Advantages to Raficlad Wood are said to include durability and freedom of shape. 

Holland Composites BV (Lelystad, Netherlands) introduces its Raficlad Wood composite panels, which are designed to look like transparent wood. Advantages are said to include durability and freedom of shape. The material is also reportedly UV-resistant; color fast; corrosion-free; resistant to chemicals, air pollution, acid rain and cleaning agents; and easy to clean. Both flat and molded plates in a variety of contours can be cut using a CNC-controlled waterjet. 

Raficlad Wood is available in a variety of motifs and wood colors, flat or with freely configurable shapes from 2-15 mm thick, with a maximum size of 1,500 × 7,800 mm.

    Market trends and tighter budgets are helping to expand the use of composites to repair and replace corrosion-damaged infrastructure — aboveground and underground.

  • The fiber

    The structural properties of composite materials are derived primarily from the fiber reinforcement. Fiber types, their manufacture, their uses and the end-market applications in which they find most use are described.
