Boardex
Boardex

Description

BoardeX is an innovative, non-combustible exterior sheathing board with an a1 fire rating, suitable for exterior wall systems, ventilated façade systems, backer board applications under various claddings, and beneath ceramic tiling. Featuring a moisture-resistant core and a distinctive orange glass fibre mat, it provides enhanced durability and mold resistance, ideal for safe, long-lasting construction.

Key Advantages

Composition and Strength: BoardeX is a high-strength construction material, featuring a fibreglass mat coating and a fully integrated core for enhanced durability.

Mold and Bacteria Resistance: Its specially developed core effectively prevents the growth of bacteria, mold, or fungus, even under conditions of extreme temperature changes and moisture.

Fire Resistance: Classified as an A1 class non-combustible material, BoardeX’s fibreglass matting and special core components significantly enhance fire resistance when applied to walls.

Application Process: The application of BoardeX involves a primer coat of cement-based jointing compound and basecoat, followed by a mineral layer to prepare for painting.

Flexural Strength and Installation Flexibility: Offers uniform flexural strength in both directions, allowing for versatile horizontal or vertical installation.

Aesthetics and Functionality: BoardeX is not only aesthetically pleasing but also serves as a vital component in rainscreen systems and façade repair.

Weather-Resistant Installation: Suitable for application in various weather conditions, including extreme temperatures, and allows for uninterrupted interior construction work by protecting materials from weather exposure.

Load Bearing Support: It contributes to the strength of the load-bearing system to which it is affixed.

Handling and Stability: Lighter and more convenient to handle than wood-based or cement-based boards, BoardeX offers better dimensional stability against surface water absorption and moisture.

Workability and Insulation Performance: Easily cut with a utility knife, BoardeX enables the design of thermally insulated walls with low heat transmission, ensuring higher insulation efficiency.
