Fibre Cement Boards are used for different building applications such as; ceiling/soffits, internal linings, external cladding,
Over clad Panels, and external in – fill Panels.
Fibre cement is manufactured from Portland cement, finely ground sand, treated cellulose fibre and water.
It does not contain asbestos.
Manufacturing Process Fibre cement is manufactured using Germany process, which involves building up a number
of laminations of a slurried mix of the core ingredients on a large steel cylinder, known as the size roller. When the
desired sheet thickness is achieved, the “green” sheet is cut away and deposited on a conveyor, where it is trimmed to
size, then stacked and left for a short period of pre-curing.
The final curing, which is made in a high pressure steam autoclave, changes the chemical structure of the
cement/silica/sand matrix to produce highly durable and strong fiber cement products.
