Abstract: High performance cement board (HPB) is produced by Hatzeck process just like a traditional papermaking. This new concept product is made of cement, PVA-fibers, pulps and other additives. HPB is suitable for permanent formworks, panels and other thin applications. It is very similar to traditional fiber cement board but most different characters of this HPB are the strain-hardening behavior and micro/multiple cracking dispersion with over 12N/mm2 of high tensile strength. And also it has a good durability, i.e. freezing and thawing, penetration, fire resistance and etc. One of the useful properties of HPB is handling. It can be enable easy drilling, nailing and cutting HPB on site. And the second is durability of ductility. It can be reduce the life cycle cost because of long-term durability. These typical properties enabled new retrofitting process and also some practical experiments.
