Thin reinforced cementitious products offer a useful balance of properties such as strength, toughness, environmental durability, moisture resistance, dimensional stability, fire resistance, esthetics, and ease of handling and installation. The growing emphasis on environmental durability and fire resistance of cementitious products has led to their increased use worldwide. This report summarizes the current knowledge of reinforcements, manufacturing methods, engineering properties, and applications of thin reinforced cementitious products.
