Material and use

The Rockpanel Ply boards are produced from compressed natural basalt, a sustainable and readily available volcanic rock and bonded with an organic binder from which all Rockpanel products derive their unique properties. The products combine the advantages of stone and workability wood.

The Rockpanel Ply boards are primed with a high quality waterborne undercoat and are mainly used for applications along the roofline.

Paint advice for Rockpanel Ply

The Rockpanel Ply boards are primed with an undercoat from the wood processing industry, which you can finish with the colour coating of your choice. The paint solutions suitable for wood products should in principle also be suitable to finish Rockpanel Ply, provided that the paint manufacturer’s recommendations are followed. Always consult your paint supplier and the paint manufacturer’s maintenance instructions.

  • your own paint supplier.
