Resysta for Decking and Siding - HDG Building Materials

Resysta Rice Hull Composite

Resysta is a sustainable product that looks and feels like wood. With a combination of salt, rice husks, and mineral oil, Resysta boasts exceptional material properties and is 100% recyclable. It is a true alternative to hardwoods, including ipe and teak wood.  In fact, it was specifically designed as an option in lieu of teak for high-end outdoor furniture. Resysta has been installed in extreme climates in Austrian Alps, hotels and homes in Florida and Canada, buildings in New York and California, and on the equator in Singapore, as well as installations in Africa – including on Nelson Mandela’s cottage.
