Fibercement is a global term which describes the fiber reinforced cement products and commonly used in all the countries around the world. Common feature of these plates is having organic or inorganic (or both) fibers in their structures as reinforcement elements and Portland cement as a bonding member.
Large sized plates that can be used on the interior and exterior facade cladding applications of all kinds of buildings are produced under HEKIMBOARD brand. Plates with 1250 mm standard width are produced in two different lengths of 2500 mm and 3000 mm. Production of non-standard dimensions out of these figures may also be possible. Plates have various kinds in terms of their place of use (interior or exterior applications) and surface appearance.
Plates separated into two categories as interior and exterior according to their place of use are also produced in various surface appearances. Exterior plates specify plates which will be exposed to atmosphere conditions directly. Although their general formulations are largely identical, some chemicals are added to keep thermal expansion values at the minimum level. The plates produced in this category are referred as A-category plates in TS EN 12467 standard. Interior plates are described as plates not expected to be exposed directly to atmosphere conditions. These products described as C category plates in the related standard can be used on the interior facade cladding, as supporting material under roofing material and as backer boards under the tiles in wet areas or as ceiling covering plates.
