Cemboard is a rigid, medium density, high performance
cement building board which combines the strength and durability of a
concrete product with the workability of timber. This board retains its
integrity and properties after being subjected to many cycles of
soaking, freezing and heating.
Cemboard is classified as a Class’O’
building material and it can be used in the construction of fire
resistant building elements. Cemboard fire rated partition systems have
been tested in accordance with BS 476: Part 22:1987 (Methods for
determination of fire resistance of non-load bearing elements of
construction). 1 and 2-hour fire rating systems are available to cater
for most local building regulation requirements.
This board is also
classified as a sheathing and acoustic building board. The product is
used extensively as an outer sheathing board onto metal and timber frame
structures, behind the outer cladding finish.
Cemboard can be used
for a variety of general purpose applications: behind external cladding
systems as a sheathing board, or in acoustic applications in walls,
floor and roof structures.
Cutting Drilling and Nailing
can be cut, drilled, nailed and worked in a similar fashion to timber
and chipboard with standard wood working tools, but offers a much longer
performance life. It can be cut easily on site with tungsten carbide
Cemboard has a smooth surface which can be
coated with minimum preparation. Alkali resisting paints can be applied
directly on to the board. For other types of paint, an alkali resisting
primer should be applied first.
Cemboard can be
virtually maintained for free and so this board provide a real cost
