Magnesium Oxide Boards are inorganic and has no toxic inputs The product is naturally cured using no energy through cold fusion. This ensures relatively low impact on the environment.
Magnesium Oxide (MgO) or Magnesia is a naturally occurring non-toxic inorganic mineral. This is fired and crushed to a talcum powder like consistently and mixed into a Magnesium Chloride solution. Magnesium Chloride (MgCl2) Is mixed into an aqueous solution, to which Magnesium Oxide dust is added and mixed into a cementitious slurry. Perlite (PO4) Is a form of Obsidian characterised by spherulites from by the cracking of volcanic glass during cooling. It is used widely as insulation and added to the panel to boost its resistance to fire.
Furthermore, it does not off-gas. It contains no formaldehyde, fly ash or crystalline silica – inputs found in wood and gypsum based building materials. It employs a low energy manufacturing process, as much as 50% less than competing building products and actually absorbs carbon dioxide from the atmosphere during its exothermic curing process.
Glass Fibre Mesh, a specially developed proprietary mesh design, is woven through the panel, giving it its unique high-performance structural properties. Recycled Wood Fibres are ground and mixed into the slurry to act as a binding agent to assist with the general performance of the product. They are completely saturated in the slurry, thus rendering them inorganic.
