One of the most versatile building products availble

ETERPAN is a fibre cement board that is one of the preferred solutions for building applications in New Zealand. Due to the unique FLOW ON production process, Eterpan has superior delamination resistance because its reinforcing fibres are evenly distributed through the material and thickness. Eterpan can be used in almost any exterior and interior application as it combines excellent water, frost, mould, impact and delamination resistance.

ETERPAN has a proud and distinguished history both in New Zealand and world wide. It is part of the ETEX group, one of the oldest fibre cement manufacturers in the world. From the ETEX group website:

'Alphonse Emsens founded Eternit and set up a fibre cement factory in Haren near Brussels. He acquired the license from the Austrian industrialist Ludwig Hatschek, who had invented a technology that enabled the production of flat sheets made of cement reinforced with fibres in 1905.'

They have been the leaders in innovating better and more effective fibre cement products throughout the world for an incredible amount of building solutions.

Here in New Zealand we are proud to say we are the cladding, lining, and fire protection for some of New Zealand largest and most spectacular buildings.
