In case you haven't heard, there's a new multi-purpose building material available nationwide across the U.S. MagPanel® is a versatile, eco-friendly Magnesium Oxide Board, also called magnesium oxide panels or MgO panels, with a wide range of construction applications beginning with the inside for wall, ceiling and subflooring (for example tile backer), and outside for exterior trim, to roof decking and lap siding.
Magnesium oxide wallboards are factory-produced, non-insulating sheathing board products that are used for various construction applications.
MgO board is made from magnesium oxide. Magnesium oxide is a type of mineral cement, and contains magnesium (which has a chemical symbol of Mg) and oxygen (chemical symbol of O). Magnesium oxide panels are similar to drywall or cement board, but is stronger, fireproof, and has a higher resistance to mold, mildew, moisture, and weather.
MgO board is water-resistant but should not be directly exposed to the elements.
