This experimental research analyzes the mechanical performance and durability of façade
pieces based on Portland cement matrix and flax nonwovens as reinforcement. Two types
of pozzolanic additions (silica fume and metakaolin) combined with nonwovens
subjected to different treatments to decrease their water absorption are analyzed as
potential materials for fiber-cement sheets for building envelopes with high strength and
