When sourcing eco-friendly building materials for your next project, don’t limit yourself to traditional options.
Embrace the future of construction with MagPanel®, the next-gen eco-friendly building solution.
What Exactly is MagPanel®?
MagPanel® is a special type of magnesium oxide board. It’s a mineral-based building material that is far superior to plywood, oriented strand board, fiber cement, and gypsum-based sheet building products. It provides exceptional structural and high-impact strength, stiffness, durability, and fire-resistance.
You may be familiar with regular magnesium oxide (MgO) boards, popular alternatives to traditional building products. They are preferred because they are easy to work with and fire resistant.
So, how is MagPanel® special? It is an improved MgO board that is made using sulfate instead of chloride.
It stands out as a versatile building panel suitable for a variety of construction uses, both indoors and outdoors.
It’s lightweight, strong, fireproof, and sound insulating. And best of all, MagPanel® is the ultimate eco-friendly building material!
How is MagPanel® different to regular MgO boards?
Think of these boards as siblings in the construction world. Both are composed of magnesium oxide (MgO). Yet each has its unique ingredient: For MagPanel®, its sulfate, while for traditional MgO boards, it’s chloride.
No More Weeping!
Sulfate based boards have a huge advantage over chloride-based boards. Traditional MgO boards tend to “weep” or release chloride ions when exposed to high humidity levels, causing corrosive damage over time.
With its sulfate composition, MagPanel® is free from this problem, making it a safer, reliable and durable choice for your building projects.
Unlocking the Power of Sulfate – A Clever Composition
MagPanel® is more than just a construction material; it’s a statement of your commitment to sustainability, health, and environmental responsibility.
With its sulfate-based composition, MagPanel® offers superior durability, improved indoor air quality, and a greener construction process – all while maintaining the versatility of traditional MgO boards.

When it comes to construction, durability is key. MagPanel® offers long-term performance even in challenging conditions. It is resistant to moisture, pests, and decay, ensuring the longevity of your building.
Even when subjected to brief periods of moisture exposure, the panels retain their structural soundness. They resist any tendencies to warp, swell, or delaminate under such circumstances.
MagPanel® is different from wooden boards because it doesn’t attract bugs or animals. The secret sauce? It is not their preferred food source, so these pests have no reason to invade or damage the material.
4. It is Easy to Install
MagPanel® is easy to install. Compared to other products, it is stronger, lighter, and more durable. It is easy to score and cut and holds very well to screws and nails.
5. It’s the Ideal Choice for Your Family’s Wellbeing
Say bye to irritants and allergens
MagPanel® comes as a breath of fresh air for those with chemical sensitivities, including individuals suffering from Asthma. This is because it is free from fly ash, formaldehyde, or crystalline silica – ingredients known to cause health problems.
Forget about fungus
Owing to its antimicrobial properties, MagPanel® stands up against mold, mildew, fungus, and rot. Magnesium disrupts the life cycle of fungi, by interfering with their defense systems and causing damage to their cell structure.
6. It is the Best Fire-Resistant Option
MagPanel® boasts a Class A1 fire rating, which is the highest fire rating according to the national standard. This rating means the material provides the highest level of fire protection by not spreading flames or emitting smoke.
It does not contribute to the spread of fire or the creation of smoke when exposed to it. That beats other fire-resistant materials like plywood, OSB, or drywall panel.
MagPanel® can release up to 30 lbs. of water vapor during a fire. This helps to cool the surrounding environment and contain the spread of the fire.
MagPanel® is a Game Changer
Venture into a greener tomorrow with MagPanel® – a robust, fire-resistant, and secure construction material. By using sulfate instead of oxide, it boosts our planet’s well-being and supports our individual health.
