Cembrit Cempanel and Multipurpose are class 0 cement bonded particle boards with excellent impact, fire and acoustic properties.
Cempanel is an exterior and interior cement particle cladding and lining board that combines the strength of cement with the flexibility of timber. It is resistant to changes in heat and moisture. This quality makes Cembrit Cempanel fire resistant and a good thermal insulator. Cempanel provides a certified fire resistance: it is classified as class 0 material passing the 1 hour and 2 hours fire rating test according to BS 476 Part 22.
Cembrit Cempanel is produced by mixing eucalyptus fine wood particles, Portland cement and mineralising agents. Cempanel structural stability makes an ideal carrier board for insulated render as well as for large or small format coated cladding systems.
Insects will not attack Cempanel because the wood particles are immersed in cement. Fungi cultures do not develop on it because of its alkaline nature. Thanks to its heat insulation properties Cempanel helps by reducing energy bills for both heated and air-conditioned area.
Cembrit Cempanel Main Applications include External cladding (Substrate), Infill panels, High impact lining, Wall acoustic linings, Floor acoustic linings and Roof acoustic linings.
Multi-purpose has been ‘autoclaved’ – which means cured under high pressure. This makes multipurpose a stronger board, with increased density and dimensional stability. Multi-purpose can accept alkali resistant paints or emulsions without the need for primer coats, and can also accept bonded mineral or polystyrene insulation.
The durable and easy to work with properties of the Cembrit Multipurpose board allows its applications to be multipurpose. Can be used as a carrier board for insulating foam, external cladding, panel infills, sound control lining for floors, walls and roofing.
