fermacell® Powerpanel H₂O - For further facade solutions

fermacell® Powerpanel H2O is a cement-bonded lightweight concrete construction board with a laminated structure, reinforced on both sides with an alkali-resistant glass fibre mesh. It offers many advantages for wall and ceiling constructions exposed to high levels of moisture.

The Powerpanel H2O is also suitable as an external render board application.

When cutting fermacell® Powerpanel H2O boards, no harmful dust is released. Special safety measures are not required.

The visible surface of the panel consists of a formwork-smooth exposed concrete surface, the reverse side is slightly undulated or sanded for calibration and they are cement grey in colour.

fermacell® Powerpanel HD - The solution for exterior walls

Outer wall panels for the outer wall finish in timber frame construction. They fulfil load-bearing and bracing functions and can be used as base boards for direct application of render coatings. Due to their inherent fire protection properties, they can also be used for boundary conditions.

The use of expanded clay and recycled glass foam granulate in the core results in a low weight that is easy to install. Nevertheless, fermacell® Powerpanel HD boards are characterised by high compressive and flexural strength. This is ensured by reinforcement made of alkali-resistant glass fibres.

To prevent capillary moisture absorption and to maintain water vapour permeability, fermacell® Powerpanel HD panels are provided have a top layer hydrophobic coating applied during production.
