RESYSTA exists for more than 20 years
In 1996, the Hong Kong chemist Antonio Siu discovered a new mixture of rice husks and plastic, which, when dried, shows similar consistency and appearance of wood. Together with Bernd Duna, he refined his process and the optics of the newly invented tropical wood substitute.
Resysta already has thousands of projects around the world, which for years have been impressing with the unchanged appearance. That is why we can afford to provide a warranty of 25 years for the residential projects and 15 years for the commercial.
The positive experiences with this sustainable and almost indestructible material gained trust of home owners, designer, architects and contracters. RESYSTA is used whenever it is important that terraces, facades and surfaces look good and last long, with little maintenance.

Resysta material impresses with its unique properties not only with longevity but also in feel, look and the diversity of potential applications for decking and facade design.
Many other reasons why...
Due to the high material density Resysta is especially resistant to rain, snow and ice. Does not swell, splinter, shrink or crack. Resysta differs from other materials. Lignin is the substance that causes wood to gray when exposed to weather influences. Resysta does not contain any wood components and will therefore not gray.
Thanks to certified durability classification 1 against fungal decay – RESYSTA meets highest demands in this regard.
»Resysta is extremely resistant and features an excellent eco-balance «
Technical and ecological assessment of the Resysta material:
Resysta looks like wood and stands out for its high mechanical strength, thermal stability as well as chemical resistance.
Unlike wood, Resysta is swell-, splinter and crack-free, does not gray or fade and withstands pest infestation. Therefore Resysta products are very durable and don’t require special care or maintenance.
