When Ludwig Hatschek invented fibre cement in the late 19th century, he combined the basic elements of the earth: mineral materials, water, air and fire (heat) in a simple filtration process.  He named the resulting material ¨Eternit¨, hinting at the superior durability of this new material. Our mother company, Etex Group, has been manufacturing these materials since 1905. The most recent and most prestigious incarnation in  this prould heritage of unique materials is the EQUITONE®  façade material. 

The Hatschek production process makes each panel unique wth an individual fibre cement texture. Most EQUITONE façade materials are not treated with artificial colour coatings, giving the through coloured materials a raw, unfinished character.
