In addition to Australia, "BS8414" has been ported to a number of other countries' standards, including Malaysia and UAE.
The extruded base material with less dispersion of specific gravity and high durability is cured by autoclave curing, which causes fewer dimensional changes due to water absorption and drying, as well as preventing the generation of cracks and warping, for a long time.
Extrusion Molding Base material with little dispersion in specific gravity Even after several years have passed since the installation Autoclave Curing It is a method of putting the product in a high temperature and high humidity steam kiln (autoclave) to accelerate the curing of the product and make it stronger quality. Stable quality with little dimensional change Naturally cured exterior wall material Hardening progresses even after installation As the curing progresses, the dimensions change, which may cause cracks and warpage.
By reducing the size of innumerable small cavity (voids) in the base material of the outer wall material and providing a cushioning point, the pressure reduced by volume expansion during freezing, and makes the base material is less likely to be destroyed.
An image of freezing damage-resistant Fiber Reinforced Cement Siding "DRESSE" The unique blend and extrusion forming reduce the cavity size to control freezing, and the forming of ａ cushioned portion relaxes the pressure caused by the freezing, thereby controlling freezing damage. Non-autoclave cured general base material There are many cavities of several hundred to several thousand Å in size, which are generally regarded as prone to freezing damage. They break easily when frozen due to volume expansion, and tend to cause freezing damage. Even if frozen…Resists freezing damage! Resistant to breakage and strong Resists freezing damage because the cushioned portion will absorb the pressure. When frozen…Freezing Damage Occurs! Easily Broken and Weak The pressure of volume expansion breaks the base material!
Freezing and Melting Test Visual observation after 300 cycles of repeated test. （1 cycle = freezing in the atmosphere -20℃ 2 hours ⇔melting in water 20℃ 1 hour.） Picture of ａ test object after 300 testing cycles Fiber Reinforced Cement Siding "DRESSE" No abnormalities The base material of DRESSE shows excellent freezing damage resistance, with no damage caused by freezing. When freezing damage occurs abnormalities When freezing damage occurs, the base material will swell from the breakage due to volume expansion.
With our unique manufacturing method, it adheres to clear layer and maintains the hydrophilic function for a long time.
With its excellent hydrophilic function, rainwater gets in between Gran Coat and dirt, and rainwater floats and flushes away dirt.
Since it doesn't need sunlight, the effect can be sustained even on the north side, in the shade, and at night.
Gran Coat（Hydrophilic Overcoat Coating） Excellent dirt resistance The actual ease of removing dirt depends on the environmental conditions at the construction site, the type of dirt, and the texture of the product. The effect will be low, if a large amount of dirt adheres to it, or if it is rusted, has a high concentration, or has a high viscosity (such as water-repellent dirt from a silicone-based sealant)
Comparison of Gran Coat（Hydrophilic Overcoat Coating）and general coating Maintain Hydrophilic function Decline Visual observation Visually observation of the surface after one year of actual exposure test in a dirty environment
High particle stability and compactness The bond of particles is strong and stable When forming a coating film, agglutination is less likely to occur in the particles, and the coating film is uniform, so the bonding power of the hydrophilic particles is less likely to flow out, and the hydrophilic function can be maintained for a long time.
Water contact angle Measure the contact angle of water after leaving it in the natural environment for one year. As the contact angle gets bigger, the hydrophilic function declines.
Comparison between EXTRA FACE and general acrylic coat It maintains excellent weather resistance for a long time. Five years of exposure is equivalent to 15 years in a general region in Japan. （Differs from region to region） Actual Okinawa exposure test An actual exposure test in a region with many natural deterioration factors such as high temperatures and humidity, a large amount of solar radiation,sea salt particles, etc.
Comparison between VARIABLL FACE and general acrylic coat Sunshine weather meter test The rising of ultraviolet zone of the light source is similar to the spectral irradiance distribution of sunlight, specified in various standards including JIS and ISO. ※The measurements are noted above. They do not guarantee performance. VARIABLE FACE does not reach the color difference of ⊿E≧3 even after 5,000 hours VARIABLE FACE maintains a gloss retention rate over 80% even after 5,000 hours 5,000 hours is equivalent to 10 years.（Differs from region to region） No deterioration It has excellent performance both in terms of color difference and gloss retention rate. Deterioration Faded and deteriorated color
When an earthquake occurs, the heavier the building, the greater the force exerted on the building.
The hollow structure reduces the weight of the product, thus reducing the load on the building.
Furthermore, by reducing the weight of products, the burden on the installation craftsmen is reduced, which also contributes to the improvement of installation efficiency.
Hollow Structure design The base material is soft and easy to cut. It is lightweight even though it is designed to create a heavy feeling. Recommended for upgrading the outside appearance.
A heavier exterior wall will cause increasingly severe oscillation during an earthquake.
Lighter than mortar or ALC, reducing the load on the building.
Comparison of weight per dwelling Converted with the external wall area as 100m2 per dwelling. Weight is half of the weight of mortar or less
Since it is possible to follow the shaking of the earthquake by the clips installation, there is no cracking or falling off before an abnormality occurs in the substrate.
Installation with clip Shaking of earthquake and movement of outer wall Fiber Reinforced Cement Siding "DRESSE" By using clips, the received earthquake force is moderated by the fixing fittings, nails, furring strips, etc., preventing cracks and detachment caused by shaking from earthquakes. Mortar Crack Detachment Since it is directly fixed to the pillar and beam, the outer wall material cannot resist the force with which the structure deforms when receiving the earthquake force. It may result in cracks and detachment.
We provide a peaceful living environment by reducing the noise from outdoors and sound generated inside the house to the minimum levels.
*Sound transmission loss is an indicator of sound insulation performance. The bigger the value, the higher the sound insulation performance.
Cut noise by about 50%! The sound transmission loss about29dB ※The sound insulation performance varies depending on specifications of the structure (component materials) and openings.
Excellent Heat Insulation Properties reduces heat loss from the outer wall surfaces.
※DRESSE is a value measured by our company. (Unit conversion: 1W= 0.86kcal/hr) The figures for other building materials are quoted from "Commentaries on Energy Saving Standards for Housing" ★By using a heat insulation waterproof sheet enhances the heating/cooling efficiency and contributes to reduction of electricity running costs. Thermal Conductivity is the numerical expression of how much a substance conducts heat; the lower the figure, the higher the performance of the heat insulation.
As a result of experiments on wind pressure resistance, high wind pressure resistance is proven through the use of clip installation method of our company
※It has also excellent wind pressure resistance performance against positive pressure. DRESSE is resistant to strong winds! The exterior walls will be pushed and pulled by strong winds such as typhoons.
The exterior wall ventilation method is adopted as the standard method of installation.
If water should happen to reach the back of the Fiber Reinforced Cement Siding DRESSE, the waterproof paper will prevent the water from further seepage, and it is exhausted outside through the ventilation layer.
The class of "DRESSE" is standard, and that of "DRESSE PREMIUM" is high grade.
