Fiber Cement History
Austrian in origin, Ludwig Hatschek patented fiber cement in Austria in 1901 and named it “Eternit” based on the Latin term “aeternitas” meaning everlasting. In 1903 the company Schweizerische Eternit-Werke AG began fabricating the material in the city of Niederurnen in Switzerland. Early fiber cement panels used asbestos fibers to add strength. Fiber cement products came about as a replacement for the widely used “asbestos cement sheeting” or “fibro”, manufactured until the 1980s.
Fiber Cement Composition
Fiber cement siding is a class of composite siding that is usually made from a combination of cement, cellulose (wood), sand, and water. They are either coated or painted in the factory or installed and then painted after installation. Fiber cement is popular for its realistic look, durability, and fire resistance. Composite siding products containing cellulose (wood fibers) have been shown to have problems with deterioration, delamination, or loss of coating adhesion in certain climates or under certain environmental conditions.
