Characteristics of asbestos cement flat sheets

An asbestos cement flat sheet is a man-made rock-like material produced by asbestos, cement and water mixture hardening.

Asbestos cement sheets have higher tensile, bending and impact strength than hardened cement paste or mortar. It is due to asbestos reinforcing action which firstly takes up proportional to its elasticity coefficient and content part of tensile load on the product and secondly prevents crack initiation, growth and opening displacement in asbestos cement. Asbestos cement has similar reinforcing action as reinforced concrete where concrete steel takes tensile strength.

Asbestos cement sheets are characterized by lower water permeability and higher leaching resistance and mineralized water resistance than concrete and Portland cement mortars.

Asbestos cement corrugated sheets have a rectangular shape. The sheet length is 1750 mm, width – 1110 mm, thickness – 8 mm.

Asbestos cement sheets are a cheap and effective material for residential construction being an ideal combination of economic and technical characteristics. The advantage of asbestos sheets is less cost and working hours.

Asbestos cement sheets are durable, freeze resistant, fireproof, waterproof and they have a lot of other advantages as well. They do not need to be coated. They seldom need a repair and they are of considerable rigidity. Asbestos cement sheets strength continuously increases. They are of lightweight. They can be easy turned, shaped, milled and drilled. Asbestos cement sheets can be cut with a common jointer saw. Their disadvantages are embrittlement and buckling.
