fibre cement board
WeatherPro. is an autoclaved, moderately compressed fibre cement reinforced calcium silicate board (alias named as compressed fibre cement board in North America) that is 100% free from asbestos, sepiolite, inorganic fibres and formaldehyde. It is developed to withstand external weather conditions as well as hard wearing impact and abrasion, making it long lasting with minimum maintenance costs. WeatherPro. is an ideal, economical solution for use as an external cladding system or lining application in common areas where high impact resistance is required, particularly in potentially damp and very humid situations, such as restaurant kitchens and leisure amenities. It is highly compatible with architectural coating systems for external weatherproof applications. WeatherPro. can be left unpainted. Its special performance of exemplary strength and durability prevents water or moisture penetration. WeatherPro. is a reliable substrate to receive heavy decorative finishes, such as marble or stone tiles. The board is manufactured to ISO 9001 quality management system and ISO14001 environmental management system, and has obtained the Green Product Label Award issued by National Environment Protection Bureau.
WeatherPro. is produced from a mixture of cement, silica sand, special cellulose fibres and selected fillers to impart durability, toughness and moisture resistance. WeatherPro. mixture is compressed to enhance high strength and durability of board that is capable of heavy duty usage. It is then cured by an autoclaving process whereby the ingredients are reacted together under the effects of super-heated steam and high pressure. The synthetic cement silicate binder provides exceptional dimensional stability and an unrivalled resistance to movement due to effects of moisture or heat. WeatherPro. will not rot or support fungal growth and is unaffected by sunlight and steam. The board does not contain any soluble ingredients or free alkali which could be dissolved by moisture or condensation and causing unsightly marks. If exposed to moisture, WeatherPro. will completely recover on drying out, with no permanent loss of strength. The board will not degrade with time and within normal applications, the life of the product is limited only by the durability of the supporting structure and materials used in fastening. WeatherPro. is natural light grey in color and has a high quality top sanded smooth finish on one side and a slightly textured reverse.
