Early installation, before building is watertight

SUPALUX® has many special performance attributes that have important advantages for all project stakeholders – specifiers, installers and building users.

With a calcium silicate composition and being gypsum–free, SUPALUX® provides for excellent dimensional stability, even in damp and humid conditions.

SUPALUX® can be safely installed in semi-exposed environments and at early stages of a build and before a building is watertight. This contributes to a faster build programme.
