MATERIAL

Characteristics



Woodworkers rejoice! Like its natural counterpart, TruGrain can be sawed, drilled, painted, sanded or oiled. However, there is one decisive advantage when working with TruGrain: it does not crack or splinter, and cutting wastes are 100% recyclable in the manufacturing process. The different profiles of Resysta are produced in an extruder and can be used for many applications.
