Abstract:
    Replacing Fiber Cement Board with Lightweight Corrugated Panels in Light Gauge Steel construction. The product will be locally available unlike FCB, and will fulfill all the technical requirements.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    FCB is imported from Thailand with 54% duties and taxes. Lightweight Corrugated Panels will be locally produced. Material will have around 6 times more thermal and acoustic insulation thus sustainable in the long run
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Construction Industry needs it and virtually the whole housing industry in Pakistan and Middle East will benefit from it. The only factor that makes Light Gauge Steel Structures costly is cladding and if the product is locally produced then this cost will greatly reduce.
How will the solution works
    Cement, Lime, Sand and aluminium powder will be mixed together to produce a foamed mix and which will be poured in corrugated mold. The material will then be epoxy coated to reduce water absorption. Knocking issue which is faced by the current industry using FCB will be tackled by making the panel up to 1 inch thick. The material will then be transported to site for construction.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    As of now there is no local competitor. All the products are imported from countries like Thailand.
