What it is, how you can work with it and what are the advantages compared to wood and other wood substitute products.
Made out of a mixture of rice husks, common salt and mineral oil, Resysta contains no wood at all; instead, it makes use of an abundant by-product of rice farming.
Thus, producing the material doesn’t contribute to deforestation. This makes RESYSTA very sustainable and you can even earn points for the LEED certification of your project.

Reasons to choose Siding- or Decking-Profiles made from RESYSTA compared to other materials
Resysta gives the appearance and feel of wood while offering better durability. In accelerated aging tests, it lasted the equivalent of fifteen years without noticeable degradation, exceeding the performance of hardwoods and other materials.
Not only does it feel like wood, but it can be treated, worked and maintained like wood, too. It can be sanded, sealed or stained for enhanced appearance and even repaired when damaged (see our installation guides). It is also extremely resistant to rot, fungal attacks and even termites. Unlike wood, a facade or deck made of this material will not develop splinters, which is a great safety benefit for the users of the buildings.
