1 Introduction James Hardie have a wide range of soffit linings and prefinished soffit linings that enable you to create the look you want. Cool, wide soffits and verandahs have, over the years, been a feature which specifiers have used to provide shade from the hot summer sun and to give UV protection to exterior paintwork and interior fabrics.

of these methods — tried and proven — is the use of wide soffits, verandahs and covered outdoor living areas. James Hardie products are resistant to fire and damage from moisture and rotting when installed and maintained as directed. James Hardie Eclipsa Eaves Lining, HardieGroove Soffit Lining, Silkline Soffit Lining, HardieFlex Eaves Lining, Hardiesoffit Lining and Villaboard Soffit Lining are not suitable for use as a cladding.

Today’s high energy costs demand that all avenues be explored to develop cost-efficient ways for keeping our homes cool. One

Eclipsa™

HardieGroove™

Eclipsatm Eaves Lining is a 4.5mm thick, pre-finished acrylic eave providing innovative style and enduring performance.

HardieGroovetm Soffit Lining has the charm of traditional tongue and groove timber panelling, but has all the qualities of a modern James Hardie fibre cement product. It’s perfect for enhancing design lines on modern buildings or renovating old villas and bungalows.

  EAVES LINING

• Easy to install, saving both time and money. • A slipsheet minimises surface marks on paint during transportation and installation.

  SOFFIT LINING

• HardieGroove Soffit Lining comes with a half groove length ways along the edge of the sheet to achieve concealed joints.

Silkline®   SOFFIT LINING

Villaboard®

Pre-finished Silkline® Soffit Linings are 4.5mm in thickness and comes as a complete, easy-to-install soffit lining with jointers, cappings, Fastfix fasteners and a simple two-piece scotia to complete a good-looking soffit.

Villaboard® Soffit Linings are 6mm and 9mm in thickness to suit both residential and commercial applications. The recessed edges are suitable for flush jointing to give a smooth flush finish. Ideal for larger sized soffits.

• Silkline Soffit Lining is the ideal lining for soffits, eaves, verandahs, carports and porches or wherever a decorative easy-clean ceiling lining is required, e.g. spa pools, kitchens and garages.

• The sheets are fully sanded to give a smoother face surface.

• When low maintenance building materials are your choice, Silkline Soffit Linings will last and meet these needs. In addition, they have a 10 year coating warranty to give you extra peace of mind.

  SOFFIT LINING

• Two long sheet edges are supplied with a recessed finish and site-cut edges can be readily ground on site. Other combinations are also available. Refer Table 3, page 5. • Square-edge sheets are also available. These sheets can be used for the alternative expressed, sealant-filled or uPVC joint finish.

2 Safe working practices WARNING - DO NOT BREATHE DUST AND CUT ONLY IN WELL VENTILATED AREA James Hardie products contain respirable crystalline silica which is considered by some international authorities to be a cause of cancer from some occupational sources. Breathing excessive amounts of respirable silica dust can also cause a disabling and potentially fatal lung disease called silicosis, and has been linked with other diseases. Some studies suggest smoking may increase these risks. During installation or handling: (1) work in outdoor areas with ample ventilation; (2) minimise dust when cutting by using either ‘Score and Snap’ knife, fibre cement shears or, where not feasible, use a HardieBlade™ Saw Blade and dust-reducing circular saw attached to a HEPA vacuum; (3) warn others in the immediate area to avoid breathing dust; (4) wear a properly-fitted, approved dust mask or respirator (e.g. P1 or P2) in accordance with applicable government regulations and manufacturer instructions to further limit respirable silica exposures. During clean-up, use HEPA vacuums or wet cleanup methods – never dry sweep. For further information, refer to our installation instructions and Safety Data Sheets available at www.jameshardie.co.nz.

FAILURE TO ADHERE TO OUR WARNINGS, SAFETY DATA SHEETS, AND INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS MAY LEAD TO SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH.

James Hardie recommended safe working practices CUTTING OUTDOORS 1. Position cutting station so that wind will blow dust away from user or others in working area. 2. Use one of the following methods based on the required cutting rate: BEST • Score and snap   • Hand guillotine   • Fibreshear BETTER • Dust reducing circular saw equipped with HardieBlade™ Saw Blade and HEPA vacuum extraction. GOOD • Dust reducing circular saw equipped with HardieBlade™ Saw Blade

CUTTING INDOORS • Cut only using score and snap, hand guillotine or fibreshears (manual, electric or pneumatic). • Position cutting station in well-ventilated area

sanding/rebating/DRILLING/OTHER MACHINING When sanding/rebating/drilling/machining you should always wear a P1 or P2 dust mask and warn others in the immediate area.

IMPORTANT NOTES: 1. For maximum protection (lowest respirable dust production), James Hardie recommends always using “Best” — level cutting methods where feasible 2. NEVER use a power saw indoors 3. NEVER use a circular saw blade that does not carry the HardieBlade™ logo 4. NEVER dry sweep — Use wet suppression or HEPA Vacuum 5. NEVER use grinders 6. Always follow tool manufacturer’s safety recommendations P1 or P2 respirators can be used in conjunction with above cutting practices to further reduce dust exposures. Additional exposure information is available at www.jameshardie.co.nz to help you determine the most appropriate cutting method for your job requirements. If concern still exists about exposure levels or you do not comply with the above practices, you should always consult a qualified industrial hygienist or contact James Hardie for further information.

James Hardie Eaves And Soffits Installation Manual February 2013 New Zealand

3 Framing Working instructions Refer to recommended Safe Working Practices before starting any cutting or machining of product.

Score and Snap Score and Snap is a fast and efficient method of cutting the product using special tungsten tipped Score and Snap knife. Preferably score on the face side of the product. Score against a straight edge and repeat the action to obtain adequate depth for clean break – normally 1/3 of sheet thickness. Snap upwards to achieve break. Smooth any rough edges with a rasp.

Hand Guillotine Make guillotine cut on the off-cut side of line to allow for the thickness of the blade.

3.1 TIMBER FRAME Timber framing must be in accordance with NZS 3604 Timber Frame Buildings. Specific design to NZS 3603 and AS/NZS 1170 can also be undertaken providing that: • the framing centres do not exceed those given in this specification • the framing member widths conform to this specification. Also refer to the Approved Document for NZBC Clause B2 ‘Durability’ and NZS 3602 (Timber and Wood-Based Products for use in Buildings) regarding timber treatment requirements and allowable moisture contents in timber for various components of the building. Also refer to the framing manufacturer’s literature for further guidance on the use of treated timber.

Fibreshear Heavy Duty

3.2 STEEL FRAME

An electrically powered, fast, clean and effortless way of cutting James Hardie building products, especially around curves such as archways. Make Fibreshear cut on the “off-cut” side of the line to allow for the thickness of the shear.

The figures in this brochure are drawn for timber framing. However, steel framing and furring channels can also be used.

HardieBlade™ Saw Blade

Steel framing members must be fabricated from light-gauge sheet steel 0.55mm thick minimum to 1.6mm maximum. If heavier sections are used difficulties may be experienced in fixing the self-drilling, self-tapping fasteners. Refer to specific details for the minimum flange width requirements.

The HardieBlade Saw Blade used with a dustreducing and HEPA vacuum extraction allows for fast, clean cutting of James Hardie fibre cement products. A dust-reducing saw uses a dust deflector or a dust collector connected to a vacuum system. When sawing, clamp a straight-edge to the sheet as a guide and run the saw base plate along the straight edge when making the cut.

Hole-Forming For smooth clean cut circular holes: Mark the centre of the hole on the sheet. Pre-drill a pilot hole. Using the pilot hole as a guide, cut the hole to the appropriate diameter with a hole saw fitted to a heavy duty electric drill.

For irregular holes:

All metal framing centres are to be the same as specified for timber frame in this manual.

Sheets must not be fixed directly to drawn steel or hot-rolled steel sections. These must first be battened out with ex 50mmthick (40mm minimum) timber battens or light-gauge metal furring channels. Screw-fix 6mm or thicker sheets only. Screw fixings can be finished flush or sunk a maximum of 0.5mm below the sheet surface ready for filling. NOTE: The fasteners must not be over driven as will reduce the holding capaciity of the sheet.

Small rectangular or circular holes can be cut by drilling a series of small holes around the perimeter of the hole then tapping out the waste piece from the sheet face. Tap carefully to avoid damage to sheets, ensuring that the sheet edges are properly supported.

3.3 FRAMING SET-OUT

Storage and Handling

For the framing set-out of 900mm and 1200mm-wide soffit refer to Figure 3.

All James Hardie building products should be stored to avoid damage, with edges and corners of the sheets protected from chipping. James Hardie building products must be installed in a dry state and be protected from rain during transport and storage. The product must be laid flat under cover on a smooth level surface clear of the ground to avoid exposure to water or moisture, etc.

Quality James Hardie conducts stringent quality checks to ensure that any product manufactured falls within our quality spectrum. It is the responsibility of the builder to ensure that the product meets aesthetic requirements before installation. James Hardie will not be responsible for rectifying obvious aesthetic surface variations following installation.

For the framing set-out of 450mm and 600mm-wide soffit refer to Figure 1. For the framing set-out of 750mm-wide soffits refer to Figure 2.

Pre-finished steel fascia/gutters When pre-finished steel fascia/gutters are used the soffit edge must be supported 4mm min. into fascia recess, similar to Figure 27. Ribbon board to be continuous for product fixing. NOTE: Because of the limited fascia groove available with some metal fascias a supporting ribbon board will be required with fixings at 300mm centres maximum. Pre-finished soffits can distort due to surface tension when adequate edge support is not provided.

This installation manual covers the use of James Hardie Eaves and Soffits for buildings within the scope of NZS 3604. For all other buildings specific engineering design is required.

Figure 1: Eaves and soffits 450mm, 600mm wide

*HardieFlex Sheet 6mm or Villaboard Lining 6mm must be used in EH Wind Zone with soffit bearers maximum 600mm centres.

3.4 Batten requirements Battens are required when sheets are fixed over: • Gypsum board exceeding 20mm in thickness • Softboard, polystyrene or similar • Concrete, masonry block or brick. Timber battening is to be a minimum of 35mm deep x 40mm wide to achieve adequate sheet nail penetration.

Figure 2: Eaves and soffits 750mm wide

Steel battens must be minimum 0.55mm thick, 23mm deep and have a bearing surface of 38mm min. Battens must be galvanised to meet the durability requirements of the New Zealand Building Code (NZBC) and fixed to manufacturer’s specifications. All battening centres and sheet fixing is to be strictly in accordance with the framing and fixing required by this manual. Care must be taken to ensure the battens are packed and aligned to give a true even surface for the sheets to be fixed. Check the face of the battens with a long straight-edge before fixing sheets.

3.5 SKILLION ROOF DESIGN When installing soffit linings direct to skillion roof framing ensure that sufficient ventilation has been provided within the roof space. The temperatures within these smaller roof spaces can reach extreme levels in certain conditions and this can cause cracking in flush stopped joints due to excessive movement in framing. The framing in skillion soffits and ceiling also need engineering design consideration. General design guide is to provide control joints at 4.8m x 3.6m in either direction when fixing to this type of framing. For narrow strip soffits provide control joints at 4.8m centres.

Notes 1. HardieFlex® nails are the usual fixing method for Hardiesoffit® Lining. The Fastfix method can also be used as an alternative. 2. When Fastfix fastenings are used refer to Table 7 and Figure 25 and 27.

4.1 GENERAL Refer to Table 12 and Figure 1, 2 and 3 regarding nail fixing centres, for framing and types of fasteners. The eaves/soffits must be sealed against claddings to minimise moisture ingress behind the claddings. The roof must have been installed before installing the soffits linings. Where the soffits are sloping upwards away from the wall, a mechanical flashing must be provided in the soffit to wall junction. The flashing is fixed under soffit lining and laps over the face of cladding by 35mm min. Refer to Figure 18.

4.1.4 Fastfix fasteners Fastfix fasteners (38mm long) can be used as an alternative fixing for prefinished soffit and ceiling systems in conjunction with adhesives. Drill a 6mm-diameter hole through the sheet and framing to insert the Fastfix fastener. In timber the hole must be 40mm deep.

4.1.5 MAsking TAPE The recommended masking tape for use with Silkline Soffit Lining and Eclipsa Eaves Lining is 3M Scotch Blue painters tape 2090 or Sellotape 5855 longlife. This tape can only be left on the Silkline Soffit Lining or Eclipsa Eaves Lining for maximum 7 days, otherwise tape removal may cause paint loss.

4.1.6 FIRE RATED SOFFITS

All soffit linings must either be installed with a grooved fascia, refer Figure 13, or with exterior cladding which forms a drip edge below the soffit lining by 15mm min. Soffit linings are generally fitted into the recess formed in fascia board to form the drip edge.

A fire rating of 30 or 60 minutes can be achieved in a soffit when using 6mm or 9mm Villaboard Soffit Lining or 6mm or 7.5mm HardieFlex Sheet when James Hardie FRR wall systems are used. For full details refer to the James Hardie Fire and Acoustic Design Manual or Ask James Hardie on 0800 808 868.

4.1.2 STRUCTURAL CEILING DIAPHRAGMS

4.2 Fastener Durability

HardieFlex Eaves Lining and Villaboard Soffit Lining are suitable for use in structural ceiling diaphragms as per NZS 3604. Refer to the James Hardie Bracing Design Manual.

Fasteners used in external applications must meet the minimum durability requirements of the NZBC. NZS 3604 specifies the requirements for fixing’s material to be used in relation to the exposure conditions and are summarised in Table 15.

4.1.3 CURVED APPLICATIONS HardieFlex Eaves Lining and Villaboard Soffit Lining can be used for curved applications. The minimum bending radii are shown below.

NOTES 1. Use of 6mm thick sheets will minimise the deflection and enhance the impact resistance. 2. Sheets can be jointed as per Section 4. 3. Do not screw fix 4.5mm thick sheets.

NOTES 1. Do not place nails or screws within 100mm of the adhesive daubs. 2. Suitable fixings are HardieDrive stainless steel 30mm x 7g wood screws, HardieFlex galvanised nails 40 x 2.8mm and 316 stainless steel nails 40 x 2.8mm. 3. Use only stainless steel fixings in sea spray zones. 4. When butt jointing short ends of HardieGroove Lining in ceiling/ soffit applications, the short edges must be cut square and have chamfer formed.

4.4 HardieFlex EAVES LINING

Nails must be finished flush with the sheet surface. Screw heads can be finished 1-2mm below the sheet surface and stopped.

Hardiesoffit Lining up to a max. width of 600mm can be jointed up to a maximum 150mm off the ceiling/soffit batten when using uPVC jointers.

For framing and fixing schedules refer to Section 3. All sheet edges are to be supported by framing or a fascia board. Fixings are to be at 200mm centres to all framing (refer Figures1 and 2).

In steel framing the fasteners should be driven as close as possible to the stud corners to avoid deflection of the stud flange.

When these ceilings are wider than one sheet width the sheets can be fixed to the framing provided the control joints are placed to limit the bay size to 7.2m x 4.8m maximum.

4.7.3 NARROW-STRIP FLUSH-JOINTED SOFFITS AND CEILINGS In these applications sheets must be jointed on the framing as shown in Figures 1, 2, 15 and 16. Control joints, as shown in Figure 9, must be located at a distance as specified in Table 16 above. Sheets must not be fixed to the bottom cord of roof trusses.

laid in an offset pattern so that adjacent end joints do not coincide. Timber ceiling battens must comply with the requirements of NZS 3604 or the specific engineering design. Steel ceiling battens must be a minimum of 37mm wide x 23mm deep x 0.55mm thick and have a bearing surface of 37mm minimum. Battens must be galvanised steel (275 g/m2 zinc coating), have a suitable coating to meet the durability requirements and be fixed to the manufacturer’s specifications. Refer to the flush-jointing and finishing procedures on pages 21-24. For specific engineering design projects consideration must be given to framing deflections expected due to loadings and appropriate selection of sheet jointing method must be made. For skillion roof design refer to Clause 3.5 for further design consideration. NOTE 1. It is recommended that flush stopping of joints is suitable when using recessed edge Villaboard Lining. 2. When nogs not installed for perimeter support, the unsupported sheet edges across the framing must be supported by back blocking using a 300 – 400mm wide Villaboard Lining strip adhered to rear face and centred between the framing.

4.7.5 CONTROL JOINTS The ceilings must be divided into bays not exceeding 7.2 x 4.8m. To permit movement, control joints must be formed at the perimeter of each bay (refer Figures 11, 12, 13 and 14) and at the junction of large ceilings with narrow passage strips or where there is a change in direction (also refer Figures 12 and 13). Each bay must be independent of adjacent bays and the surrounding building structure. When the ceilings or soffits contain sloping areas then control joint centres must be reduced to coincide with the slope

change lines (refer Figure 14). Framing members (to which the sheet is fixed) must not continue across this control joint. Sheets shall be fixed across the ceiling joists or ceiling battens (refer Figures 15 and 16). Figures 12 and 13 show control joints with the battens running in the same direction as the sheet joint.

Figure 12: Steel ceiling batten control joint detail

4.7.6 Fixing OPTION One A smooth surface finish is obtained by minimising the visible sheet fixings. For painted finishes the combined nail or screw and adhesive method gives this superior finish (refer Figure 19). Fix at 200mm centres down each sheet end with edge fixings in each joist or batten. Double-fix in the centre of each joist or batten (refer Figure 19). Do not place nails or screws within 100mm of adhesive daubs. Daubs of wallboard adhesive 25mm diameter and 15mm thick must be applied to the intermediate joists or battens at 250mm centres (refer Figure 19). When nogs are not installed for perimeter support, the unsupported edges between ceiling joists or battens must be supported with back blocking using a 300-400mm wide Villaboard Lining strip adhered to rear face and centred between framing.

4.7.9 Bulkhead In Soffits The bulkhead made in soffits is generally used to carry the services through them and they can be lined with Villaboard Soffit Lining. The box framing provided must be rigid enough to carry its weight and/or services. It must provide support to all sheet edges and joints. The external/internal corner of a bulkhead can either be stopped using a James Hardie PVC corner mould or a ‘proprietary paper faced rigid spine’* corner mould. *Paper faced rigid spine corner mould is generally available in the market.

4.7.10 Square-edge Villaboard LINING ceilings and soffits Square-edge Villaboard Lining is used for butt-joint; expressed-joint or uPVC-jointed ceilings.

4.8 Titan facade panel NOTES 1. All surfaces to receive adhesive must be clean, free of dust, oil etc. 2. Ensure daubs of adhesive never coincide with permanent fastener points, as adhesive shrinkage may cause fastener head protrusion.

4.7.7 Fixing OPTION Two For an alternative nail or screw-fixing method, fasteners are to be driven along the sheet perimeter at 200mm centres and along intermediate ceiling battens at 250mm centres (refer Figure 16). When nogs are not installed for perimeter support, the unsupported edges between ceiling joists or battens must be supported with back blocking using a 300-400mm wide Villaboard Lining strip adhered to rear face and centred between framing.

4.9 internal swimming pool application For fixing Villaboard Lining and HardieGroove Lining in internal swimming pool areas; • The sheets must be back and edge sealed before installation. • When fixing Villaboard Lining to the ceiling under a skillion roof, roof ventilation must be considered to minimise thermal movement and sheet joint cracking. • All Villaboard Lining recessed sheet joints must be stopped. Alternatively, when using square edge Villaboard Lining, the sheet joint must be butted over an Inseal 3259 tape with an appropriate flexible sealant in the 1mm joint. • All HardieGroove Lining joints must have continuous bead of sealant applied to edge of sheet before butting together. Only stainless steel fasteners must be used. • Full perimeter fixing required. • In addition, it is recommended that H3.1 treated timber ceiling battens are used to resist decay due to higher condensation levels present in this area.

Figure 17: Sheets laid along ceiling joints (expressed or butt joints)

4.7.8 Column or wall abutments Soffit sheeting must be free to move independently from the building element it abuts with. This is critical for flush-jointed sheeting, otherwise cracking at the joint may occur.

6 JOINTING AND FINISHING FOR VILLABOARD LINING

Artificial lighting needs to be considered in relation to soffits.

6.1 general

Where glancing light is an issue its effect can be lessened by:

Villaboard Soffit Lining is finished with paint complying with parts 7, 8, 9 and 10 of AS 3730. The application and maintenance must be in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications.

• Artificial light shading devices.

note: Before flush stopping sheet edges must be sealed with Multiplast resin, water proofing admixture or other similar products.

6.3 LEVEL OF FINISHES

6.2 glancing light In some instances, due to glancing light, set joints may be noticeable in Villaboard Lining walls, especially where paint finishes have a high gloss level. Work closely with your builder or designer to minimise this.

• The use of light coloured, matt finish paints.

Different levels of finishes are typically specified for different applications. Higher levels of finishes are used to address the glancing light issues with painted Villaboard Soffit Lining referred to above. A description of the various levels of finishes and the jointing/coating requirements can be found in Table 17.

Table 17 Levels of Finishes Level of Definition* finish

Typical jointing/setting

Finish

0

This level of finish may be useful in temporary construction.

No stopping, taping, finishing or accessories are required. The work is confined to gluing or screwing/nailing sheets in place.

For use in areas where finishing and stopping is not considered necessary.

1

For use in plenum areas above ceilings, in areas where the work would generally be concealed, or in building service corridors and other areas not normally open to public view.

Joints and corner joints will be set with James Hardie Base Coat reinforced with perforated paper tape.

Surface free from excess jointing compound. Tool marks and ridges are generally acceptable.

2

For use in warehouse, storage or other areas where surface appearance is not of primary concern.

Joints and corner joints will be set with James Hardie Base Coat reinforced with perforated paper tape and James Hardie Top Coat.

Minor tool marks and ridges are generally acceptable.

3

For use in areas which are to receive heavy or medium texture (spray or hand applied) finishes or where heavy wall paper coverings are to be applied as the final decoration. This level of finish is not generally suitable where smooth painted surfaces or light to medium wall coverings are specified.

Joints and corner joints will be set with James Hardie Base Coat reinforced with perforated paper tape and James Hardie Top Coat.

This level of finish must be sufficiently smooth to accept heavy vinyl, tiles or textured coatings without blemishes.

4

This is generally the accepted level of finish for domestic construction. It is used where light textures or wall coverings and smooth textured finishes and satin/flat/low sheen paints are illuminated by noncritical lighting.

Refer to flush jointing recommendations on page 22.

For use where light-texture coatings or wallpaper or other lightweight wall coverings are to be applied. For painted finishes in non-critical lighting areas flat and low-sheen textured paints are to be applied. Gloss and semi-gloss paints are not generally suitable over this level of finish as any minor blemish will show under critical light.

5

This level of finish is for use where gloss or semi-gloss paints are specified or where critical lighting conditions occur on satin, flat or low sheet paints.

All joints and corner joints will have tape embedded in James Hardie Base Coat applied over all joints, angles, fastener heads and accessories. This application is applicable to recessed edge sheets only. The use of square edge sheets will require a high build application and coating finish.

The weight, texture and sheen level or wall coverings applied over this level of finish must be carefully evaluated. Joints and fasteners must be adequately concealed if the wall-covering material is lightweight, contains limited pattern, has a gloss finish, or any combination of these features is present. Unbacked vinyl wall coverings are not suitable over this level of finish.

Refer to page 23 steps 1–4 for jointing.

This level of finish is for use where gloss, semigloss, low-sheen or non-textured paints are specified or where critical lighting conditions occur.

Final James Hardie Base Coat application should be feathered out to approximately 200mm + each side of the joint. Then a full skim coat of James Hardie Top Coat must be applied over entire sheet surface in order to achieve a uniform finish. This application is applicable to recessed edge sheets only. The use of square edge sheets will require a high build application and coating finish.

6.4 paint finishes

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS

Prior to application of paint finishes, remove any residual sanding dust and ensure the surface is suitable for paint application.

Table 18

Always follow the paint manufacturer’s recommendations for paint suitability, mixing and application.

James Hardie Base Coat Mixing Instructions Step 1

First, add 1 part of clean water into bucket.

NOTES 1. Use of a ‘sealer coat’ or ‘preparation undercoat’ is recommended. 2. Do not tile ceilings.

Then add 2½ parts James Hardie Base Coat powder Allow to soak for 1 minute.

6.5 VILLABOARD SOFFIT LINING JOINTING and STOPPING

Step 2

Mix for 1½ – 2 minutes using paint mixer or equivalent. (approximately 2500-3000rpm)

Villaboard Soffit Lining joints are set with James Hardie jointing compounds reinforced with perforated paper tape. Recessed edge sheet joints require joint setting by using the jointing products outlined. The performance of joints is the responsibility of the installer, as this is governed by the installation practices and the standard of workmanship applied. However, James Hardie considers that the recommendations provided in Table 17 describe best practice to reduce the risk of joint cracking or other problems. There are various factors that can affect the performance of jointing compounds on edge recessed fibre cement substrates. These factors include the framing, movement, installation quality, vibrations, moisture, humidity, temperature, etc. To achieve satisfactory joint performance these factors need to be carefully considered and understood by the installer and designer when positioning joints and selecting jointing compounds. Furthermore, it is important that the jointing compound used has the physical attributes required to perform considering these factors. James Hardie compounds have been specifically developed for use with Villaboard Soffit Lining. In addition, provision for movement needs to be made by the installation of control joints. See page 16.

COMPOUND COVERAGE 1kg of Base Coat will provide approximately 5 lm of standard joints. 1kg of Top Coat will provide approximately 5.6 lm of standard joints.

NOTE Follow the mixing instructions carefully when mixing James Hardie Base Coat and Top Coat.

James Hardie Base Coat is NOT like the plaster based compounds. Initial mixing will indicate a dry mix and further mixing WITHOUT further addition of water will deliver the ideal workable paste. Warning: Inadequate or over mixing can lead to poor workability and can cause performance issues. Do not hand mix.

Step 3

The mix at this stage should be consistently smooth. Based on the environmental conditions (i.e. temperature and humidity) you may add maximum of 25ml of water per 1Kg of base coat powder in the mix at this stage to adjust workability. Mix it well. (Note: Adding excess water than the recommendation may delay the drying of base coat and may cause joint cracking due to excessive shrinkage.)

Mix should be glossy and smooth. There should be no lumps in the mix.

Important Notes:

1. Do not apply James Hardie Base Coat in temperatures above 40º C or below 5º C. 2. Allow the compounds to dry before applying the next coat. The drying time will vary between 12 to 24 hours depending upon the weather conditions. 3. Site cut and site recessed sheet edges must be sealed with an acrylic sealer e.g. Dulux Acraprime 501/1, Dulux Primercryl or similar product. 4. In corners, use James Hardie uPVC internal/external corner mould primed with Dulux Primerlock or similar. A ‘GIB® Goldline™ Platinum’ corner mould can also be used. 5. Use only perforated paper tapes in straight joints. 6. It is recommended that one (1) base coat bag is mixed in three (3) portions. 7. Before stopping the sheet edges, Multiplast Resin or a similar product in diluted form must be applied over the sheet edges. Mix the resin as per the manufacturers recommendations.

Product Life:

James Hardie Base Coat has a shelf life of 12 months in unopened bags when stored in a cool dry place. James Hardie Base Coat has a bag life of 1 month if opened bags are resealed and stored in a cool dry place.

22

James Hardie Eaves And Soffits Installation Manual February 2013 New Zealand

6.6 Set joints Step 1 — Preparation Ensure that the recesses are clean and free of dust and contaminants. Sheet edges must be sealed with Multiplast resin, water proofing admixture or other similar products. If working conditions are hot and dry, dampen the area around the joint prior to working.

Step 3 — Embed Tape Firmly embed the perforated paper tape centrally into the joint using a 50mm broad knife. Ensure that there are no voids under the tape and remove excess compounds.

NOTE The jointing method shown below provides a Level 4 finish. For more information about this and other finishes refer to page 21.

Step 2 — First Coat Apply James Hardie Base Coat to fill the recess with a 150mm broad knife.

Step 4 — Thin Layer Immediately cover tape with a thin layer of James Hardie Base Coat applied with a 150mm broadknife.

NOTE Steps 5, 6 and 7 are only required for paint and wall paper finish.

James Hardie Eaves And Soffits Installation Manual February 2013 New Zealand

Step 5 — Second Coat

Step 7 — Fastener Heads

When the first coat is fully dry, use a 200mm wide second coat trowel to apply the James Hardie Base Coat. Apply this coat approximately 180mm wide, laid down over the recess and feather the edges.

Apply a finishing coat of James Hardie Base Coat to fastener heads, feathering out the edges. Allow to fully dry before sanding.

Step 6 — Finishing Coat

6.7 PAINTING

Ensure the second coat is fully dry. Using a finishing trowel, apply a coat of James Hardie Top Coat 280mm wide centrally over the joint and feather out the edges. Allow to dry fully before sanding. Sand with a 180 grit sand paper to achieve a smooth finish for painting.

Hardiesoffit Lining, HardieFlex Eaves Lining, Villaboard Soffit Lining and HardieGroove Soffit Lining sheets are to have a minimum of two coats of acrylic paint applied after fixing in order to meet the requirements of the NZBC. All sheets must be coated within 3 months of installation. Use quality 100% acrylic paints. Economy paints are not recommended because generally they are less well bound, less moisture resistant and more prone to mould growth. In all cases the manufacturer’s specification for the selected paint must be followed. Note that some paints require an undercoat before applying finish coats. Damp, shady situations, proximity to bush, agricultural paddocks or seaspray environments may induce an extra tendency to mould growth. Use mould-inhibiting and alkaline-resistant undercoats and consult the paint manufacturer for details of maximum mouldresistant paints. Before painting, remove any surface grime or other contaminants and ensure the Hardiesoffit Lining, HardieFlex Eaves Lining, Villaboard Soffit Lining and HardieGroove Soffit Lining is dry. Paint must not be applied when the air temperature is below 10˚C. When using uPVC moulds avoid dark colours (paints must have light reflection of 40% or more) as excessive movement may cause buckling of the uPVC when exposed to direct sunlight. Enamel-based paints can be used, utilising a three-coat system. For full details apply to the selected paint manufacturer before commencing the work.
