Why Resysta?

Resysta outshines in product properties, surface & design, handling, sustainability

RESYSTA exists for more than 20 years

Main reason

In 1996 a new mixture of rice husks and plastic was discovered by the scientist Antonio Siu, which, when dried, shows similar consistency and appearance of wood. Processing and the optics of the newly invented tropical wood substitute was refined.

Resysta has thousands of projects around the world, which for decades have been impressing with consistent appearance. That is why we can afford to provide a limited warranty of 25 years on the Resysta material.


There is no other man-made product in the decking and facade industry which offers a material that wasn’t changed since its conception.

The positive experiences with this sustainable and almost indestructible material gained trust of homeowners, designer, architects and contractors. RESYSTA is used whenever it is important that decks, 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.
Resysta is a true alternative to tropical wood.

It is therefore especially suitable for outdoor use like garden furniture and outdoor decking as well as for wellness and pool areas, where high strain, aggressive weather, temperature and environmental influences take effect.

Furthermore, Resysta products provide for an exceptionally beneficial eco-balance.

In short: Resysta deserves the title »The better wood« in every sense.
