SIMOWOOD is the first large-scale sheet made of Resysta®, an innovative hybrid material based on rice husks and a specific type of thermoplastic. Fabrication of this Resysta® material is not in competition with food production; in this case, the rice husks used are waste products.
By roughening the surface, the extruded SIMOWOOD sheets are made to look and feel just like wood. The material can be machined with standard processing equipment, making it as
versatile as wood. What is more, like plastic, the sheets are suitable for thermoprocessing, i.e. they combine the benefits
of both materials in a single product.
SIMOWOOD is highly resistant to external influences such as sun, rain, snow or salt water, and as an alternative to tropical timber it also contributes to the protection of valuable natural resources. In contrast to conventional wood or wood-based products, the material used in SIMOWOOD shows no signs of swelling.
