Magnesium Oxide board, also known as MGO, is a type of sheathing board, similar to gypsum and cement fibre board.
MGO is a superior product to gypsum and cement fibre board because it is fire and heat resistant, weather resistant, resistant to mould and mildew, flexible, sound absorbing, paintable and toxin free.
Because of it’s versatility and numerous advantageous characteristics, Lotex Magboard is not only used extensively in the building and constuction industry but can also be used in sound studios, schools, movie theatres, shopping centres as well as boat, bus and train partitioning.
MGO board can absorb moisture, but it’s performance and integrity is not affected, so it can be used indoors or outdoors and in damp locations such as bathrooms, etc.

LOTEX MAGBOARD CHARACTERISTICS
MOISTURE RESISTANCELotex Magboards retain their dimensional stability and integrity in damp and humid conditions and can therefore be installed and used at the early stage of any construction project.
FIRE PERFORMANCELotex Magboard is non combustible and can be used in any area or application where a fire resistant function is required.
BIOLOGICAL AND CHEMICAL RESISTANCELotex Magboard is resistant to rodent and insect attack as well as mould growth and most chemicals.
ELECTROMAGNETIC WAVES PREVENTION & ANTISTATICLotex Magboard is suitable for applications where electromagnetic wave interception and static electricity prevention is required – operating theatres, X-ray facilites, laboratories, electronic component assembly or any area requiring the reduction of electromagnetic waves and antistatic environments.
SOUND ABSORPTIONLotex Magboard has excellent sound absorbtion capabilities – a wall constructed with 4 layers of 12mm Magboard has the same soundproof effect as a 150mm solid brick wall.
