• Semi-exposed applications such as eaves, soffits and sunscreens.
• No special equipment is required for cutting or drilling. It is recommended that cutting of the calcium silicate boards be carried out in well ventilated situations or the wearing of suitable dust masks to reduce the hazard of nuisance dust production, during the cutting or drilling process calcium silicate boards may be flat head nailed or pilot drilled then screwed.
• Calcium silicate boards due to their high suction should be first sealed prior to applying paints, plasters, or wallpapers.
