Resysta - The future material.
The material Resysta 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 fiber reinforced hybrid material is produced of approximately 60 percent rice husks, approximately 22 percent common salt and approximately 18 percent 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!

          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** For many years siding has been the most traditional form of decorating and waterproofing building walls. Currently the building industry offers several options for this product, but still the most popular remain wood and plastic.
Although visually there are many positive aspects of using siding, every one of them has its disadvantages. Installation of widely preferred wooden siding is followed by costly maintenance that needs to be performed every 4 to 9 years and the plastic siding presents a high environmental cost related to difficulty of responsible disposal.
Therefore fully recyclable Resysta siding is a perfect solution. With the natural look and feel of wood followed by the minimal maintenance requirements it won over the architects, homeowners and contractors all over the USA.

          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** 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.
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Resysta Color Concept provides unique opportunity to create stunning projects with the variety of over 30 colors. We pride ourselves to offer the only composite product on the market which can be refinished based on customers color preference.
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Water based stain for the color design of surfaces.
Resysta Stain is a carefully mixed composition of the water-diluted paint system with the high quality pigments. The unique color of the surfaces is achieved by the interaction between the shade of the Resysta substrate and the transparent color hue of the stain. The overall outcome is determined by the amount of pigments applied, Therefore some colors appear to be less transparent than the others. Moreover, variations of the shade between boards stained with the same color are also to be expected, which adds to the unique visual properties of the Resysta material.
          1.Primer: RBP Resysta Base Primer is an aqueous, colorless primer based on an acrylate dispersion
          2.RCL Resysta Coating Layer is a water-based 1-component protective stain for color designing of Resysta surfaces. RCL finish is specially designed for indoor and outdoor use
