The application of fiber cement has created lots of different products such as flat wall panels, floor sheets, ship floors, decorative panels, plumbing etc., and has been used in many major countries around the world such as Germany, the USA, the Russia etc. Currently, more than 50,000 kilometer of fiber-cement water pipes installed during the 50s in Germany are still in use. 60 percent of households in Brazil use water tanks made from fiber cement. The colorful houses in Russia with wall sheets and roof sheets made entirely from fiber cement are an excellent testament to the diverse applications of this material.
