MagRoc

MagRoc™ is a magnesium oxide (MgO) based sheathing board made from proprietary recipes in our Joint Venture manufacturing plant in China. MgO based board products have been used in China for decades as construction sheathing in every conceivable application. Quze Inc.( pronounced "Q") and our JV partners have thru several rounds of research and development and years of in the field application experience taken this technology to its current state of the art evolution ....MagRoc™.

              

MagRoc™ is highly fire, water, impact, mold and fungus resistant. Through careful trial and error the design recipes have been balanced to also make our board the most pliable and fastener friendly MgO board product on the market. We are further combining the inherent MgO durability and calculated pliabilty with state of the art quality control.

MagRoc™ will now be produced on a cutting edge fully automated manufacturing line as of Januaray 2013. This one of a kind new machinery outperforms the conventional manually operated pour and trowel systems in every way. It removes the traditional human error inconsistencies found throughout the MgO board market as well as increasing production, decreasing waste and cutting costs. Consistent, dependable and world class quality control is the result.

MagRoc™ is the first MgO sheathing to come with both the traditional square and now a high quality preformed tapered edge. This as with conventional gypsum drywall board tapered or bevelled edges allow for greater ease of finishing and reduces butt joint cracking to virtually zero. Other MgO boards provide after cure, routered tapers which reduce the quality and strength of the board at is most critical attachment point. This is of particular importance if there is a structural component to the board performance as in its use as a Structural Insulated Panel Systems (SIPS). (See MagRoc™ SIPS under "Products" link.

MagRoc™ has successfully tested its 12mm/1/2" thick standard sheathing to ASTM, ICC and AS/NZ standards for use as construction sheathing and in SIPS applications. It is available in 1220x2440mm (4'x8'), 1220x2745mm (4'x9') and 1220x2440mm (4'x10') standard sizes. Quze Inc/MagRoc are scheduled to test 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 15mm, 19mm and 25mm thicknesses for various construction applications in early 2013. These are currently available for use in non structural/ non rated sheathing applications.
