Hicem Flexo

Ramco Hicem Flexo effectively outperforms existing building materials on all important performance parameters, including flexural strength, impact strengths and durability. Hicem Flexo boards are strong, non-combustible, water-resistant and are not affected by pests and termites.

Hicem Flexo Board is manufactured using cement, cellulose fibres with performance enhancing special additives. Hicem Flexo boards are made as per IS:14862-2000 standard in a lamination process and then autoclaved to give a stable crystalline structure.

The resultant crystalline structure makes the board durable and dimensionally stable even in adverse environments. Further, Hicem Flexo boards come with good acoustic and thermal insulation properties to meet various end applications.

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, including galvanized steel and anodized aluminum.

PROPERTIES

 

  • FIRE RESISTANCE

    COMBUSTIBILITY

    Hicem Flexo Boards are non-combustible as per

    BS: 476: Part-4-1970.
  • IGNITABILITY

    Hicem Flexo Boards are not ignitable and conform to

    BS: 476: Part-5-1979.
  • FIRE PROPAGATION INDEX

    Fire Propagation Index I = 0.7,

    which is the best in Class as per

    BS: 476:Part-6-1989.
  • SURFACE SPREAD OF FLAME

    Hicem Flexo Boards conform to
    Class I as per

    BS: 476: Part-7-1997

    indicating that it does not allow spread of flame.

  


  • WATER RESISTANCE

    Hicem Flexo Boards are water resistant and are not affected even after soaking in water for 24 hours.

 

  • NO MOULD GROWTH

    Hicem Flexo Boards are made from natural minerals which are inorganic in nature and hence free from mould growth.

 


    • TERMITE RESISTANCE

      Hicem Flexo Boards are made mostly of inorganic minerals and are termite resistant.

     

    • THERMAL INSULATION

      Hicem Flexo Boards have "K" value of 0.18 W/m-K, and hence contribute enormously to energy saving.

     

    DIMENSIONAL STABILITY

    Hicem Flexo Boards are cured under HPSC (High Pressure Steam Curing) which causes an irreversible matrix change providing high dimensional and chemical stability accompanied by low alkalinity.

    SEAMLESS FINISH

    Hicem Flexo Boards can provide seamless finishes when installed with most forms of paints, wall papers and laminates.

    APPEARANCE

    Hicem Flexo Boards have an off-white, superior texture making it suitable for all kinds of finishes.
