Eovations™ technology is a patented, proprietary extrusion/drawing process that combines mineral particles with a thermoplastic matrix. The process yields lineals of a fully fibrous and molecularly-oriented composite system that accurately replicates wood's fibrous network and structure. Densities between 0.5g/cc and 1.0 g/cc can be achieved with excellent control; no blowing agents are used. A variety of thermoplastic polymers may be used with Eovations technology and, along with the wide processing windows the process affords, a very wide range of targeted final properties can be achieved. As experience is gained with an expanded list of polymers and minerals, the versatility of the manufacturing technique continues to be demonstrated and new performance options created.
