Viroc can be factory calibrated/sanded (for applications requiring a tighter tolerance). Once calibrated, it presents visible wood particles on the surface. It can be machined and worked with typical carpentry tools. Viroc cement particle boards offer great strength and durability. Easily workable like wood, the boards are flexible for multiple applications for façades, walls, floors and ceilings and roofing”.
