Eovations, LLC, an affiliate of Universal Forest Products, offers Eovations extruded oriented technology, a patented process producing a fully fiberized thermoplastic-mineral composite that replicates the fibrous structure of wood and creates a unique combination of strength, durability, aesthetic and workability properties. The company says the composite material is a strong candidate to replace wood, wood-plastic composite, plastic and metal in a wide range of structural and nonstructural applications, including pallets. Composite material made with this technology can stand up to shifting loads, vibration, scrapes, impact, water and more. The material will not harbor insects, an important requirement in many international and domestic shipping applications. Other uses include truck beds, utility trailers, temporary road beds and rig mats, signage, and specialty crating.
