Press release: Cembrit offers weber compatible building boards

Cembrit is delighted to announce that two of its building boards have been tested and approved for use with Weber building materials. This collaborative approach provides contractors with complete solutions for internal tiling, and external render projects.

 Cembrit’s Unipan tile backer board and PB render board are now compatible for use with Weber’s cement-based tile adhesive and the weberend MT system respectively.  To achieve this, the Cembrit building boards completed a comprehensive testing process to ensure that the products are compatible and withstand the installation requirements.

 

“We’re delighted to add Cembrit building boards to our list of approved boards,” comments Tracey Dempster, Head of Marketing, Saint-Gobain Weber. “By passing our extensive testing we’re happy that contractors can combine Weber and Cembrit products with complete confidence in their performance.”

 

“We are excited to be working with Weber to offer mutual benefits to our customers,” says Ged Ferris, Marketing Manager, Cembrit. “There are similarities between Cembrit and Weber, with both companies striving to provide high quality products. This development allows us to provide contractors with ‘all-in-one’ render systems, which will aid the installation process, saving both time and money.”

 

Unipan is a versatile tile backing board which is ideally suited for internal ‘wet’ applications. Unipan is lightweight, tough, and stable, and offers a solid base for tiling through its excellent adhesion properties.

Unipan also features reinforced tapered edges that are specifically designed for a good join, which is critical in wet applications such as bathrooms, en-suites and shower rooms. Available specially sized for bathrooms and showers, the boards are mechanically fixed to stud or block work. The board does not require priming when using Weber adhesive, making for simpler and quicker application. 

 

Cembrit PB is a base board specifically designed for render systems. The board delivers impressive dimensional stability and low water absorption properties, to minimise expansion and contraction as a result of heat, cold and moisture. The boards contain polystyrene beading, which greatly reduce the weight of the board in comparison with stone, block and concrete. Cembrit PB can be scored and snapped rather than requiring mechanical cutting, making for a much more user-friendly application.
