JOPLIN, Mo. - Composite wood products manufacturer Tamko Building Products, Inc. launched new colors for its Envision Expression line of capped decking boards. Based on customer feedback, the colors  Harbor Grey, Caribou Brown, Canyon Ridge and Woodland Bark were chosen.
 
"The Envision Expression line provides a distinct option for composite lumber customers that want the unique compressed beauty of the Envision line in a single-color board," said Tamko's senior director of decking, Brian Lowry. 
 
Envision composite wood material is a mixture of wood dust and stone with plastic binders. The material is extruded and then embossed in wood grain patterns. 
 
The contents by weight of Tamko's EverGrain Envision decking (according to an SDS sheet posted at Tamko's site) are 40 to 60 percent wood dust, 40 to 50 percent plastic, and 10 to 15 percent limestone, along with proprietary additives at 5 to 10 percent.
 
The Envision Expression line was introduced in October at the 2016 Remodeling|DeckExpo|JLC Live Show in Baltimore and will begin shipping in January.
