What is it?
Reystone (Re-Y-Stone) is a bio composite eco material board made from plant based materials, no petrol. It comes in various thickness’s up to 3mm thick boards can be glued to boards such as MDF, chipboard, plywood and other such boards to make furniture or decorative panels for example. The 5mm thick boards can be used by themselves and glued straight on a wall if you want to make a feature wall for example. It comes in various nice earthy, twiggy and stony textures with natural brown and grey colours. They are waterproof and very hard wearing and have a high level of flexibility.
Can be used for making furniture as a natural alternative to Formica or melamine.
What is eco about it?
It is made from plant based materials, no petrol, with recycled materials, paper and natural resin which makes it totally natural for burning at the end of it’s life and so I think it doesn’t pollute any more than wood. Or it can be ground and used as a wood filler, but I imagine you would need to find a way of efficiently removing it off the wood surface that you have glued it to. Lastly it is inert so will not offgass any chemicals, so is great if you don’t want to add more bad chemicals to your home. The fact that it isn’t made with petrol means it is you are not supporting a non renewable material that causes Wars and so much pollution around the World. You can buy it in the UK in sheets of 2440x122omm minimum order 11 sheets from: http://www.brentplastics.co.uk Find out more on the Dekodur website: http://www.dekodur.com/en/reystone-biocomposite-board.html#1 And here: http://www.reystone.de/
