hicem-board

The surface of the board can be easily decorated
with most varieties of paints, wall papers,
laminates, veneers and ceramic tiles. These
boards are compatible with common building
materials and galvanized steel.

DIMENSIONAL STABILITY

Hicem Boards are cured in HPSC [High Pressure Steam Curing]
which cause an irreversible chemical change, thus providing high dimensional
and chemical stability accompanied by low alkalinity.

Board Cutting Instructions

  • Position cutting station in such a way that the wind will blow dust
    away from the user or others in working area
  • Use marble cutting machine with Diamond-cutting disc blade
  • Use Self Tapping drilling screw or PTA screw
  • Always follow tool manufacturers’ safety instructions

Finishing Instructions

  • Level the boards on the floor
    after installation before starting
    the finishing process.
  • Prepare a cement mortar bed of
    minimum 40 to 50 mm thickness
    on the surface before laying tiles
    on them.
  • Vinyl or Carpet can also be laid
    on the floor surface.
