Our aim was to develop a weather and water resistant material with the noble look and feel of wood. A material obtained from a renewable resource, resistant to water, sun, wind and cold. A material which does not splinter over time, saves resources and is always of a consistent, high quality.
After 15 years of intensive research we succeeded – Resysta was born. Since then, the material has passed several international stress tests under extreme conditions. As a hybrid material mainly consisting of rice husks, Resysta is not only extremely resistant; it also sets new stan-dards of sustainability.
Furthermore, Resysta can be supplied in any shape and color. Thus, opening up completely new horizons for architects and designers – they can now realise their dreams with the visual appearance and structure of wood without being stopped by the material’s limits.
Resysta is bipolar therefore it does not absorb any water, but can come into contact with it.
Owing to this intriguing fact, Resysta colors are readily applied to the material and it can be bonded. When the surface becomes damp, Resysta engages with it, whereas humidity does not penetrate. This results in a velvety feel of the material. Totally unique, totally comfortable – totally Resysta.
Characteristics which leave a lasting impression.
Since Resysta does not absorb any water, it can neither splinter, crack nor swell – it is exactly these properties that make it an
extremely durable material.
WORKABLE LIKE WOOD:
Resysta can be glued, sanded, milled, drilled, sawed and colored.
Resysta is extremely resistant against UV radiation.
Resysta mainly consists of rice husk – a by-product of rice production. Rice husk is a renewable resource that can be replaced in short cycles.
Resysta can be pulverised and new Resysta products continuously be processed out of it.
The Future Formula is called Resysta.
Already today, Resysta meets tomorrow’s technical and ecological demands. Owing to its durability and sustainability, completely new designs are possible. The fibre reinforced hybrid material is produced of approx. 60% rice husk, 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!
Anyone working with wood will be enthused about Resysta. Like its natural model it can be sawn, drilled, painted, sanded or oiled. However, there is one decisive advantage: Resysta does neither crack nor splinter and its cutting wastes are 100% recyclable. The different profiles of Resysta are produced in an extruderand can be used for many applications.
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design)
was developed by the United States Green Building Council as a certification program for construction companies that wish to build green buildings or retrofit existing buildings to meet better environmental standards. LEED certification is measured in points and it is based on how much a building reduces operating costs and overall impact on the environment.
LEED for New Construction and Major Renovations certifications are awarded according to the following scale: Certified: 40–49 points, Silver: 50–59 points, Gold: 60–79 points, Platinum: 80 points and above
RESYSTA can contribute points as follows: Materials & Resources MR Credit 6 “Rapidly Renewable Materials” – Up to 1 point. MR 5 (based on project location and U.S. production location) – Up to 2 points. Indoor Environmental Quality EQ Credit 4.2 “Low-Emitting Materials: Paints & Coatings” – Up to 1 Point. Innovation & Design Process ID Credit 1– “Innovation in Design” – Up to 1 Point
Sustainable Sites - 26 Possible Points. Water Efficiency - 10 Possible Points. Energy and Atmosphere - 35 Possible Points. Materials and Resources - 14 Possible Points. Indoor Environmental Quality - 15 Possible Points. Innovation in Design - 6 Possible Points. Regional Priority - 4 Possible Points
