Cement boards developed in an environmentally friendly manner and available as “Tongue and Groove” panels. The core is cementitious based backer board with a recycled fiber cement mix top layer. The secret of these panels is a special oil layer, to improve quality. Also a special glue was used to safely and strongly bond the layers. The glue is an MS base with pieces of 3 mm recycled rubber granulate.
The result is a weather and fire-proof board that stays mould free. The particular ingredients used mean the Concreate panel is partly renewable, which is a major step forward for concrete materials.
Using different amounts of filler material means the boards have increased flexibility. The technology used is all proprietary. The goal of this new procedure is to ensure that no illegally harvested wood is used.
The top layer is waterproof, fireproof and chemically resistant. Applications are interior and exterior, and any number of colours are available. The collection also has a variant with an oak top layer lamintaed onto the core.
