95% of Swisspearl® fiber cement is made up of natural raw materials from the Swiss mountains: cement, pulverized limestone, water and air. This ensures an effective protection of material resources, avoiding unnecessary transport distances.
Swisspearl® fiber cement panels are manufactured with low energy and a high level of environmental awareness. The manufacturing process based on a closed water cycle and a slow natural 28 days curing time requires little energy. Within the factory, panels are only transported by electric lifting trucks , – i.e. no colloid dust. The panels are 100% environmentally friendly since neither the raw materials nor the production process contain any dangerous substances.
