Modern Facade Materials - The Fiber cement siding

Fibre cement siding — SHERA

 

SHERA Board is a non-asbestos fibre-cement product composed of Portland cement, cellulose fibre, and fine sand. Using a unique manufacturing process called an autoclave, the SHERA  board acquires the strength,  durability of cement, and easy workability of wood and dimensional stability.  A  non-combustible multi-purpose application fibre -cement flat board, SHERA Board, comes with various thicknesses suitable for multiple 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, e.g. wood veneer.
