Royal Group Technologies is developing a new composite building material that uses natural fibres encapsulated with cellular PVC and is capped with weather-safe thermoplastic resin. It is branding the new material as Celucor.

“”Royal Group has patented the unique process used to manufacture Celucor and is bringing this innovative material to high-end home exterior product markets, which include decking, porches and a full complement of product lines,”” said Peter Kotiadis, Director of Sales and Marketing for decking, fencing, and railing at Royal Group. “”Celucor gives residential builders and homeowners an optimum material for achieving the traditional, long-lasting, finished appearance of imported hardwood.””

According to Royal Group, Celucor’s optimal fibre content and refined encapsulation process eliminates common issues associated with first generation composite materials, particularly water absorption and mould growth. It also maintains that its manufacturing process allows for more consistent colour and shadings throughout the entire plank. Celucor will be available in Natural, Golden Oak, Mahogany, and Weathered Gray. These colours are carefully selected to compliment all exterior siding decor.
