TorZo Surfaces

By: Julie Knight TorZo Sustainable Surfaces out of Woodburn, Oregon has a mission towards environmental stewardship.  In 2008 the company launched the surfacing materials with the idea of sustainability by infusing recycled wood and agricultural by-products with polymer chemistry to create an architectural vertical or horizontal surface material. These infused materials are obtained from post-industrial recycled wood fiber board, wood chip board and recycled wheat, sorghum and hemp. The materials are urea formaldehyde free and either FSC certified or considered rapidly renewable products. The infusion process makes TorZo more water and stain resistant; but as part of the fabrication process a hard sealer and top coat are applied to achieve the water and stain protection. The products have either a Class C fire rating or a Class B fire rating. And a Class B rating can be increase to Class A by applying a standard clear coating.  For example, Sherwin Williams clear coating, Sayerlack, can be applied and will not detract from the original look of TorZo. TorZo has just introduced Denim.  This product is composed of 80% post-industrial denim fabric scraps that are infused with non-toxic acrylic resin. Is TorZo durable?  Yes, in fact, 95% of all TorZo products are in commercial environments such as airports, universities,  libraries, restaurants and grocery stores.  And the panels can be used as paneling, wainscot, signage, cabinetry, table tops, bar tops, conference tables and reception desks.
