Standard product features

Material:

Fibre cement concrete.

Fixing:

Screw fixed to timber substructure. For screw fix using 4.8 mm diameter screws, use 4.9 mm drill bit for fixed points and 9.4 mm for sliding. Fixing should be spaced 45–70 mm from horizontal edge and 25–50 mm from vertical edge.

  • Modulus of elasticity (dry): Longitudinal: 14 GPa; transversal: 12 GPa.
  • Modulus of elasticity (wet): Longitudinal: 11 GPa; transversal: 9 GPa.
  • Bending strength (wet, untreated): ≥18 MPa.
  • Bending strength (wet, hydrophobic treated sheet, acrylic coated): ≥24 MPa.
  • Bending strength (dry): Longitudinal: 32 MPa; transversal: 22 MPa.
  • Compressive strength: 40 MPa.
  • Maximum water absorption (untreated): 25±2%.
  • Maximum water absorption (hydrophobic treated sheet): 9±3%.

  • Vapour resistance factor (to EN 12572: 2016): 320 µ.
  • Thermal conductivity (to EN 12664: 2002): 0.42 W/mK.
  • Durability classification (to EN 12467: 2016): Category A.
  • Strength classification (to EN 12467: 2016, untreated sheets): Class 4.
  • Strength classification (to EN 12467: 2016, treated sheets): Class 5.

Durability:

The cement panel is highly durable and includes immunity to permanent water damage in both short and long-term exposure. It will not rot, burn or corrode and is unaffected by termites, air, steam, salt and sunlight. It is not adversely affected over a temperature range of -20 to +60°C.

Product Options

Colour:

Ceramapanel is available in two main colour ranges; the Natural range and the Natural+ range. The Natural + range is a coated finish and gives the colour a deeper, richer tone. This is an alkali- resistant varnish using a UV polymerizing system to make the sheets resistant to graffiti. This allows the panels to be cleaned more easily and maintained for many years. Meanwhile, the Natural range resembles nature’s earth tones and has a much more natural look.
