About Fibre cement

What is it?

Fibre cement is a simple abbreviation for Fibre Reinforced Cement. Fibre cement building materials were developed by James Hardie in the early 1980s.

Engineered for durability, fibre cement is resistant to fire and damage from moisture and rotting, making it the ideal low maintenance alternative to traditional building materials.

Fibre cement offers both contemporary and flexible design options and is used by many New Zealanders to create stunning facades. The simple combination of cellulose fibre, sand, cement and water, give the product its strength to stand the test of time.

What's it made of?

Fibre cement products are a mixture of:

  • Cellulose fibre, from plantation-grown Radiata Pine trees
  • Portland Cement
  • Sand
  • Water

Small amounts of other chemical additives are used to help the process or provide products with particular characteristics.
