A breakthrough in material innovation
MettleWood® addresses some of the world's most intractable environmental challenges, most notably in the built environment.
The process to create MettleWood® is a
20x stronger than wood
The cellulose structure of MettleWood® gives it 5-10x the stiffness of regular wood as well as natural resistance to fire, moisture, and termites.
80% lighter than steel
MettleWood® offers an incredible strength-to-weight ratio with 50% less density than even lighter-weight metals like aluminum.
~50% less expensive than steel
MettleWood® is made from fast-growing wood species – an abundant and renewable resource that can be sourced sustainably and inexpensively.
Suitable for many applications
