What is the thickness of FCFC sheeting?

FC Sheeting Specifications. Fibre cement thicknesses vary between 4.5 – 18mm and also vary in density – the lower density resulting in a fibrous rough edge when cut and the higher density having a cleaner smoother edge when cut. Thermal resistance and sound transmission vary great between fibre cement products.

How do you bond BGC cement sheets together?

For interior applications BGC Compressed Fibre Cement sheets should be bonded together using HydrEpoxy 501, Hydraband 501 or equivalent.
