The company will also be introducing Aquapanel Cement Board Systems. Developed by Knauf USG systems, Aquapanel is the "next generation" cement board of choice for construction professionals in Europe. Knauf is now introducing it to the GCC market.

According to the company, there are two types of Aquapanel boards which are available, depending on the application type.
