Alternative material

Hello everyone,
I was walking around my work site and noticed some material that was unfamiliar to me... It's called Azek... It's plastic based, UV proof, high yield to temperature, paintable, and working on it as easy as (maybe easier than)wood... I grabbed some cut out pieces meant to be thrown away, and used it as support beams, core material, backing plates, and shelfing... It's light weight, it actually floats, which may make it a good material for rebuilding my rudder...
As far as price tag goes, it's expensive... However, cheaper than starboard...
I thought some may like to know... Enjoy your sailing...
