NewTechWood is a true game changer in the composite decking industry.
Since 2004, NewTechWood has been at the forefront of the design and manufacture of Wood Plastic Composite (WPC) products to enhance outdoor living. They have solved the problems experienced in the early days of development and come up with a product that is not only extremely hard wearing, but has a natural timber look.
NewTechWood Advanced Capped Composite Material has a strong & durable polymer shield which fully caps the core.
The Core is made of 60% recycled dense wood fibre mixed with 40% high grade recycled plastics (HDPE).
The Shield is made of special engineering grade polymer and additives with extreme low water penetration.
Using a co-extrusion process the shield is heat pressed onto the core creating an impermeable protective barrier against moisture, ultra-violet (UV), insects and bacteria.
Moreover, the extremely durable shield will give maximum protection with:
- Stains Resistance
- Fade Resistance
- No need to oil or paint
This system provides a more durable and longer lasting product, which will provide years of enjoyment with less maintenance over the life span of your deck, screening or wall cladding.
Requiring virtually no care or maintenance you will save time and money. Your NewTechWood boards will look as good as new for years to come.
Aren’t All Composites the Same?
No! NewTechWood uses sophisticated technology to provide the most advanced capping composite product.
Capped Composite Technology
Natural Timber Look
NewTechWood has the most natural looking composite decking on the market.
The latest NewTechWood range uses a treatment on the shield that makes the board visually more matte and gives a realistic fibrous texture.
The fine grained texture gives the deck boards a natural, bare feet feel at home, and there is no danger of splinters.
Part of the beauty of a natural hardwood deck comes from the subtle mix of colour tones and hues; no single board is exactly alike. NewTechWood’s blending of natural tones produces the same wonderful look.
NewTechWood colours are multi-chromatic emulating the variations of colour hues found in natural timbers.
Just like natural timber, NewTechWood product colours may vary between batch to batch. We recommend you view all boards before you start the installation and mix them around for the best result.
Each of our three (3) decking ranges have a combination of double-sided board finishes:
- H1 – Fine brushed finish
- H6 – Wood grained embossed
- H11 – Deep brushed finish
- H9V – Textured weather finish
Fully Capped Around All Four Sides
360 degree complete protection all around the board including the tiny area of curvature and groove area.
Why do we insist on 360 degree capping?
The polymer capping provides a barrier to protect the board from moisture, UV, insects and bacteria attacking the core. As a result the following problems are eliminated:
- No Cupping
- No Cracking
- No Splitting
- No Swelling
- No Fungus or Mould
- No Pests or Termites
Note: Swelling can still occur on the cut ends so it is recommended that the ends that are cut have a sealant or end cap applied to them.
Ultra Low Maintenance
No Oiling, No Sanding, No Painting – just regular cleaning.
To keep your deck, or cladding, or screening looking at its best, all you have to do is clean it off with water and mild detergent when required.
Spend time with your family and friends, enjoying your deck rather than wasting precious leisure time on maintenance jobs.
The care and maintenance of your deck couldn’t be easier.
Friendly to the Environment
Made from 95% recycled materials.
- 40% Recycled HDPE Plastic – Saving 5,440,000 kg of plastic going into landfill every month!
- 55% Reconstituted Timber Fibres – Saving Native forests
- 5% Polymer (the Ultrashield capping)
NewTechWood boards require no staining or sealing, therefore there is no need to use fossil-fuel based chemical stains, oils and sealants required to keep timber decks maintained.
The manufacturer of NewTechWood started off as a plastic recycler in the United States. This experience led them to expand into developing the technology to turn those recycled components into long lasting composite timber products to be used in the construction of homes and buildings.
The manufacturer undergoes annual third party audits to comply with environmental and health & safety guidelines and regulations.
- Made from 95% recycled materials
- Saves Native forests
- Prevents 5,400,000 kg plastic from being dumped in landfill each month
