01 EXACOR Product Applications

One Board. Zero Hassle.

02 What Is MgO

Magnesium oxide (MgO) offers simple strength and streamlined installation for a building panel with exceptional workability.

MgO panels are cementitious panels that are primarily made of inorganic materials reinforced with layers of glass fiber mesh. EXACOR® MgO panels are manufactured to provide a streamlined solution for strength, fire resistance and sound performance.

  • Speed & Ease of Installation

    Installs with just a single trade and can eliminate the need for gypsum underlayment.

  • Sound Absorption

    Can help achieve sound ratings when used as a part of a STC/IIC-tested floor/ceiling assembly.

  • Fire Resistance

    Inherently fire resistant throughout and provides fire resistance as part of fire resistance–rated wall and floor/ceiling assemblies.

  • Durability

    Tough enough to handle jobsite conditions, withstands exposure to moisture and does not warp, expand, cup or delaminate like other wood panels do.

  • Inherent Strength

    Contains a proprietary layered mesh reinforcement for added structural value.

  • Quality Assurance

    Manufactured under a quality control program with inspections by ICC-ES and Underwriters Laboratory (UL) to ensure consistent product performance.

  • Optimize Material & Labor Costs

    High-performing material that may save time and help reduce materials and trades needed to install.
