A GIFT OF NATURE
Re-Holz aims to introduced a weather- and water-resistant material with the look and feel of precious wood. Material obtained from renewable raw material, resistant to water, sun, wind and cold and that does not splinter – even after many years. A material which is saving resources and always features consistent high quality. Resysta is extremely resistant and has an exceptional eco-balance. Made from rice husks, (an agricultural raw material, which has so far not been used worldwide) it sets new standards in terms of sustainability. The haptic impression is very pleasant and the possibilities almost infinite. Resysta is available in many different formulations. Resysta is IMO (International Marine Organisation)-certified in the required fire protection and Resysta veneer has recently won the Red Dot Award.
During the last 50 years (1960-2010), global demand for wood consumption has increased from 1.5 billion m3 to 4.5 billion m3 that leads to the increase of deforestation. Deforestation, like any other global problem, has also become an issue in Indonesia. In 2012, Indonesia had the highest rate of deforestation in the world, losing approximately 840,000 hectares of forest.
Resysta is invented to replace tropical wood for industrial use, such as mouldings and joinery, and furniture manufacturing purpose. The fiber reinforced hybrid material is produced of approx. 60% rice husk, approx. 22% common salt and approx. 18% mineral oil, making it recyclable and environmentally friendly. Resysta is the best alternative available for tropical wood. Compared to WPC (Wood Plastic Composites) that still has the plastic-feel to it, Resysta does not only look like wood, it also feels like wood.
