Benefits of Magnesium Oxide Board
Imagine living in a home where you don’t have to fear fires, mould or pests. Magnesium Oxide Board (MgO Board) is a revolutionary material that has made this dream a reality. The system used to create homes with MgO boards, instead of drywall or cement, was developed to create securer and stronger homes so the families in them can enjoy a healthier and safer life.
MgO boards are made up of Magnesium Oxide, which is put into a cement mixture and turned into thin panels. Through this process, the panels become usable for residential construction. In places of the home where you may generally find plywood, or cement, you can now find these innovative new materials with many benefits and features.
One of these major benefits is the waterproof factor of MgO. Magnesia board may be absorbent, but when exposed to water, it will not degrade. This means, compared to traditional home building products, you will have a more durable, and longer lasting home.
Impermeable to Fire
MgO Board has been certified as an official fire-resistant material. It exceeds all fire testing requirements and causes absolutely no smoke or flame spread. Many fire experiments have been done to compare MgO material versus traditional material and Magnesium Oxide Board Panels always come out on top.
MgO is a material that insects actually don’t like. Termites, ants, rats and other pests cannot even eat the materials that make up these panels, meaning a lack of interest in consuming your home. You can rest easy knowing that the exterminator won’t be needing to come to your house anytime soon.
Mould Resistant & Non-Toxic
Magnesia Board contains zero volatile organic compounds, which means a healthier living environment for you and your family. MgO boards panels are also antimicrobial, meaning there is no support for the growth of mold or mildew. Mold can be a major cause of sickness, especially in wet climates. You will not have to face much mould when your home is built with mold resisting materials like MgO.

FIRE EXPERIMENT VIDEO
Check out our video showing the fire resistance experiment. You can see by the end that the side of the structure with MgO Boards is still standing, while the other side is completely disintegrated.
