...for an environmentally friendly, salt, fire, moisture, heat
and mold resistant construction board that insects and rodents can't feed
on, and a better impact resistant, sound attenuating material.

We are once again proud to be used in building
notable film sets for Carrie (2013 film) by MGM & Screen Gems Production,
for the remake of the 1976 thriller of the original Stephen King novel. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carrie_(2013_film)
Magnesiacore was used for
building film sets to undergo pyrotechnical special effects in the making of
the Jim Sheridan film Dream House (2011), a Universal Pictures & Morgan
Creek Production http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dream_House_(film)
Our product and technical recommendations saved the set crew
significant time and money building safer, reusable
non-combustible film sets.
Whether you are building a natatorium, redoing your
indoor swimming pool
drywall ceiling or ceiling tile, wainscoting parts of your home or spa, or just redoing your basement
paneling or garage walls, magnesiacore technology can help you with a
better, faster, and easier DIY job.
A new superior non-combustible construction board material with numerous applications in commercial projects of all kinds.
Revolutionary solid improvement when used in lieu of gypsum drywall and/or
cement board, for indoor and outdoor applications. Provides a
hard, long lasting surface that looks and feels like hard cement plastering, but
is fireproof and resistant to damage from water, humidity, freezing, organisms, chlorine, salt and more. The ideal
wallboard for pool buildings, garages, kitchen and wet areas or any of the more demanding
Magnesiacore board in sheets can be applied to wood structures (below) and/or metal framing (above) or directly onto steel structure and masonry work with mechanical fasteners (screws, bolts, rivets, brads, staples, nails) and can also be used to laminate over existing surfaces using adhesives and cements. Used with a variety of joint fillers for
different levels of resistance
as desired or demanded by your specific application.
As a component for Light Steel Framing, magnesiacoreallows buildings to be taller, bigger and lighter faster than other board products
with more options in thickness for interior and exterior applications.
Can be left natural with clear sealers or finished as needed.
A faster and better alternative to lathing and plastering; magnesiacore can be installed with taped joints like a drywall, gyprock or plasterboard; or spliced using specific fillers without taping; or with
"T&G" tongue and grooved joints without any filling or taping... to save time for plaster tough walls at a fraction of the cost. A great substrate to receive
exterior and interior decorative
coatings directly to its surface.
can be screwed in place with wood screws and/or quickly and strongly fastened with
pneumatic guns using brads, staples or nails with less filling.
Most laminating adhesives work better on magnesiacore.
Excellent soundproofing qualities. Unique attractive economical seamless commercial grade acoustical flooring.
Can be installed floating over regular adhesives, or use our Acoustical Goo for
better isolated mass dampening of ambient
sound levels. Perfect for making flush seamless floor joints that
prevents dirt build-up and permits easy maintenance for machine polishing and waxing.
For a mezzanine assembly magnesiacore provides a non-combustible
cementatious slab over steel structures.
For incredibly fast dry wallboarding that can be installed and painted within hours using fast setting fillers trimmed with a sharp blade (reducing sandpaper and sanding). Fillers can be cut flush without a tape over the panel joints and without needing corner-bead, metal trims etc. while giving you perfectly true square corners and edges naturally. Panels can be spliced between studs without
landing joints over studs. i.e., using strips of magnesiacore behind the seam as a back-blocking splicer stapled or screwed together results in seamless flush joints on the front.
A concrete-hard dry wall material ideal for high impact areas, hot wet and humid areas; to receive paint directly or as a wall tile or floor tile backerboard. A backerboard that provides a 3000 PSI (20MpA) strong substrate for floor and wall tile, screwed or nailed in place without pre-drilling
or laminated in layers to obtain any thickness. When nailed in place with a
light brad nail gun a whole room can be made ready to tile in minutes. Every thickness from 6mm to 20mm can be nailed in place to wood studs, plywood subfloors, particleboards, OSB... even magnesiacore to magnesiacore
with pneumatically applied brads.

MAGNESIACORE IS: Non-combustible
class A building material - 3000PSI (20MpA) Breathable and porous for strong coating and adhesive bond Ideal for basements, garages, washrooms, wet areas and the
drywall for pool ceiling and wallboarding For ALL residential, commercial, industrial and institutional
construction Perfect for adding fireproofing to wood frame construction and elsewhere Excellent acoustic dampening material with higher density and elasticity Refractory material for infrared radiation (heat) assisting to reduce loss of energy when heating or cooling by reducing conductivity Non-hazardous, natural, non-toxic and disposable as crushable clean fill Environmentally friendly and produced without wasting large amounts of fossil fuel or releasing significant CO2 into the atmosphere in production Available in
chalk white and slate grey, custom colors and pre-cut sizes Stronger and more rigid to allow thinner material to do the same job Easier to work with using all types of hand tools and wood working equipment but also can be cut with a quick score and snap faster than drywall
Lighter than cement board; Smoother than drywall; More flexible than cement board; More rigid than drywall;
and more inert than cement board, drywall or wood based board materials.
Magnesiacore's ceramic-like properties
make it superior to cement board, calcium silicate boards, water resistant drywall, gyprock, gypsum board, plywood and particle board in diverse applications.
