Among Japanese brands, such manufacturers can be mentioned as Kmew, Konoshima and Nichita. A panel and carcass house finished with
panels by leading Japanese manufacturers will serve many generations.
Today, fiber-reinforced cement panels in Japan are manufactured with use of concrete of grade M700 and higher. Besides, manufacturing
process utilizes the state-of- the-art technology of extrusion, which permits to obtain products with the best physical and chemical
parameters. Since fiber-reinforced cement boards of Japanese manufacture contain special components of non-organic origin, frost
resistance of the material increases up to 300 cycles.
ADDITIONAL ADVANTAGES OF JAPANESE BOARDS:
— good sound insulation
— low heat-carrying capacity
— high impact and bending strength
— low weight and easy to install
However, the most important feature of Japanese fiber-reinforced cement boards is their self-cleaning capacity. Molecules of water gather
on surfaces of boards from the air, and form very thin film. Dirt accumulates on top of the molecules and is easily washed away when it
