Fiber cement siding — SHERA
SHERA Board is a non-asbestos fiber-cement product composed of Portland cement, cellulose fiber and refined sand. Using a special manufacturing process called autoclave, SHERA board acquires the strength, durability of cement and easy workability of wood as well as dimensional stability. A non-combustible multi-purpose application fiber -cement flat board, SHERA Board comes with various thicknesses which are suitable for various applications; ceiling, wall, and floor. It can be used for both exterior and interior applications. SHERA Boards can perfectly be calibrated and then laminated or coated with other materials, such as eg. wood veneer.
