Pentadecor® Films – made of Resysta®
The first Rice Husk & Polymer Composite Film
Pentadecor® Films – made of Resysta® is the first rice husk and polymer composite film. It is less than one millimeter thick and can be laminated on a variety of surfaces. Pentadecor® Films - made of Resysta® meet the growing demand for durable materials for indoor and outdoor applications.
Trends in the market:
For consumers around the world, the question of whether or not products are manufactured sustainably is of great importance. At the same time, they expect high quality and aesthetic design. People expect a natural look that evokes a sense of well-being and comfort – whether relaxing inside their living-room, sitting outside in their garden, or in the outdoor area of a restaurant. Further, customers worldwide expect low-maintenance materials with high life expectancy that are weather- and water-resistant, especially in outdoor applications.
About Pentadecor® Films – made of Resysta®:
Pentadecor® Films – made of Resysta® sets standards in terms of quality and highest aesthetic demands. The films are based on a renewable plant based material. Furthermore, they meet consumers’ demand for a natural appearance: they look and feel like high quality wood, while at the same time being weather- and water-resistant. Today, many manufacturers and retailers are rethinking how they do business: cost-cutting system solutions, lower stock keeping units and sustainable products are in demand. Pentadecor® Films – made of Resysta® is the perfect answer – with new system designs and easy-to-store products. In 2016 the film was awarded with the Red Dot, the international distinction for high design quality.
Developed both for indoor and outdoor applications, Pentadecor® Films – made of Resysta® embodies the positive properties of its two material constituents. The thermoformable natural fiber filled film serves as a wood veneer or WPC alternative. The film – made from rice husks – helps to achieve sustainability goals. Further high quality additives ensure maximum water and weather resistance, flexibility and robustness. In addition, it is sandable to a smooth wooden finish, and can be refined in a variety of colors. A direct pigment application on the surface ensures a long lasting UV-resistance. With this development in the field of natural fiber composites (NFC), the existing converting technologies (i.e. extrusion, injection molding, compression molding) were successfully extended to a new and patented calendering process. The film is available in reels and formats. Considering customers specific needs, further material developments and customization are possible.
