“What’s difference between mgo board and fiber cement board?” A frequent question asked by many customers.
Before say something, we should think about which product category does mgo board exactly belongs to?
In my point of view, mgo board belongs to CBPB – cement bonded wood particle board which has been listed in building materials category in both Europe and America. mgo board made some upgrates:
1,mgo board use magnesium oxide cement as binder,it has lighter weight and better fireproof than portland cement.
2,mgo board composite multi-layers of glass mesh fiber, impact resistant and flexibility increased.
3,mgo board is entirely recyclable product, use green raw materials and low carbon production and curing method.
Fiber cement board is a good building board, made of portland cement and paper pulp, compress into a high density flat sheet. It is heavy and hard, good dimensional, weather resistant expect frost, low impact resistant, not resist to shear and lower performance in fire test.
Mgo board has many advantages than fiber cement board, lighter weight, more flexible, higher impact resistant, resist to shear force, good performance in fire test, just don’t forget mgo board has larger wet expansion during wet and dry. Frame position, screw numbers, waterproof is important.
