The akrilon-CB (cement board) finish system is a dual barrier cladding assembly incorporating an impact resistant, lightweight cement board sheathing. The system is designed around “cavity wall” principles that include furring strips to move the finish system away from the substrate thereby creating a drainage plane and allowing the convection of air to help manage moisture. An acrylic basecoat, a glass fibre reinforced mesh, mouldings, a primer and a 100% acrylic finish coat are applied to the cement boards. Insulation can also be used (between the furrings) to increase the total R-value of the assembly. The akrilon-CB system replaces the akrilonPRO-CB.
