New Composite Outperforms Wood, other Composites

WoodworkingNetwork informs MHProNews that Universal Forest Products, Inc. (NASDAQ:UFPI) has developed a “fiberized thermoplastic-mineral composite that replicates the fibrous structure of wood.” It’s durability, strength, stability, aesthetic, and workability are equal to or better than wood, and improves upon the strength of wood-plastic composites. Eovations, as it is called, can replace wood, wood-composites, plastic and metal anywhere there is a need for lighter, longer-lasting material, such as in furnishings, construction, landscaping structures, railroad ties, boat docks, and recreational equipment. Claude Brown of Eovations says, “The material can be machined, milled, cut and drilled using basic carpentry skills and common woodworking tools,” Brown says. “Fastener acceptance and hold is excellent using conventional nails, screws and staples. Variations of the composite readily accept common paints, allowing durable, attractive finishes to be applied during product manufacturing or in the field.” UFPI is a major component supplier to the MH industry.
