What is Ecolegno


Composite wood is often referred to as Wood Plastic Composite (WPC) and Ecolegno by Saimex is no exception to this. This extremely innovative material combines the pleasing look of traditional wood with the possibility of tailoring the shapes and colours to meet the customer’s needs due to the polymer component. It is completely maintenance-free and enduring, resisting exposure to the sun or snow.

It can be used for exterior flooring, wall cladding, facades, louvers, pergolas, canopies and railings and fences. Ecolegno by Saimex usually comes in the form of pavers and boards assembled on the basis of their end use. It won’t splinter like traditional wood and doesn’t transmit heat so you can enjoy the feel of it barefoot.



So, what is the composition of Ecolegno by Saimex? It is made from 65 percent FSC-certified wood fibre and wood flour. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international non-profit organisation established to promote responsible management of the world’s forests.
