Allied Building Products presents VIROC
Strong, flexible, durable & resistant
Allied Building Products presents VIROC … a cement bonded particle board composed of wood particles and Portland cement. It is light gray in color and is flat and smooth on both surfaces. Sized 4X8 and 4X10 foot, VIROC combines the strengh and flexibility of wood with the durability and resistant qualities of cement.
|Strength and Stability||VIROC functions well as a structural substrate in prefabricated|
modular or on-site construction, employing either steel or wood
|Fire Resistant||VIROC is noncombustible (ASTM E-136) and has superior|
|Water, Freeze and|
|VIROC is stable when subjected to water immersion without any|
sealant applied to the board. It will not delaminate in water
and is dimensionally stable.
|Impact Resistant||Test results of ASTM D-256 indicate that VIROC is capable of|
successfully resisting substantial impact forces without
experiencing breakage or fissuring.
|As a result of its mass, VIROC offers excellent sound attenuation.|
|Ease in Installation||VIROC assemblies are lightweight, fire resistant and structurally|
sound. These features make VIROC easy to install and contribute to
significant in-place economies.
|Multiple Applications||VIROC is designed to accept a variety of decorative and protective|
surface coatings. Its smooth surface is an excellent base for paints
as well as synthetic stucco finishes.
|VIROC does not present|
health hazards, and is
|The uniting of wood fiber and Portland cement produces a building|
panel which is non-toxic. VIROC does not contain asbestos, silica
or other carcinogenic agents.
|Fabricates Like Wood||VIROC’s properties are non-directional and present no difficulties|
when installing regardless of panel orientation VIROC may be sawn,
planed, sanded, drilled, routed, nailed and screwed.
|Weatherability/Durability||VIROC has been used in a wide range of climatic conditions|
throughout the world and has been thoroughly tested for
weatherability and durability.
|BOCA-ES Evaluated||VIROC has been evaluated by BOCA-ES, as Type T2 Cement Bonded Particleboard, Research File No. 94-61, Division 06-Section 06128.|
|Additional Approvals||City of New York MEA# 179-95-M.|
|Limited Warranty||VIROC is warranted not to crack, spall or degrade for a period of|
