Our Vision

TO BE THE LEADING SUPPLIER OF INNOVATIVE CEMENT BOARD SOLUTIONS.

OUR MISSION

WE PROVIDE OUR COSTUMERS WITH HIGH QUALITY, DURABLE, EASY TO USE CEMENT BOARD SYSTEMS THAT ADDRESS THEIR MOST CHALLENGING APPLICATIONS.

Cement is the most suitable binder material for making products which will be exposed to water, high levels of humidity, strong impacts and the elements.

Plasterboards are used extensively in the construction markets but they are not the best product for all applications. Gypsum loses its integrity and deteriorates when exposed to water and high humidity (cement does not). Paper facers act as nutrients that support mold growth. Organic chemicals can improve the wet performance of plasterboard but only on a temporary basis. Prolonged exposure to moisture will lead to degradation.
