Marley Eternit has unveiled Eter-Color, a new range of through-coloured architectural fibre cement material.
This range of high-performance, fibre cement cladding material has a unique surface to create a distinct and aesthetically appealing finish to any building.
Being through coloured means that the pigment is held within the mass of the board so colours will not fade over time. Eter-Color offers a choice of eight elegant shades of through colour with naturally occurring hues; enhanced by fine sanded lines on the surface that allow the effect of light and shade to bring buildings to life.
Eter-Color is ideal for use as high performance decorative rainscreen cladding, weather boarding and interior wall lining applications.
Additionally a unique impregnation solution is applied to the material during manufacture that allows rainwater to pearl across the surface, reducing the possibility of staining and ultimately creating a material that is weather resistant.
Eter-Color combines durability with superb, natural-looking colour shades and will therefore provide an effective solution across a wide range of contemporary projects, said Diana Bullock, Campaign Manager at Marley Eternit. The fine sanded lines and naturally occurring hues within the material enhance the organic appearance to create a unique aesthetic appearance.
Eter-Color has an installed life expectancy of at least 50 years with no routine maintenance requirements and is resistant to rot and fungi, making it a highly cost effective material over the whole life of the building.
Marley Eternits fibre cement rainscreen cladding and overclad solutions contribute to the sustainability of projects because it can achieve an A+ rating as defined in the BREs Green Guide to Specification based on generic rating for autoclaved fibre cement single sheet - (Element Ref: 80623042, 806230422, 806230447, 806230450)
