Timbrex Renamed Trex
The recycled plastic and wood fiber composite lumber product (reviewed in EBN
) that began as Rivenite and later became Timbrex has a new name yet again. Mobil Chemical Company’s Composite Products Division, maker of the material, is now calling it “Trex™”. The change results from a trademark conflict over the Timbrex name, according to unofficial reports from the company.
