Precision Composites, Inc. has introduced a new line of reversible Royal Wood Trimboards that offer improved aesthetics and performance compared with other trim products made from plastic or wood. The Royal Wood Trimboards are made of wood-plastic composite foamed core capped with a grade of BASF’s Luran S, UV-stabilized acrylonitrile/styrene/acrylate (ASA).

The result is a board with two usable sides that can be cut, nailed and installed like wood, but does not absorb moisture, delaminate or split. The board can also be painted in all colors, light or dark. Exterior trimboards are used for fascia, frieze, corners, rakes, band boards, window/door trim and soffits, which makes them highly susceptible to weathering.

“The polymer construction provides strength, while the wood-filled core gives the trim the properties builders like, such as nailing and screwing without pilot holes,” says Doyle Robertson, market development manager, styrenics, BASF Corporation.
