Dimensionally stable, BGC Fibre Cement building boards and products are also tremendously flexible, with no loss of the inherent qualities for which fibre cement is so highly regarded. An advantage of fibre cement is that, because the raw materials mix can be varied, the finished products possess a variety of characteristics with a wide range of applications.
