Scyon™ Axon™ cladding
What is it?

A vertically grooved cladding panel that looks sharp and uniform. Pre-primed and easy to install, Scyon™ Axon™ cladding is a pristine look that lasts.


Where do you use it?

In residential applications wherever a modern design is required, including external walls in composite construction, upper-storey and ground-level extensions, and internal feature walls.


What are the key benefits?

Speed. The stepped shiplap on the long edges of Axon cladding means sheets are easily installed. Paint application is fast because the pre-primed sheets mean less paint and time is needed to achieve a high-quality finish. Finally, sheets are sized to fit common wall frame sizes, which means less waste and cutting.

 

 

Design options.  Whether you choose the smooth or grained surface texture, the vertical grooves - sharp and consistent, are a design alternative to typical horizontal features.The option of brad nailing minimises visual interruption. Axon™ cladding can also be used to add texture as an eave or soffit lining. Made from Scyon™, it will resist shrinking, swelling and cracking * to hold paint longer than wood, and can therefore be painted dark as well as light colours.

 

 

Durability. Axon cladding has a 10-year product warranty when installed and maintained correctly.

 

 

Enhances energy efficiency. When Axon cladding is used with the right insulation (and in accordance with James Hardie’s Wall System Thermal Performance Total R-Values Technical Supplement), an R-value of up to 2.8 can be achieved for the wall.

 

 

 

 

* When installed and maintained correctly.

FAQ for Scyon™ Axon™ cladding

Can Scyon ™ Axon™ cladding be stained?

Stains containing linseed oil are specifically designed for wood and may not be suitable for James Hardie cladding products, primed or unprimed.

Semi-transparent stains can vary in uniformity of appearance depending on method of application and conditions and will require a high level of skill and craftsmanship to achieve a uniform appearance.

Clear coats have not proven durable in exterior exposure and James Hardie considers them a maintenance item that may require application of a refurbishing sealer at regular intervals. James Hardie does not warrant the appearance or durability of semi-transparent stains and clear coats.

No. It is not recommended, as it has not been tested. We cannot advise or recommend that our customers do so.
