Signage – advertising – decoration made from … rice husks!

Semios yellow decoration

Created by our Sign’Lab

Sign’Lab, Semios’ in-house laboratory dedicated to researching innovative solutions, has tested a new versatile material based on rice husks.
Within the framework of research, reflection and discussions carried out by the Sign’Lab eco-design team, this rice husk-based product was identified as an ecological alternative with extremely interesting properties and potential for our business!

Enseigne Semios en cosse de riz

A 100% recyclable product

This natural and durable fibre product is made up of 60% rice husk (food industry waste), 22% rock salt and 18% mineral oil. It has an unmistakeable woody appearance!

Tested and approved!

At its production plant in Brittany, Semios subjected this material to various tests for applications strictly related to the signage industry. The results are conclusive in every respect:

  • Cutting and milling: dense but soft material. Can be cut and sanded very easily. Chips are recoverable and recyclable. Supports engraving very well.
  • Shaping by thermoforming: very good shape retention. No distortion of the edges during shaping.
  • Shaping by gluing and screwing: very good penetration of screws, very good permeation and bonding with gluing
  • Surface coating: printable, adhesive and paintable without special pretreatment
  • Robust, both indoors and outdoors: highly resistant to UV, water and temperature changes
