ACRE? is a composite lumber alternative that is 100% sustainable and made from upcycled rice husk fibers, a rapidly renewable resource. Its manufacturing process is zero-waste and uses no tree-related materials. 100% waterproof ACRE sheets will not rot, crack, splinter, or warp and resists both pests like termites and fungal growth. Less damage from wear and weather over time leads to fewer replacements and less overall maintenance, ensuring a longer lifespan compared to wood in both indoor and outdoor settings. ACRE? is made through a zero waste process and does not contain phenol, formaldehyde, adhesives, or any plasticizers. Unlike wood, ACRE? is thermoformable and may be recycled after use.

ACRE? shares many of the same applications as wood and similar composite materials. It may be used for decks, patios, trims, side paneling, cabinetry, fencing, furniture, and flooring. Its thermoformability allows it curve and bend as necessary for projects or components like arches, facades, and art pieces. ACRE? can be digitally printed and finishes like natural wood when used with stains, oils, paint, coatings, or glazes.

Interstate Advanced Materials offers ACRE? in full sheets.
