THE PRODUCT
Versapanel is a cement bonded particle board comprising of wood particles and cement.
Versapanel is smooth in texture and light grey in colour with a smooth hard surface.
Versapanel is a T2 cement bonded particle board and is intended for use in both internal and external situations, type T2 boards have very high levels of performance in the presence of moisture and have a high resistance to fire.
Versapanel is a versatile material that is suitable for a wide range of applications and represents an advantage in building board technology to meet increasingly stringent building regulations and demands for ever higher standards of durability, safety and economy.
Versapanel contains no hazardous volatiles, is asbestos and formaldehyde free, non toxic and its process dust is non aggressive and can be planed, sanded, drilled, routed, nailed and screwed.
Versapanel is a modern, practical, cost effective, construction material of outstanding performance.

PROPERTIES
The properties of a 12mm board are:
• 2 hour fire resistance.
• High impact resistant (with a density of 1 250 kg/m3 it is denser than most cement bricks).
• High acoustic performance (31 dB per single 12mm board – up to 51 dB in a composite wall).
• Smooth flat surface is suitable for painting, tiling, wall papering, staining, etc.
• Suitable for full exterior application.
• Even in an untreated state it is weather resistant and will it not degrade with permanent exposure, even to extreme freeze/thaw conditions.
• Rot resistant.
• Rodent proof.
• It has anti fungal properties and can be safely used in areas of hygiene e.g. kitchens, bathroom, food preparation areas etc.
• Waterproof.
• High density.
