ProFi composite is an environmentally innovative material that combines the characteristics of wood fibres and plastic. Manufactured mainly from recycled material, it has proven to be tough and humidity resistant.

The ingredients are clean plastic polymers and wood based fibres which fall as surplus by-products in self-adhesive label manufacture and processing.The proportion of the recycled paper and is always more than 50%. The only added plastic is clean polypropylene. All materials are non-toxic to the environment and no PVC is used.

UPM ProFi is a hard wearing material with low moisture absorption. It is especially well suited for outdoor applications as this composite has a good resistance to UV degradation. It is also virtually free of lignin, the natural wood molecule which turns grey when exposed to sunlight. This material is an ideal solution for outdoor use in garden decks, patios, terrace areas, marinas and boardwalks, as well as many other challenging applications.
