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.
colours and surfaces
Viroc ventilated facade panels can be installed using a screw fix system or with adhesive, either onto a timber, aluminium or metal supporting structure. Please contact Pura Facades for full details on recommended fixing systems for varied applications of Viroc cement particle boards.
General guidelines on Viroc board preparation
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).
Conventional hammer drills are ideal for drilling.
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.
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.
To help the longevity of the Viroc panel, it can be painted for decorative purposes with a large variety of paints or coatings.
