VESTA® (Vegetal Ecological Stable Timber Advantage) is the first eco-material we have created.
It combines the natural stability of wood and the resistance of the stone and contains up to 92% wood fibre.
We collect additive-free sawmill cut-offs (no tree cutting). Thanks to a thermal transformation, the wood becomes rot-proof and waterproof. The resistance is strengthened by adding mineral pigments allowing ultra-stable colours, optimal UV resistance. All other components – binding agent and technical reinforcement – are virgin and assure a healthy and perfectly traceable material, without any solvents or adhesives.
The wood fibre comes from sustainably managed European forests with a low carbon footprint. Those are located within a maximum radius of 400 km encouraging short shipping distances, while controlling our full supply chain.
The eco-material VESTA® has technical reinforcement at its core, giving it strong resistance to:
- mould and urban pollutions in order to avoid depigmentation, stain or surface blackening ;
- parasites and insects ;
- UV rays for a rare colour stability.
Its mechanical characteristics combining lightness, flexibility and solidity allow Neolife® to design solutions with performances that meet the high standards of fire resistance, impacts, wind and earthquakes.
