Why Choose SVK Fibre Cement Slates?

Strongest Fibre Cement Slates Available

SVK Fibre Cement slates are the strongest slates available on the Irish market.

No other fibre cement slate comes close to SVK standards concerning bending strength. This is achieved because SVK exclusively uses and sources fibres of the highest quality.

4.2mm in diameter, SVK Fibre Cement slates are of the strongest class – Class B – in accordance with the European Standard EN 492. They offer the most comprehensive range of certification, underpinning their quality and reliability.

Superior Paint Finish

SVK Fibre Cement slates have a superior paint finish on the edges and surface of their slates.

SVK knowingly choose to apply the final coat on the face side of the slates with a “paint curtain” process. This way the surface of all their slates is smoother and more attractive, as opposed to when the final coating is only dispersed using older technology.

Extremely Durable

SVK Fibre Cement Slates are extremely durable.

The water absorption of their slates is, on average, half that of other manufacturers. SVK applies two paint coats on the front side, on the back side and on the edges of the slates. This low water absorption along with the double-paint-coating process enhances the durability of their slates.

Quality of the Paint Coat

The quality of the paint coat on our fibre cement slates is unequalled.

SVK has more than 70 years of experience in preparation and application of paint. Added to this, in 2007, SVK invested in the installation of the most modern paint line in Europe.This technical leap forward enables SVK to produce slates with an extraordinarily high UV-resistance, a super-smooth moss-resistant surface and an unequalled paint adhesion.

In order to prevent moss growth, special moss-inhibiting constituents are added to the double coating.

Fibre Cement Slates – Composition and Manufacture

All slates are double-pressed Fibre Cement flat sheets composed of PORTLAND cement, superior-quality organic fibres, mineral additives and water.

The front and sides of the slates are finished with a multi–layer acrylic based coating, greatly counteracting the growth of moss. The underside of the slates are treated with a one-layer coating and a colourless water-repellent resinous layer. This finishing offers optimal protection under all weather conditions.
