ETERPAN® Medium Density Fibre Cement Board for Internal Linings
Description

ETERPAN® MD fibre cement board finds extensive application in internal linings, serving as a reliable choice for both the final product and as a substrate for tile, plaster, stone, or brick installations. In particular, it is highly suitable for wet wall linings in bathrooms where tiles are commonly used. Its outstanding resistance to moisture makes it an ideal choice for wet areas.

Additionally, ETERPAN® MD is available in sanded and unsanded variants, allowing flexibility in selecting the appropriate finish, such as painting the board as the final touch.

ETERPAN® comes in various sizes, thicknesses and finishes:

  • 6mm, 7.5mm, 9mm, 12mm and 20mm thicknesses
  • 1200 x 2400mm, 1200 x 2700mm, and 1200 x 3000mm boards
  • Square edge, recessed edge, and tongue & groove
  • Sanded and unsanded

ETERPAN® MD is a fibre cement board created using the advanced flow-on technology. This durable board is composed of Portland cement, cellulose fibres, sand, and water.  Thanks to flow-on technology, it possesses excellent dimensional stability and can support a weight of up to 100kg per square metre on a 9mm thick board.
