Currently the standard size of lightweight cement panels Commonly found on the market are 1m22 x 2m44 and 1m x 2m with a variety of different thicknesses. Customers can easily choose the product that best suits their criteria. According to assessments, this is considered a material with strong development potential thanks to its advantages and high applicability, especially in wall and floor decoration.

Production process and technical specifications of lightweight concrete panels

Before becoming a finished material, cement panels need to go through a complex production stage.

Production process

As mentioned above, lightweight concrete panels are made from Portland cement, fine Silica sand, wood fibers or Cellulose fibers mixed together. Next, use the large hydraulic steam pressing method and compress with enough force to create a solid connection for the panels according to the predetermined size and thickness.

Immediately after that, insert the plate drying oven at high temperature of 1.300 degrees Celsius to increase bearing capacity, sturdiness as well as bending. Finally push the sheet through the cooling chamber and balance the moisture to flatten the product surface.

The perfect combination of all components has created a material with high durability and perfect beauty. Above all, to ensure that cement panels achieve absolute quality and high aesthetics, the entire production process is strictly inspected by automatic machinery and modern technology from Europe.

Specfication

Before bringing the product to market, cement panels have undergone many quality tests according to international standards. From there, the following data can be given:

  • Fireproof and non-flammable meeting BS 476 Part 5.6 and 7 (British fire and smoke standards).
  • The fire protection system can withstand 1 - 2 hours depending on conditions according to BS 476 Part 20 - 22 standards (British fire and smoke protection standards).

  • The water absorption coefficient is only 34%. When exposed to water, the cement board will absorb and evaporate in hot sun or high temperature conditions.
  • Swelling when soaked in water for 24 hours reaches 0.12%. This is considered a low number compared to many other materials.

Advantages of wall and floor tiling with lightweight cement panels

Let's learn about 5 valuable advantages when using cement panels for wall cladding and flooring in construction right below.

Easy and quick construction

According to construction experts, the use lightweight cement panels has the ability to significantly shorten construction time, reduce total construction costs by 15% to 30% compared to traditional concrete construction methods and can reduce construction time by up to 50%.

Because of these advantages, this is a material that is often widely applied in the construction of prefabricated houses, motel rooms or in the process of expanding and upgrading the floors of the house.

Light-weight

With a weight about 1/3 times lighter than using traditional concrete, this reduces the need for a house foundation structure and reduces construction costs. Normally, building a house's foundation accounts for about 25% - 30% of the total cost of building the entire house. With this savings, you can reduce financial pressure when building or renovating a home.

High durability and good bearing capacity

Thanks to the production process on modern lines, lightweight cement panels Always achieve optimal quality. With super hard properties and the ability to withstand heavy loads of up to 1.300 kg/m2, this product can support strong weight without even strong impacts significantly affecting its durability. .

Absolute water resistance

It is not natural to say that cement panels are the ideal material solution for outdoor construction projects. Because the molecules are tightly linked to form a barrier, but the structure still includes voids, operating in a two-way breathing mechanism. They allow the cement board to be flexible in evaporating water vapor and create outstanding moisture resistance. Therefore, this product can be applied in areas frequently exposed to water such as swimming pools, bathrooms and toilets.
