  • Concrete Textured Surface Panel  is a fiber cement panel covered with a thin layer of concrete hand-made in Montreal. It is thin, ultralight, durable and resistant to fire and humidity. It has a look and feel similar to "real" concrete.


  • Metallic Surface Panel is a fiber cement panel covered with a thin layer of concrete which has a metallic appearance. This metal finish is obtained using a mixture of recycled and natural metal dust.


  • Concrete Surface panel  is a fiber cement panel covered with a microlayer of concrete.


  • Millimeter concrete surface  is a coating composed of very fine mortar and is colored by pigmentation.

 Concrete Textured Surface panels must not be installed on supports exposed to intense heat of more than 200°C (392°F). For a fireplace surround installation, it is recommended to refer to the fireplace manufacturer's recommendations for the list of recommended materials.


Here are other recommendations:


  •   The heat coming from the fireplace must not directly lick the concrete skin.
  •   There must either be a baffle or the concrete skin must be installed at least 16” from the upper edge of the fireplace window.


 It is important to note that you should avoid using metallic Surface panels as heat could damage the color of these panels.


 Millimeter Concrete Surface can be applied around your fireplace.

 No, The Surface Wizard products cannot be installed outdoors. They are made for interior application only!

It is important to use a construction adhesive that is not water-based to install the panels.


The Surface Wizard recommends using Adbond Extreme Adhesive 5692 to secure panels to a substrate. 

It is available to order here.


  Never use adhesive cement!
