Fiber cement panel
The fiber cement panel is old and well know building product invented by Austrian Ludwig Hatschek in the 1890’s. He combined cellulose, reinforcing fibers and cement in solution in water.
PVA fibers have long since replaced the mineral fiber, and other solids are now added to the slurry to furnish different performance characteristics.
Color could be incorporated on the surface or in the slurry and extra curing is also undertaken to improve strengths and speed up the process
I can use fiber cement panel for any design ideas from traditional to modern style. The wide range of colors and textures is making my choice easy. U-kon Systems provide simple and flexible installation.

U-KON System Solutions permit safe, affordable implementation of creative projects due to their flexibility and user-friendliness.
Thanks to multi-axial adjustability, unevenness of the attachment foundation does not become an obstacle. With our systems diversity, we offer ideal solutions for all cladding materials and their particular application areas.

The main performance of fiber-cement as a building material is Fire resistant, rot resistant, durability and low weight.
Fiber cement panel has lightweight
During curing material gets harder, providing concrete like strength but at a much lower weight. Fiber-cement is faster to install and less energy intensive in production, saving cost.
Protection against rot and humidity
The mix of raw material and matrix structure of fiber-cement also provides excellent durability. Fibre cement is not susceptible to mold or rot damage, therefore, exceeding the longevity of wood, it doesn't contain metals so will not corrode and collapse like steel and has low thermal conductivity so will not change in the presence of heat like plastic
COLOUR THROUGH PANELS
Cladding panels combine the textured nuances and natural characteristics of the base board with a long lasting performance of the transparent top coat.
The color added to the fiber cement reveals and highlights the fibers and other raw materials that provide its strength and character.
