Why Magnum Board?
It ticks all the boxes of importance to sustainable development. It allows wall systems to breathe, helping to create good indoor air quality. Its composition is engineered to eliminate the toughest construction problems: fire, water, insects, humidity, mould, poor air quality, bracing, mildew, impact and toxins. Literally billions of dollars are spent every year as a result of damage and health impacts caused by these problems. It is a Health Based Building Product completely free of toxins. It has been subjected to some of the toughest building materials testing regimes. Such as UL 2000 hour freeze thaw test simulating 20 years of wear and tear in all climatic conditions and AC386. It is dimensionally stable in freeze, thaw, heat and humidity cycles. Excellent adhesion properties allow fantastic finishes with paint, stucco, wallpaper, stone, tile, brick, HPL, timber veneer and much more. Overall installation and life cycle costs ensure Magnum Board is very competitively priced due to its high resilience to all conditions and ‘one product fits all’ positioning. It is both easy and very safe to install.
Is Magnum Board considered a sustainable Health Based Building product?
Yes. Magnum Board is a mineral product, completely free of toxins such as asbestos, formaldehyde or silica. It can be disposed of with no impacts to the environment. It is manufactured completely at ambient temperature.
Is Magnum Board considered a negative CO 2 product?
Yes. The Magnum Board product line is CO 2 negative meaning the product and/or its process absorbs CO 2 and turns it into magnesium carbonate and that remains in the board until the board is retired from service, in which case, the magnesium carbonate can be recycled to make MgO and ultimately recycled into more Magnum Board.
Is Magnum Board vapour permeable?
Yes. Magnum Board comes with vapour diffusion test data of importance to constructing breathable wall systems (Foreverbreathe™).
Has Magnum Board been tested?
Yes. Magnum Board has been subjected to some of the toughest testing being conducted on building materials today including the freeze/thaw and 2,000 hour weathering test which simulates 20 years of wear and tear in all climatic conditions including high heat and snow. Magnum Board products are appraised for use worldwide and New Zealand and Australia. Our factory is ISO certified and is audited on a quarterly basis by Underwriters Laboratories (UL). Every Magnum Board product comes with independent test data and history of use.
