Miura Board™ is the most durable 100% recycled alternative for decking, siding, underlayment, and ground protection mats
Miura Board™ can be nailed, drilled, cut, routed, laminated, and sanded just like wood; however, it can also be water-jet, laser cut and welded- like a metal, which opens up enormous opportunities in the siding, decking, roofing, reusable concrete forming, and marine applications.
Unlike WPCs (wood-plastic composites), Miura Board™ contains no wood or any other organic ingredients susceptible to attack by fungi. For this reason, it does not require to be capped as WPCs do. This results in greatly increased durability and improved resistance to abrasion and impact, which is ideal for heavy traffic outdoor applications in high humidity coastal and tropical environments, as well as in harsh winter conditions. It will not swell, crack, splinter, split or delaminate, and is unaffected by termites, fungi, etc.
Miura Board™ is a novel material at the intersection of plastics, metals, and wood. It exhibits remarkable properties in that it has better strength than conventional plastics, reduced thermal expansion, good sound insulation properties, and improved resistance to crystallization at low temperatures. It can also be recycled 100%.
Miura Board™ can be made in a wide range of formulations, from as little as 10% carpet backing to as high as 70%, depending on the desired properties of the finished product. It’s literally possible to “tune” the finished product on a scale of rigidity and surface smoothness. The color can be controlled by adding pigments or by pre-selecting the plastic scrap according to color. The continuous extrusion and lamination allow for any desired length while the thickness can be adjusted from ¼” to 2”.
