Fibre cement cladding is a long-standing solution of choice for savvy architects and designers due to its durability, fire performance and maintenance-free benefits. It’s aesthetic also offers a unique and natural concrete look for contemporary buildings that designers love.

What is through colour fibre cement?

Fibre-reinforced cement is an attractive, resilient construction material that’s ideal for all kinds of exterior and interior protective surfaces. The inclusion of meticulously researched, carefully engineered polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) and specially selected cellulose fibres into the cement-based material provides a unique combination of lightness, technical performance and exceptional strength. When colour is added, it makes the surface colour flow through the panel’s core, making it perfect for seamless edging and cut-outs.

Introducing Cembrit

Atkar Group are excited to introduce Cembrit into the Australian market. As one of the leading manufacturers of through colour fibre cement façade systems in Europe, they are known for delivering a superior and beautiful product.

With two unique finishes, Patina and Solid, Cembrit can be used as external cladding or as an internal lining, providing the raw and natural characteristics of cement with a smooth or lightly sanded texture.

Cembrit Patina – natural surface

With a beautiful and natural coloured surface, Patina boards have a raw textured look and feel. The natural ageing of the fibre cement leaves subtle changes on the surface, and the façade will gradually acquire a distinctive ‘patina’ over time.
