Cembrit Patina

Cembrit's Patina board is a strong, weather-proof cladding board characterized by its muted, matte finish. During manufacturing, the through-colored board receives a unique surface treatment which makes it powerfully resistant towards water staining and dirt, ensuring a long-lasting and durable facade.

Cembrit Patina Inline

Patina Inline reflects strength and durability. Its milled grooves add a dimensional effect to any building, making it possible to create custom squares or triangular patterns. When viewed in natural light, its featured lines offer a vibrant look that changes throughout the day.  Over time, this material will patinate, enriching its natural look.  This material is virtually maintenance-free and is available in 3 timeless colors: graphite, flint, and sand.

Cembrit Patina Rough
