Kapital k-fibercement Panels
k – fibercement are suitable for outdoor facades and indoor walls, as well as ceiling. K – fiber cement boards belong to the new generation of flat silica-calcareous boards, that are highly compressed and autoclaved, and are reinforced by means of mineralized cellulose fibre. They are non-flammable and rot-proof. They resist the attack of rodents, insects and fungi.
What is k- fibercement?
K-fibercement. sheets belong to the newest generation of flat and highly compressed, autoclaved silico-calcareous slabs, reinforced with mineralized cellulose fibers and treated with Hydrophobic additives. K-fibercement ensures several benefits since it will not burn, is rotproof and totally resistant to each kind of rodents, insects and fungi.
These peculiarities make K-fibercement the ideal choice both for façade cladding, internal wall lining and ceiling finishes.
Why use k- fibercement?
Using K-fibercement. can deliver significant benefits. Fiber cement is an eco-friendly and responsible composite material, manufactured with the greatest respect for the environment and made of cement reinforced by mineralized cellulose fibers, silica and water. The most appealing properties of K-fibercement are its highly durable heat and thermal shock resistance and its inherent ability to withstand external agents, moisture, mildew, fungi, insects and rodents.
Widely used for external ventilated façades both for requalification works and new buildings and thanks to the air gap between the covering and the wall, K-fibercement guarantees a highly-performant thermal and acoustic insulation as well as the total elimination of heat channels, thus allowing for substantial energy saving and lower heating costs.
Designed for a quick and cost-effective installation, fiber cement necessitates reduced maintenance over time.

You can choose among twelve different colors and a wide range of surface finishes all conform to the European Standard EN 12467-2012.
The wide range of available colors as well as the varied surface finishes offered have been conceived and realized to respond creatively to all clients’ needs.
Maintenance and Cleaning
We suggest that you undertake an annual inspection to ensure slabs order and securing. The most important issue is to draw a distinction among natural, hydrophobic and with acrylic treatment slabs. This differentiation allows to pinpoint type of soiling it would like remove.
- Natural and treated areas
- construction site dust : wipe with water
- mud: wipe with water without rubbing the area.
other types of soiling : hardly to remove
- Slabs with acrylic treatment
- graffiti : clean with solvent
Not carrying out the cleaning of slabs during sunlight exposure or in case of hot surface.

Our commitment to sustainability results from the attentive selection of raw materials: At least the 85% of raw materials used come from nearby sites of neighbouring production plants. The organic cellulose fibers used in the production process come from sustainable forests where environmental, social and economic standards are respected.
The whole production process takes place in the most environmentally favorable way that prevent vapors from being released into air. These vapors are indeed used for work space heating during cold winters. Moreover, dust emissions are below the permissible level being retained by HEPA filters and a highly reduced access to potable water to the minimum amount necessary is ensured. Waters used in the production process are totally recycled within a closed circuit.
Parts or wet production waste and dusts are then successfully reused in further production processes, while dry waste is recycled by specialized recycling companies, mixed with cement and made ideally suited for road sub-base.
Last but not least, once the finished product is installed, no special maintenance is required and thanks to the thermal insulation ensured, it is serving to significantly reduce air pollution caused by winter heating and summer cooling processes. It is a long lasting product and it can be easily disassembled for recycling as inert.
