Viroc

Thanks to its composition of compressed and dry mix pine wood particles and cement, Viroc boards are highly durable but as easily workable as wood.

Viroc panels appeal to architectural needs thanks to its’ natural appearance, which can be further enhanced by three different finishes: raw (unpolished), polished and sanded. The sanded finish highlights the visible wood particles on the surface of the board.

General guidelines on Viroc board preparation

Cutting
Circular saws are ideal for thicknesses up to 19mm and for anything greater in thickness, the support of a workbench is recommended to ensure an even surface quality. For curved edges, a jigsaw is ideal (using the correct blade depending on wood or metal).

Drilling
Conventional hammer drills are ideal for drilling.

Sanding
The thickness tolerance of the sanded board is ± 0.3 mm. When the board is sanded, wood particles become visible on the board surface, enhancing the board’s natural appeal.

Machining of edges
Bevel, tongue-groove or half lap joints can be created onto the edge of the panel. The tooling pieces should be tungsten carbide.

Varnish
Continuous and steady application is recommended to support a uniform finish to protect against UV and rain. Solvent based acrylic varnishes are ideal for application.

Painting
To help the longevity of the Viroc panel, it can be painted for decorative purposes with a large variety of paints or coatings.
