What is Scyon™
The brainchild of James Hardie's research and development team, Scyon™ is an advanced lightweight cement composite with heavy-duty performance. Created with ease of installation in mind, Scyon™ brings advanced building technology to the houses of today, with an eye on tomorrow. Keep your eye on SCYON™ and challenge convention.
Scyon™ is -
• Made from benign raw materials low in toxicity;
• Low in embodied energy relative to many other building products like masonry and concrete; that’s the energy consumed by all of the processes associated with the production of the product.
• Easy to incorporate into practical building systems that touch the earth lightly;
• Very durable and low maintenance which helps create buildings low in lifetime energy consumption;
• Able to be used to create energy efficient and thermally comfortable buildings in any Australian climate (when used in the right design);
• Low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
