Recently, a shortage of timber supplies and inflated prices caused by the COVID pandemic and seasonal bushfires has inspired architects, designers and specifiers to consider alternative solutions. In the past, the first generation of composite timber gained a reputation as an inferior alternative to natural, harvested timber. Thanks to sophisticated new capping technology, modern composite products not only outperform natural timber in terms of durability and low maintenance, but they are also sustainable.
In A New Generation of Timber Composites: A Guide to Specifying High Quality Composite Timber for Modern Builds and Renovations, we catch up with the latest developments in composite technology and highlight the architectural benefits of modern composite timber. We discuss how modern manufacturing techniques, specifically capping technology, have overcome the shortcomings of early-stage timber composites. We also consider why composite timber is a valuable alternative to natural timber in today’s market. Finally, we provide guidance on choosing the best composite timber for your next project.
Since 2004, NewTechWood has been at the forefront of the design and manufacture of wood-plastic composite products to enhance outdoor living. NewTechWood uses sophisticated technology to provide the most advanced capping composite product on the market that is resistant to moisture, UV, insects and bacteria. This advanced capped composite material has a strong and durable polymer shield which fully caps the core, a look and feel that rivals natural timber and is backed by strong environmental credentials.
With recent supply shortages and inflated prices reminding the design and construction industry that timber is a finite resource, it is time to consider the latest generation of composites. Download this whitepaper to learn more.
