral oil, salt and other additives, the result is a product almost indistinguishable from real wood. Like real wood, TruGrain is 100% recyclable. Unlike real wood, TruGrain is water-resistant and will not crack or splinter, resulting in a much longer life span.

Through material innovation and product design, TruGrain effectively combines nature and science to produce a beautiful, durable product at a competitive price. TruGrain can earn points under various Sustainable design and construction programs.
