When the ordinary straw* is endowed with the extraordinary characteristics, XTD XstrawDinary is invented.

*Straw is the general name of the leftover stems from agricultural crops.

As the world is confronted with severe environmental challenges*, XTD, a new RM brand of materials and solutions has found wide application in many fields all over the world, thanks to its sustainability as a wood alternative. It can help to reduce deforestation and protect the environment. Meanwhile, unique and extraordinary material characteristics and advantages such as cost reduction and efficiency improvement have made XTD a new favorite in the market. So, what exactly is XTD?

XTD : A new kind of material

XTD is made using a revolutionary and innovative renewable material technology developed by RM. XTD is composed of up to 95% straw, and can be used as an alternative for wood, thus reducing the need for deforestation and agricultural straw burning.

With the creation of XTD, straw is being utilized on large scale in China for the first time to produce a new material with extraordinary characteristics like moisture and flame resistance, durability, as well as sound and heat insulation. Agricultural straw itself has good plasticity and flexibility, and can absorb printing ink easily. This makes it an ideal candidate for different surface treatments. Since XTD contains no wood or plastic, it uses no formaldehyde additives in its manufacturing process and is not susceptible to termites.

XTD is a new solution

The extraordinary properties of XTD make it widely applicable to fields traditionally dominated by wood and plastic (pallets and packaging, flooring, lifestyle furniture) at a lower cost, with higher efficiency and better performance.

XTD logistics packaging solutions including durable and moisture-resistant pallets, collar box pallets and quick assembly boxes for export purposes, all of which meet all ISPM 15 requirements and EU REACH standards. The pallets need no further fumigation and heat treatment during the cross-border transportation, and all parts can be easily assembled, dismantled and replaced, reducing logistics costs by up to 80% and improving the supply chain efficiency significantly.

The XTD flooring solution addresses many problems of traditional wooden flooring such as formaldehyde emission, warping, buckling, deterioration, and termite infestation. It also improves sound and heat insulation between floors, while its unique texture and ease-of-surface-treatment complement many décor styles.

XTD lifestyle is distinguished by its elegant texture and design. Whether it’s for the bedroom, living room or patio, it has none of the formaldehyde additives found in traditional wooden furnishing products, being fully compliant with US formaldehyde emission standards. XTD is a good choice for customization, thanks to its ease of surface treatment, making your home décor both chic and safe for the family.

XTD is an environmental commitment

We have ten years left to avert catastrophic global climate change*. Uncontrolled deforestation is one of the main causes of global warming, with 15 billion trees worldwide cut down annually, which is about an area equivalent in size to 23 times that of Shanghai. About 700 million tons of straw is also burnt in China every year, contributing to smog pollution while only 33% of it is utilized.

XTD is an ideal alternative to wood as a sustainable and renewable resource. 1.5 ton of straw can be utilized to produce one cubic meter of XTD, saving 18 mature trees and also reducing 1.8 ton of carbon emission. Thanks to its extraordinary qualities and positive role in environmental protection, XTD has been awarded the Green Label by the Singaporean government. As one of the most effective sustainable solutions widely adopted all over the world, XTD makes our life better and more sustainable. It is our environmental commitment.
