Wood-cement boards are exterior and interior building materials manufactured utilizing wood and cement. Fire resistance, freeze-thaw resistance, termite & vermin resistance, wet & dry rot resistance, and thermal insulation are the main characteristics offered by these boards. They are widely utilized in non-residential applications such as gymnasiums & swimming pools due to their sound absorption properties & acoustic performance.
Wood-cement boards accept a wide range of conventional plastering, mastics, and decorative materials. Wood strand cement boards (WSCB) are less susceptible to severe weathering, insect attack, and fungal growth when compared to oriented strandboard (OSD) & plywood; it exhibits structural strength and good durability.
