MikronWood Energy-Efficient Composite is a revolutionary material with real wood laminates that offers the weather-resistant, no-maintenance advantages of a composite. The solid-core composite material is a blend of thermoplastic alloy resins that includes both polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and acrylic-based polymers. This unique resin combination can’t absorb moisture, so rot, mold and insects are not an issue. MikronWood is a very stable material that’s ideal in cold, high-heat and high-humidity climates – providing significantly improved thermal performance over other frame materials, including aluminum, fiberglass and wood.
