MgO Board Benefits and Features
MagPanel® - The Healthiest Building Material
MagPanel® has been designed to replace plywood, oriented strand board, fiber cement and gypsum based sheet building products. It offers superior structural and high-impact strength, stiffness, durability and fire-resistance.
- Class A1 fire rated product (Highest fire rating than the national standard).
- Scores a 0/0 rating on the ASTM E84 / UL 723 Flame Spread and Smoke Developed Index.
- No plywood, OSB or drywall panel can claim this.
- Releases up to 30 lbs. of water as vapor during a fire event, helping to cool and contain the fire.
- Maintains its structural stability when slightly bent.
- Does not warp.
- Does not swell.
- Does not delaminate.
- Long period exposure to moisture however is not recommended.
- The Perfect choice for people who suffer from Asthma.

- No carpenter ants.
- No wood boring insects.
- Completely recyclable.
- Landfill friendly – no leaching of toxic inputs into the water table.
- Acts as a nutrient when it is ground up and sprinkled into the soil.
- Low energy manufacturing process.
- Captures carbon dioxide CO2 during the curing process.
- MagPanel® gains its strength and resistance from very strong bonds between magnesium and oxygen atoms that form magnesium oxide crystals (with the chemical formula MgO).
- Mineral based green building material. It is freeze/thaw tested for 36 months.
- resistant to extreme cold or heat so can be build anytime of the year.
- Won’t warp when re-dried.
- Does not degrade in wet areas.
- Does not provide an environment for bacteria spores to spread.
