Novowood is a composite material (WPC), 70% made of wood natural fibers and 30% made of Polyethylene. It can be used for products of different shapes and colors, still maintaining the elegance of wood and the advantages of a not completely natural material.
Wood Plastic Composite Bridge
Completed the paving with wood composite Novowood of the Via Alberto Kecher's bridge, in Lignano Sabbiadoro (Italy). Preassembled panels with metal substructure and slats in WPC Novowood applied on the skeleton of the bridge. The choice of the composite material is the result of the need to maintain high quality standards over time, even in aggressive marine environments.
