Recycled Denim is for more than just comfy jeans

TorZo Denim 1

Old jeans are taking on new lives. Creative minds have used them to make purses, furniture and insulation. Now the Oregon-based company TorZo has created a good looking surfacing product made from 80 percent post industrial recycled denim scraps.

“Denim” utilizes a nontoxic acrylic resin infusion process to penetrate the denim board. This produces a hard, durable product that’s resistant to scratches and abrasions. Measuring 2 feet. wide, 4 feet. long and 1/2-inch thick (including a plywood backer board), the product is perfect for ceilings, wall paneling, table- and countertops, furniture, walls and other horizontal surfaces in both commercial and residential applications.

Available in its natural blue jean indigo hue, each panel varies in color and appearance. The company offers it in two surface treatments – one finished without filling surface spaces, giving it a more rustic, textured appearance,and the other filled and sanded, which eliminates most of the surface voids. The infusion process allows Denim to be cut, fabricated and machined with standard tooling.

Sustainable, easy to fabricate and easy to care for, this fashionable, stylish surfacing material – which qualifies for LEED credits – will be both a conversation piece and handsome addition to any home, building or lifestyle.
