Key Features

Coated with a blue pigmented sealer that uses Ceminseal® water block technology on the sheet face and edges.

Recessed edges for flush jointing are 35mm long and 2mm deep and are on the long sides only.

Suitable for Class 1 and 10 and 2 to 9 buildings.

Suitable for Fire Resistance Levels (FRLs) up to 90/90/90 with wall systems constructed with Gyprock Fyrchek™ Commercial Plasterboard (refer to Gyprock® The Red Book™)

The Texture Base Sheet is Cemintel®’s blue board product for creating a rendered texture on exterior walls. It’s a 7.5mm fibre cement sheet, with recessed edges for flush jointed external walls. The cement sheets have a coating of blue primer, which is why they’re called blue board.

Texture Base Sheets are generally used on upper stories, cantilevered features and above long span openings like garage doors. The cement sheets are used in places that require a jointless render texture aesthetic and where it’s impractical to construct and support a heavy rendered masonry wall.

Texture Coating Recommendations

  • Cemintel recommends that the joint system and texture coat used are supplied by the same manufacturer to ensure compatibility of materials.
  • Usually, suitable coating systems are 100% acrylic, high performance, elastomeric membrane waterproofing coatings. Such as Dulux Acratex 955 or Wattyl Granolmpact or similar.
