Resysta is a fibre reinforced material that offers the look and feel of wood, but is made of rice husks, salt and mineral oil. It is environmentally friendly, sustainable and extremely weather resistant against the sun, rain, snow or salt water. The possibilities are endless with Resysta!
Resysta takes agricultural waste and transforms it into a durable building product with many applications. Approximately 60% (by volume) of the proprietary formula is rice husks, a rapidly renewable resource in great supply. Calcium carbonate and synthetic plastic polymer combined with the ARF (Active Resysta Filler) at extremely high temperatures yield a product that can be formed to almost any shape or size. Resysta qualifies for third party sustainability certifications based on its renewable resource content and being 100% recyclable in the manufacturing process and after many years of use. Resysta does NOT contain any wood and therefore does not contribute to deforestation. Resysta can be finished with over 30 beautiful water-based stains and sealed to assure color durability.
Have you seen any 10-year-old wood decks lately? Resysta Decking does not crack, splinter or rot. Insects don’t like Resysta material either, so it withstands pest infestation or fungal decay. It is also water resistant, even against saltwater, so its lifespan is considerably longer than wood. Sun, rain, hail, snow and extreme temperatures have minimal impact on Resysta, making it a great choice for any environment in the world. The surface is also slip-resistant.
Unlike its composite counterparts, spot damage on Resysta can be repaired. Any other man made composite product needs to be replaced. Resysta, instead can be sanded, stained and sealed, just like wood. Exceptional durability combined with easy maintenance makes Resysta ownership easy.
The longest list of product attributes means nothing, if the look and feel is all wrong. Resysta’s biggest selling point is aesthetics. This opinion is shared by thousands of architects, designers and home owners who were introduced to Resysta. The material components and extruding process result in a product that is virtually indistinguishable from the tropical hardwoods which are popular in architectural compositions nowadays. Typical applications of Resysta are decking, siding and facades, but it’s well-suited for windows, paneling, shutters, fencing and outdoor furniture. The possibilities are unlimited.
One of the most desirable and appealing features of outdoor designs is a wood or wood-like decking. With the constant exposure to the rough environmental factors, for instance beating sun or driving rain many products, such as local timber, do not withstand the test of time, and the tropical hardwoods are very costly to maintain.
Fortunately all of those problems fade away thanks to Resysta decking, which offers all the benefits of wood without any downfalls. No swelling, no graying, no cracking and no splintering allow customers to enjoy the variety of Resysta profiles with natural look and feel of tropical wood with minimum maintenance required.
For many years siding has been the most traditional form of decorating and waterproofing building walls. Currently the building industry offers several options for this product, but still the most popular remain wood and plastic.
Although visually there are many positive aspects of using siding, every one of them has its disadvantages. Installation of widely preferred wooden siding is followed by costly maintenance that needs to be performed every 4 to 9 years and the plastic siding presents a high environmental cost related to difficulty of responsible disposal.
Therefore fully recyclable Resysta siding is a perfect solution. With the natural look and feel of wood followed by the minimal maintenance requirements it won over the architects, homeowners and contractors all over the USA.
Wall cladding is not only functional, providing protection to the external sections of the buildings, but also significantly increases the aesthetics of the construction.

Wall claddings made of metal, masonry, wood and various composites present a wide variety of options, but nowadays Resysta is the one to definitely consider. Aside from easy installation and low maintenance, the visual effects of the Resysta Wall Cladding surpass the expectations of building designers and architects. This fully recyclable wood-like composite can be stained in over 30 colors, which opens the doors to creating amazing visual effects not offered by any other product on the market.
