WERZALIT makes use of modern materials that exhibit extremely advantageous properties ranging from durability to environmental friendliness.
Made for a long life
WERZALIT materials pass extreme endurance tests during continuous production, such as swell tests and paint flaking tests. In special climate chambers, the material is subjected to a range of environmental factors and temperature fluctuations between -20 and +70 °C. For instance, test façades in the WERZALIT testing fields have outlasted wind and weather for 30 years. WERZALIT façade profiles are even tested for earthquake safety.
WERZALIT wood material
The proven WERZALIT wood material is used in our balcony and façade profiles, window sills and table tops. The patented manufacturing process combines the natural properties of wood with the resistance of high-quality resins. The coating is indelibly fused with the highly compressed wood material.
S2 wood-polymer composite (WPC)
Terrace products are made of the S2 wood-polymer composite (WPC). With S2, WERZALIT has developed a material that combines the advantages of wood and plastic. It can be worked as easily as wood but has the moulding and flowing properties of a thermoplastic. Extrusion and injection moulding techniques, previously reserved only for plastics, are now also available for wood in the form of S2. S2 has an unmistakeable fibre structure of dyed polymer and wood fibres.
WERZALIT balcony cladding panels are made of multiple cellulose sheets impregnated with resin and pressed into a homogeneous panel. The core sheets lend the panels the durability to withstand further processing. The decor paper is saturated with melamine resin, one of the hardest resins available, and the transparent overlay forms a nearly indestructible surface. The structure of the panel is designed perfectly for use as façade or balcony cladding.
Together with VHI, we are committed to sustainable building via EPDs for WPC decking boards and WPC facade elements at IBU.
