Molded Lumber

Tangent’s Structural Materials are engineered and designed to meet a wide variety of applications and structural requirements. Tangent’s Structural Molded products are created using our proprietary hard tool process, which creates an exceptionally strong and durable product.

Available in multiple reinforcement levels to meet load bearing requirements in light and heavy-duty structural applications, our Structural Molded products are strong enough to withstand even the most extreme weather conditions and environments.

Our molded products can be engineered with fiberglass strands or fiberglass rebar to increase strength and rigidity. This material is best suited for projects that require wider spans and dimensional stability. While our molded products are exceptionally strong due to the hard tool manufacturing process, there are some restrictions on lengths and finishes available.
