Fibre Cement Products

EnduraStar Felts

  • Highest MD strength retention 
  • Smooth and marking-free felt surface
  • Easier cleaning
  • Increased felt life potential

Adhesion Treatment – available on all FC felts

  • Full machine speed from start-up
  • Full production output over the entire felt life
  • Easier felt cleaning
  • Energy savings due to lower vacuum requirements

Huystar FC

Huystar FC felts combine base fabrics made from robust monofilaments and batt structures engineered specifically for the most demanding fibre cement product requirements and machine conditions.

Porotwin FC

Porotwin FC felts combine base fabrics made from proprietary combination yarns engineered specifically for the most demanding machine conditions and fibre cement product requirements.

Porotherm and Porotherm Light

Producing corrugated fibre cement roofing and hand moulded special products or pipes requires a felt that is durable and imparts the proper surface texture to the product. These felts deliver outstanding interlaminar bonding. This results in excellent product stability and density. Porotherm and Porotherm Light felts are made from proprietary combination yarns that stand up to the most demanding machine conditions.

CemPress Drive Roll

CemPress polyurethane drive roll covers deliver excellent wear characteristics, even when processing the most abrasive fibre cement materials. In addition, the specially engineered compound delivers superior resistance to high pH and caustic chemical processes. Benefits include:

  • Exceptional abrasion resistance

  • Superior resistance to high pH and caustic chemical processes

  • Excellent operational characteristics in both low and high temperature applications

  • Superior tensile, tear, elongation, and resilience properties deliver extended life potential and resistance to damage

  • Available in extended hardness range from 50-90 Shore A

  • Available in plain, grooved, or drilled patterns

Composite Panel

Composite Panel

ANDRITZ also supplies a complete line of fabric technology for the composite panel sector including machines producing ceiling and floor tiles, as well as MDF boards.

Our Huycon woven designs and Huycoil assembled spiral designs are ideal solutions for these machine applications.
