A sustainable material that looks and feels like wood, has the same versatility as wood in terms of processing and is pliable as plastic - the essential features of SIMOWOOD made of Resysta®. SIMOWOOD is the first large-scale sheet made of Resysta®, an innovative hybrid material based on rice husks and a specific type of thermoplastic.

In contrast to conventional wood or wood-based products, the material used in SIMOWOOD is resistant to moisture, i.e. there are no signs of swelling. Furthermore, it is weather-resistant and offers the benefit of anti-slip properties when wet (highest level of slip resistance, category C as per DIN 51097). This makes SIMOWOOD the perfect material for a wide range of applications in the boatbuilding industry - offering plenty of scope for creative design.

Alongside a standard sheet, SIMONA offers a low-flammability product - in thicknesses from 4 to 8 mm - that complies with the regulations of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO). SIMOWOOD IMO therefore fulfils the requirements for use as a material in bulkheads, walls, ceilings, linings and flooring within the commercial shipbuilding industry.
