Versaroc is a highly fire-resistant* (UL LISTED), structural cement bonded particle board (CBPB) for use in span-rated floors, roofs, and walls. Versaroc is highly resistant to weather, impact, mold/fungus, abuse and vermin/insect attack.
Versaroc is composed of 71% Portland cement, 19% mineralized wood fiber, 9% water and 1% bonding agents. The uniting of wood fiber and Portland cement produces a building panel which is non-toxic, does not contain hazardous volatiles and is free of any asbestos or formaldehyde. Versaroc does not present health hazards and is environmentally safe. Versaroc is a green building material and contributes to your building’s LEED certification (IEQ Credit 3, IEQ Credit 4).
Versaroc will not delaminate in water and is dimensionally stable. Versaroc’s outstanding features make it suitable for exterior and interior wall construction, floors, ceilings, or as a general purpose building panel.
Versaroc is supplied in 4’ x 8’ and 4’ x 10’ sheets at thicknesses of 5/16”, 3/8”, 1/2”, 3/4”, 7/8”, 1”, 1-1/8”, 1-1/4” and 1-1/2”. Square edge boards are available on all thicknesses and tongue & groove edges are available on 5/8” through 1-1/2” panels. Panels are available in standard finish, factory sealed on all six sides and/or factory calibrated (sanded).

* For Walls
o Ideal for wall applications where impact and abuse is a concern
o Great for sheer walls
o Installs directly to framing
o Versaroc can be easily fabricated and installed in a variety of applications where fire-resistance, abuse and moisture are a concern.
o Ideal for stairs, furniture, planters, backer-boards, and much more.
o Versaroc is an ideal substitute for portable, modular buildings such as schools, hospitals, cellular towers, equipment shelters, emergency housing, shelters, etc.
o Versaroc handles like plywood while maintaining properties of Portland Cement - allowing Versaroc to meet building code requirements for fire-resistance. Installs quickly and cost effectively, and keeps your structure lightweight for easy and cost-effective transport.
o Versaroc makes a great skin-system for SIPS (Structural Insulated Panel System). With considerable strength at thicknesses as thin as 8mm Versaroc is well suited for these applications. It is highly fire-resistant, abuse resistant, receives many finish materials, machines easily and bonds to almost any building material.
* Access Flooring
o Versaroc is a lightweight building panel suitable to withstand the loading conditions of most access flooring applications. Versaroc installs using carpentry tools/equipment and can be fabricated at the factory to fit your specific design requirements.
o Versaroc is completely withstands high concentrated point-loads, rolling loads, and impact loads.
