Durawood is a uniquely extruded plastic board that is lightweight, flexible and extremely durable. It is scratch-free, lightweight, easy to machine and withstands strong impacts. The characteristics of Durawood have made it a popular choice by Toyota, Honda, Nissan and companies in the aerospace and trucking industries for creating durable long-wearing items for part protection, storage, and transport.

Advantages of Durawood

Compared to traditional materials used to make part protection, transport and storage items for industrial applications, Durawood is ideal in many respects. It is noted for being flexible, unbreakable and scratch-free. It is easy to machine and can be pieced together using standard screws. It is an excellent choice for anything requiring sawing or cutting, pressing, punching, drilling and milling with standard tools. Durawood has no sharp edges and it will not splinter. When needed, an ESD (electrostatic discharge) option is available.
