ModakBoard has been tested to 1200°C with no combustion or flame out.
ModakBoard does not absorb water and so superheated steam will not "blow out" the product as it may do with standard building bricks in fire conditions.
ModakBoard is totally fire resistant. It will not burn in a fire storm. ModakBoard is applicable in BAL 12.5 to 40 and FZ flame zone regulation areas and meets the AS 3959 requirements, when used to protect exposed timber framing eaves joists etc., under AS/ NZ 3837 materials.
ModakBoard insulation properties help protect internal furnishing from internal combustion, flash burning from high external temperatures.
ModakBoard will not ignite from ember attacks. Ember attack is the largest single national contributor to home loss.
ModakBoard is 8 to 10 times stronger than normal plasterboard products and insulates from intense heat and cold.
ModakBoard does not break down in water so is ideal for flood prone areas.
ModakBoard is of no interest to insect pests and termites.
ModakBoard is a newly developed, extensively-tested modern building board used in construction. It is made from a mixture of magnesium oxide (MgO), non organic minerals, bonders and fibre mesh composites. ModakBoard is completely free of toxins, including formaldehyde, silica, asbestos, heavy metals, and organic solvents.
It’s non-toxic, naturally resistant to fire, water, and impact, and increases the R value in any panel application.
ModakBoard has extensive applications in construction for residential and commercial properties. It is also of particular interest to those renovating or repairing homes where either plasterboard gypsum style linings or other kinds of deteriorating high maintenance plasterboard cement derivative products have been used. These suffer from a variety of endemic problems, but have been the best the building industry could supply in Australia, until very recently.
