FASTER

Now weight-optimised for exceptionally light performance, Knauf Aquapanel® Interior Cement Board saves costs in transportation and effort in handling – while still delivering dimensional stability and best-in-class performance in the wet. Even simpler to score and snap and with a bending radius of 1 m – without needing to cut strips – the new board also features two types of joint treatment, so it’s easier than ever to install. As easy to use as gypsum board, the new light cement board means faster installation, higher productivity and increased profitability, even in the most challenging wet areas.
