Oldcastle APG announced that the company’s composite decking business – formerly Advanced Environmental Recycling Technologies (AERT) – will now operate as MoistureShield.

By adding MoistureShield composite decking and railing products to its portfolio Oldcastle APG said that it is “building on its rich history of growing the best brands in the building and construction industry.”

Brands include Echelon masonry wall systems, Belgard Pavers and Walls, Permacon Hardscapes, Sakrete Bagged Concrete and Amerimix Mortars.

“For more than five decades in North America, Oldcastle APG – has set the standard for products, innovation and related brands that service the outdoor living category. With the acquisition of AERT in 2017, we set out on a new endeavor to bring our blueprint for success to the composite decking marketplace. Today’s name change is more than a new logo – it’s a commitment to our customer base,” Oldcastle APG Executive Vice President Ken O’Neill said.

“We commit to delivering best-in-class composite solutions for our many customer channels… from production, innovation to customer support. Carrying the Oldcastle APG name brings expectations – something we’re excited to exceed now and into the future,” O’Neill added.

The MoistureShield line of moisture-resistant composite decking is manufactured from 95% recycled content, and can be installed directly on the ground, in the ground or under water, Oldcastle APG said.

MoistureShield also features Infuse with a realistic wood-grain finish and ability to withstand total submersion in water; and Vantage, an uncapped composite as the perfect way to affordably step up from wood with the same workability based on its solid core.

Select products within the MoistureShield line are available with CoolDeck technology, which reduces heat absorption by up to 35 percent compared to conventional capped composites.

Oldcastle APG is a subsidiary of CRH plc, based in Dublin, Ireland.
