What is Fiber Cement Board?

HekimBoard Fiber Cement Boards

In the today’s conditions, construction sector needs a lot of special features like fire resistivity, weatherability, water resistance, sound insulation, heat insulation and appearance. Modern architectural manner needs prompts us to get advanced products.
In the early part of twenty century, fibercement is developed by Hatschek and has been used many application field for hundered years all around the world.
The cement board (or fibercement) mainly contains cellulose fibres, silica and portland cement. Fibercement sheets being produced by autoclave method, particularly in the form of a flat plate to be used as internal and external cladding material and began to put on the market as having a different surface appearance.

The most popular cladding material (fibercement) has got many textureds like wood, natural stone, brick, walnut tree, mixed stone, wood grooved, stone mansory ect.

Hekim Yapı is first timer regarding to produce fibercement board in the early 2000s at Turkey. Hekim Yapı is one of Hekim Holding group companies and it generates the Hekimboard branded fibercement sheets since 2001.

Eco-Friendly Fiber Cement Sheets

Cement board does not contain anything harmful to the environment and on human health. It has not got gas-emission, tie in with climatic conditions or in time. Fibercment siding is quite durable due to ingredients. The boards are prodused under the high pressure and high temperature during the otoclave operation. It does not effected by ultraviolet light. Fibercement resists to chemicals as well with out decalcifiers. Essipecial, it is very durable to alkalies. Seasonal variation are not important parameter for cement boards in any places of entire world.

Water-Resistant Fiber Cement Sheets

Expansion ratio is the lowest level more than similar products. The facade boards definitely does not efected by water. It can use as perfect solutions for building which has got this kind of problems. Their water absorption ratio is lower than reinforced concrete building. Actually fibercement sheets are not in esence insulator material in single-handed however the boards provide fantastic heat insulation and sound insulation.

A1 Class Incombustible Fiber Cement Sheets

Fibercement board is fireproof. It has got A1 certificate which can valid in international markets. During the A1 test, observed and established that Hekimboard could resist to fire for 120 minutes. Board density is approx 1300 – 1400 kg/m. An average of 10mm cladding fibercement are used in thickness. However, instead of plaster it was fibercement, in that case we would need 30 – 40mm parget. And sould not to forget that parget shelf weight is 2000 kg/m. Fibercement is lighter than plaster cladding . In plastered building work negligible in terms of the risk of earthquakes leads to weight gain . Only for thermal insulation made of 2 layers of plaster jacketing process is performed and ultimately covering more than fibercement load from the front. Summaries are adding a risk of earthquakes in fibercement additional terms covering the building.Fibercement multiple sheets can be painted with any water based acrylic paint easily if desired.

Fibercement sheets of any nature as the interior and exterior coating materials and can be easily used in almost every detail of the building. Shaped sheets with desired dimensions can be used as all or administered as fugal . Fugal plates laid at various line intervals to provide different views. The most common areas of application can be summarized as follows.

Fiber cement sheet can be used as interior and exterior cladding material on all kinds of constructions and on every detail of a building. The sheets can be used in full or can be shaped in the required dimensions or applied with joint gaps. Sheets with joint gaps are laid in various line spaces. Most common fields of application are as follows:

  • All work on the interior and exterior coating materials
  • The sandwich panels as partition wall elements
  • The board fugal all kinds of interior and exterior as a decorative coating material
  • As a suspended ceiling element (6 mm)
  • Multi -storey pre- engineered building material on the mezzanine floor ( 16 mm)
  • The support staff under the roofing material ( instead of OSB)
  • Under the ceramic material wet areas
  • On concrete pavement as flooring material ( no need for grout application)
  • As a decorative coating that gives the appearance of wood indoors ( paneling application)
  • Under fringe and facade lining as coating materials
  • The Ready facing elements cladding
  • The floor material in billboards
  • As a partition wall in wet areas ( PP slides coated form )
  • The jambs of doors and windows in the exterior edge
  • The corner element in fibercement siding application
  • As composite components with various coating materials
  • The sandwich panels with various insulation materials
  • As a decorative element in the garden surface veil
