Facades combining the advantages of steel with the look of wood

High resistance, natural charm. pladur® Relief Wood offers architects and building owners numerous advantages and special features in terms of both appearance and performance. Here’s a selection:

Surface texture with a natural, wood-like appearance

The material is designed to look like wood, but in building projects it has huge advantages over its natural counterpart. For example, it requires far less maintenance.

High resistance

The thicker coating provides good resistance to weathering. The textured surface is resistant to denting and less liable to contamination than comparable matt, smooth, polyester coatings. In practical use, scratch resistance is high compared with polyester.

Outstanding formability

pladur® Relief Wood can be formed into almost any shape to allow the production of even unusual and custom components. The material is suitable for bending, drawing, press braking, profiling, stamping, and roll forming.

Environmentally aware

Managing environmental impact throughout the product life cycle is an integral part of our work. Our pladur® products comply with the relevant REACH regulations. The organic coatings are completely free of chromates and CMR substances.
