The main raw materials and manufacturing methods

The main raw materials and manufacturing methods

NICHIHA’s exterior wall material is superior in frost damage resistant, dimensions stability, and a formability with dry-wall construction method by using wood reinforced fiber. Dry-wall construction methods is the process of manufacturing by mixing wood material and cement adding little water and press-molding.

  • Wood fiber reinforced cement board system

    Inorganic combination materials like cement are reinforced and hardened by using wood fiber or wood chip.

  • Fiber reinforced cement board system

    Inorganic combination materials like cement are reinforced and hardened by using mineral matter fiber and organic quality fiber.

  • Fiber reinforced cement, calcium silicate board system

    Inorganic combination materials like cement or quality of silicic acidcalcium are reinforced and hardened by using minaral matter fiber and organic quality fiber.

Construction Method of NICHIHA sidings

Dry-wall Construction Method

Dry-wall construction method is the method that fixes prefinished panels at the site. It shortens curing period for dry differing from concrete or a plaster which needs water. Besides, NICHIHA siding is simple to construct and shorten the term of construction work.

Ventilation Construction Method

The method makes an air layer between the siding and moisture-permeable water-proof sheet. Using this method it can be expected to inhibit the entry of rainwater, prevent dew condensation in a wall by letting moisture be out, and block hot air in summer. It is effective for improvement of building durability.
