Why MoistureShield?

The perfect fusion of beauty and toughness, MoistureShield composite decking not only shields against moisture and the elements, we protect your outdoor living space from much more. We defend against the ordinary.

Innovation and craftsmanship drive all that we do.  Our unique manufacturing process totally encapsulates natural wood fibers in polyethylene plastic.  This delivers extremely durable decking that can even have direct ground contact.  Plus our planks are extruded and allowed to cool slowly, which produces a long-lasting deck board with minimal expansion and contraction.  MoistureShield composite decking is non-toxic and doesn’t require staining, painting or sealing.

Our family of great composite decking products offers you the right options to fit your style and budget while enjoying the great outdoors.


MoistureShield is owned by parent holding company Advanced Environmental Recycling Techinolgies, Inc (AERT).  Founded in 1988, the company develops and commercialises technologies to recycle waste polyethylene plastics and develops, manufactures and markets value-added, green building products.  The majority of the products by AERT are composite building materials that are a superior replacement for traditional wood or plastic products for exterior applications in building or renovating homes and for industrial or commercial building purposes.  Our products are made primarily from approximately equal amounts of recycled polyethylene plastic waste and wood fiber, which have been cleaned, sized and reprocessed utilising our patented and proprietary technologies.  Our products have been extensively tested and are sold by international companies such as the Lowe’s Corporation in the USA, UPM in Europe and MoistureShield in Africa.  Our products are primarily used in renovation and remodeling by consumers, homebuilders and contractors as an exterior environmentally responsible (“green”) building alternative to traditional wood decking.

AERT currently manufacturers all of our composite products at extrusion facilities in Springdale, Arkansas and we operate a plastic recycling, blending and storage facility in Lowell, Arkansas, where we also lease warehouses and land for inventory storage.  We also operate a plastic recycling, cleaning and reformulation facility at Watts, Oklahoma.
