Principal Attributes of Enviroboards Fireboards
Eco and Environmentally friendly
Enviroboards Fire Boards are environmentally friendly as they are non toxic, odourless and do not create secondary pollution.
Unlike gypsum based boards that produce greenhouse gasses in their production, enviroboards are naturally dried and cured eliminating the power intensive drying process needed for gypsum products
They are resistant to acid, alkali, bleaching agents, chlorine solution and solvent in addition to most other chemicals.
Thermal and sound Insulation
They possess excellent thermal and sound insulation qualities with thermal conductivity recorded as low as 0.13534 W/mK
They are lightweight and strong with a normal dry density of 0.8g/cm3
They are non-combustible and offer a high fire rating the boards can be used for lining any fire–rated partition, ceiling or enclosure/boxing system.
Fungus and pest resistant
The boards resist the attack from termites and all other insects and vermin, they do not promote, propagate or nourish the growth of bacteria or fungus and are well suited to be used in a humid environment.
Water resistance and hygroscopic properties
The boards are inert to water and have high water resistant properties; they do not exhibit any hygroscopic properties and are therefore not affected if installed in a humid environment.
Application and installation
The surface possess strong binding properties for all kinds of acrylics, emulsion paint, adhesive and other binding agents for wall paper, laminates, fabrics, tiles veneer and other synthetic surfacing materials without the need for further preparation. The boards act well as a substrate or decorative panel, they are able to be cut, drilled or sanded using conventional tools and are not brittle and therefore nailing or screwing particularly near the edges does not require pre-drilling. The board’s flat surface ensures ease of application.
Durability bending and tensile strength
The boards are stronger than most conventional panel boards on the market, they do not deform when stressed and are designed and engineered to provide tensile and bending strength, they are resistant to the absorption of water vapour and will not shrink, swell, warp or distort even under extreme temperature and high humidity.
Internal partitions and wall linings. When used as drywall partitions the boards are ideal for use in commercial, industrial residential hospital and public buildings. The good thermal and sound features create a comfortable living environment the smooth surface offers an attractive finish even when not decorated and they easily receive conventionally applied finishes such as paint, tiles, plaster, wallpaper veneers and laminates.
The board’s resistance to dampness make them ideal for use in damp or humid areas such as bathrooms, kitchens or semi or fully exposed areas.
They are excellent as wall linings as they are lightweight and easy to work with and can be sawn, screwed nailed and secures to framework of any shape or size without difficulty.
Soffits, roofs, eaves and gables
The maintenance free qualities of the boards make them ideal linings for difficult to access areas with dimensional stability they prevent sagging, warping and swelling even in damp conditions. Undecorated boards will not degrade, rot or deteriorate physically.
