ARMOROC

ARMOROC® is a structural cement board (cement bonded particle board – CBPB) used in the construction of fire-rated roofs, floors, walls and a variety of other applications including modular, SIPS & OEM. By combining the physical properties of Portland Cement with the strength of mineralized wood fibers, ARMOROC® is ideally suited for all applications where durability and fire-resistance are a concern.
