Magnesium Oxide (or Magnesia) is a material which is being increasingly used within construction. Magnesia is a versatile mineral which can be used as part of a cement mixture and cast into thin cement panels and cured. This is then used for a range of residential and commercial building applications. Variations in MGO board possess properties such as fire resistance, mold and mildew control and acoustic properties.
MGO board is used in place of traditional gypsum drywall. It is also used in various other construction applications such as fascias, soffit, wall sheathing and also as a tile backing material. It’s not paperfaced and is available in a range of sizes to suit the application. MGO board is available in various finishes including smooth face, rough, utility as well as a range of different densities.
- Tile backer
- Shaft liners
MGO Board is a more environmentally-friendly material than some other more traditional building materials. The production of MgO is energy efficient and produces few greenhouse gases. This is a potential factor in the increasing popularity of the material.
Magnesium Oxide Board is slightly absorptive, meaning that it is possible to paint and bond to the surface.
