This specification covers either untextured or surface textured non-asbestos fiber-cement flat sheets intended for exterior applications such as claddings, facades, curtain walls, soffits, and so forth. This specification does not apply to asbestos-cement flat sheets, gypsum-based boards or particle boards, discrete non-asbestos fiber-cement interior substrate sheets, fiber-mat reinforced non-asbestos cement interior substrate sheets, or cement-bonded particleboards. Flat sheets covered here are divided into two types according to their intended application, and four grades according to their flexural strengths. Type A sheets are intended for exterior applications subjected to the direct action of sun, rain, or snow, while Type B sheets are intended for exterior applications not subjected to the direct action of sun, rain, or snow. Sheets shall adhere to the following mechanical and physical requirements: flexural strength, density, dimension (nominal length, width, and thickness, squareness, and edge straightness), finish, and color.

This standard is referenced in the 2012 International Building Code® and the International Residential Code®.
