Abstract
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 durability.
