Hi Impact stronger 1.15g/cm3
These very strong hi impact Magnesia (MgSO4) products are up to 8-10 times stronger than plasterboard and enable a single 10mm sheet (CSIRO) to cover fire for FRL 90/90/90 (90 minutes), otherwise requiring 2 layers of 16mm Fyrchek and similar plasterboard,
50% less in materials, install costs and freight
This halves the material cost, site handling, installation, freight weight transport cost, crane up time, and halves the screw fixings materials cost. This all increases a project’s ROI.
MgSO4 cladding composites have no paper linings
These MgSO4 composites have no paper linings, so are better suited to wet areas and humid climates and all in one MULTI-PURPOSE material, covers FIRE, FLOODS ACOUSTICS, TERMITES, BACTERIA, MOULD and heavy IMPACTS, while providing a longer life and low maintenance life with nothing to wash way or rot, with no paper linings.
Better for climate planet and humanity
All these extra benefits in one material, while better addressing the lowering of CO2 emissions and having a high carbon sequester value, in retaining carbon emissions Carbon Capture Sequestration (New Scientist magazine USA).
Decreases tree destruction
This change will afford gradual reduction in the destruction of millions of oxygen-generating CO2 absorbing green trees to make (now not so cheap) paperlined plasterboard!
No changes for Trades
Set flushed joints same as plasterboard prime and paint
MgSO4 magnesia oxy-sulphate boards have recessed edges in cladding to use regular tapes compounds and provide a top class 4/5 surface painted (or rendered) finish. After priming, undercoat and 2 finish water-based paints with similar or lower m2 material cost half the time and half the material to complete installs in higher FRL.
Conclusions moving forward
Responsible architectural and all small and major constructionshould embrace these new greener technologies in pursuit of contributing as much as possible to the reduction in global warming – every step no matter how small is a contributor.
