Minerit HD (Heavy Duty) facade boards are extremely well suited to both new buildings and the renovation of old buildings. Minerit HD is a safe construction material for facades, balconies and footings and for agricultural construction. Minerit HD's smooth, natural gray and even-quality surface allows effective staining or painting if desired, but does not require any surface treatment.
Minerit HD is a Finnish product that is made of clean and non-hazardous raw materials. As a Finnish product, Minerit HD is designed to withstand wear and extreme weather conditions of the north, such as major temperature and air humidity fluctuations. In addition, Minerit HD boards are non-combustible.
Minerit HD is available in 4 by 8 foot and 4 by 10 foot sheets, with a standard thickness ranging from 1/4" to 3/8".
Specially developed for exterior cladding, Minerit HD is strong, durable and able to withstand extreme climatic and working conditions. Its smooth, cement gray surface provides the perfect base for a variety of finishes and composite panels.
Cembrit Patina comes in 11 subtle colors. The natural authenticity of the Cembrit is expressed through the slight color variations in the surface, imbuing your facade with the play of light and nuances you associate with any natural building material. Over time, these natural variations may develop further as the surface patinates.
The combination of advanced coloration techniques and fiber cement production expertise allows Cembrit to offer a 15 year durability warranty.
The board is available in 7 carefully selected popular colors.
Cembrit Solid comes in 16 natural yet intense URBANNATURE colors inspired by the universe and named after the colorful planets in the skies above. Among the standard colors, you find the blackest color in the entire URBANNATURE range. This color is named after the darkest planet ever discovered, also known as Erebus after the Greek god of darkness. If you wish to add an even more unique expression to your facade, Cembrit Solid allows you to combine one of the nine baseboards with most NCS-S colors.
Solid is available in 1250 by 2500mm, 1250 by 3050mm, 1200 by 2500mm, and 1200 by 3050mm sheets, with a standard thickness of 8mm

AFC Cladding is committed to providing the highest quality high density compressed fiber cement panels to the U.S. building markets. In order to do this, we feel it necessary to provide not only high quality products, but sustainable products that can contribute to green (LEED) building projects, which in turn benefit the environment we all live in. AFC Cladding products currently have a potential contribution to various LEED credits including but not limited to:
Materials and Resources:
Indoor Environmental Quality:
Energy and Atmosphere:
One of the most important sustainable attributes is the durability of AFC Cladding panels. With their long lifespan, virtually requiring no refurbishment, AFC Cladding panels can contribute to less replacement of materials and to drastically lower maintenance costs over the useful life of the building. The Ventilated and Insulated Rain Screen Cladding (VIRSC) system, which is used to affix AFC Cladding panels to the exterior of a structure, offers many benefits and green attributes to the performance of the building envelope. Durability and resistance to moisture and mold build-up are noteworthy benefits. Equally important is its ability to accommodate external insulation.
In addition, AFC Cladding is dedicated to further research and analysis of our products to achieve additional LEED credits, and help further the cause of building sustainable and efficient buildings.
