The history of fiber cement

 

How EQUITONE is made

Ludwig Hatschek invented fibre cement in the late 19th century by combining the basic elements of the earth: mineral materials, water, air and fire (heat) in a simple filtration process. Our mother company, Etex, has been manufacturing fibre cement materials since 1905. The most prestigious incarnation in this proud heritage of unique materials is the EQUITONE® facade material range.
