AQUAPANEL® Cement Board Outdoor

AQUAPANEL® Cement Board Outdoor

AQUAPANEL® Cement Board Outdoor is an innovative way to build exterior walls and façades. The board is the ideal exterior render substrate and can be used for many other surface finishes, such as paint or brick slips. It is a robust, non-combustible building panel and helps to form equally strong but significantly thinner structures, which provides more interior space in buildings.

AQUAPANEL® Cement Board Outdoor is made entirely from inorganic materials and withstands even extreme weather conditions. Its flexibility allows the board to be curved, making it a highly versatile building solution.
