Fibre cement products offer numerous advantages over other traditional materials such as wood siding: they are weatherproof, fire and termite resistant, flexible, highly workable and durable, especially autoclaved fibre cement products. In an autoclave, calcium silicate based composites are manufactured by applying intense heat and pressure to enhance chemical reaction between cement and silica to form fibre cement composite materials. This leads to fibre cement composites with superior properties than air-cured fiber cement composites, for example strength and toughness, low moisture movement, low alkalinity, high fire resistance and good workability. In addition, pigment can be added to make fiber cement products of various colors.
