uPgrade your drywall and more!
The economically viable alternative to drywall and plasterboard.
Magnesiacore™, a unique and durable construction panel, offers revolutionary solutions for your diverse construction needs. Using magnesia cement, we create a versatile, cementitious board material that is non-combustible, hard, paperless, and more inert than traditional panels made from gypsum, cement, clay, wood, or paper.
Magnesiacore™ panels offer superior qualities that make for easier, faster, and longer-lasting indoor and outdoor construction.

For an environmentally friendly, salt-, fire-, moisture-, heat-, and mold-resistant construction board that insects and rodents can't feed on, and a higher impact-proof, sound-attenuating material, use:
9mm (~3/8") Magnesiacore instead of 5/8" (~16mm) gypsum drywall
9mm (~3/8") Magnesiacore instead of 1/2" (~12mm) cement board
12mm (~1/2") Magnesiacore instead of 5/8" (~16mm) particleboard
Magnesiacore systems result in state-of-the-art walls, decks, and roofs ideal for construction environments from the tropical to the tundra.
Benefits & Advantages
Whether you are building a natatorium, redoing your indoor swimming pool drywall or ceiling tile, wainscoting parts of your home or spa, or just repaneling your basement or garage walls, Magnesiacore technology can help with a better, faster, and easier DIY job.
A superior non-combustible construction board material, with numerous home and commercial project applications.
Experience a revolutionary improvement in your construction projects with Magnesiacore technology. Our innovative material offers a needed alternative to traditional gypsum drywall and cement board, providing a hard, long-lasting surface that looks and feels like hard cement plastering. Unlike its counterparts, Magnesiacore is fireproof and resistant to damage from water, humidity, freezing, organisms, chlorine, salt, and more. Perfect for indoor and outdoor applications, Magnesiacore is the ideal wallboard for pool buildings, garages, kitchens, wet rooms, and other high-demand areas.
Magnesiacore™ board in sheet panels can be applied to wood structures, metal framing, steel structures, and masonry work using a variety of mechanical fasteners, including screws, bolts, rivets, brads, staples, and nails. It can also be easily laminated over existing surfaces using adhesives and cements. Our board panels allow you to customize your project to specific needs and preferences using a variety of joint fillers for different levels of resistance. Whether you're looking for a durable and long-lasting surface, or a versatile and adaptable construction solution, look no further than Magnesiacore panels.
As a component for Light Steel Framing, Magnesiacore™ technology allows for taller, bigger, and lighter buildings, with faster construction times and more options in thickness for both interior and exterior applications. Our board material is the ideal solution for construction needs both residential and commerical. Its unique properties can be left natural or with clear sealers or finishes, as needed, giving you the flexibility to customize your building's appearance to your desired look and specifications.
A faster and better alternative to lathing and plastering: Magnesiacore can be installed with taped joints like drywall, gyprock, or plasterboard; spliced using specific fillers without taping; or connected with "T&G" tongue and grooved joints without any filling or taping, resulting in plaster-tough walls at a fraction of the time and cost. A great substrate to receive exterior and interior decorative coatings directly to its surface.
Magnesiacore 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. Moreover, Magnesiacore's excellent soundproofing qualities result in unique, attractive, economical, seamless commercial grade acoustical flooring. It can be installed floating over regular adhesives, or using 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 cementitious 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 sanding). Fillers can be cut flush without a tape over the panel joints and without needing corner-bead, metal trims, etc., while giving you naturally true square corners and edges. Panels can be spliced between studs without landing joints over studs. 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, hot, wet, and humid areas, and ready 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.
