Magnesium Oxide Board Corporation P/L (MgO Corp) is a family owned and operated business based on the Sunshine Coast with distribution globally which was established in July 2011. After 2 years of investigating the potential to develop a high level professional skill-based organisation that is 100% committed and focused on the evolution of a high performance core-based suite of eco environmentally sustainable building products unique to the magnesium oxide board sheathings industry.
MgO Corps entry into the building and construction materials market place was taken early when MgO Corp became the first company in Australia and New Zealand to achieve government legislated approval for the complete range of MgO Corp Board ResCom® building products under CodeMark Conformity Approval.
Achieving the highest level of government approval was a strategic and essential part of MgO Corps tactical entry into the dominated markets of FC and Plasterboard sheeting products.
The independent auditing and investigation process of CodeMark is without comparison within the building and construction industry and leaves no stone unturned.
All aspects of your business operations including manufacturing and test data are forensically investigated and confirmed prior to being issued a Certificate of Conformity as being compliant for use under the relevant building codes.
It was our understanding of the industry stories and propaganda that surrounded the original magnesium oxide board companies that drove MgO Corp to open its books and be 100% transparent to independent authorities as required under the CodeMark Scheme Rules and strive for certification.
This was needed so as to allow MgO Corp to start our journey with our customers with the confidence that our overall operations had been thoroughly investigated and passed.
Today MgO Corps ResCom® Building products are an exclusively new patented and innovative material that is revolutionizing residential and commercial building sectors around the world with award winning projects completed in Australia, New Zealand and America and thousands of projects finished throughout over twenty countries.
ResCom® products can be used in multiple applications effectively around your home or business removing the need for multiple layers of traditional products.
A key component of ResCom® boards is the use of high grade Magnesite which is known to be a very reliable and healthy material. This makes ResCom® products an excellent product for use in multiple building uses.
ResCom® products have been extensively tested and registered in America to have EQ Credit: Low-Emitting Materials Compliance under California Department of Health (CDPH) Standards Method v1.1-2010 using private office exposure scenario TVOC concentration level of Listed online at www.hpd-collaborative.org
The major features of Magnesium Oxide are fire resistance, moisture resistance, mold and mildew resistance, and strength. Magnesium Oxide is a refractory material, which means it is physically and chemically stable at elevated temperatures.
This gives our boards freeze/thaw stability. This provides the fire resistance in our boards. There is no organic material in our boards. This makes them mold, fungus, and insect proof.
The properties of our proprietary patented formulation and compounds, along with the proper curing process attributes to the strength and performances of ResCom® products that well exceed that of the traditional FC, Drywall, OSB and Flat Sheet products.
We hope for your next projects you allow us the time to discuss with you the amazing benefits that come with the correct design specification and use of MgO Corps high performance engineered ResCom Building products.
Remember: Not All MgO Products Are The Same. Only Specify and Use Independently Tested and Certified Compliant Products at All Times.
