Construction, Materials, Finishes
Magnesium plate is manufactured from a combination of magnesium oxide and magnesium chloride and includes fibrous reinforcement.
Magnesium plate is light tan to cream in color. Standard production material is very smooth on one side and sand textured on the other.
Magnesium plate accepts any type of paint, wallpaper and tiling. Standard edges are square or tapered. Special edges and sizes are available.
Magnesium plate may be cut, trimmed or shaped using ordinary power or hand tools. Every Magnesium plate product is clearly labeled with the red dragon logo and pertinent UL design numbers to eliminate confusion in the field.
Magnesium plate is approved for 1-, 1 1/2-, 2-, 3- and 4-hour fire resistant wall systems, providing an unprecedented degree of safety and security.
Offering superior fire protection, Magnesium plate requires only a single layer, which expedites job completion, saving time and money.
Magnesium plate has flamespread and smoke propagation ratings of 0 per ASTM E84. STC ratings of 53 on a 2-hour UL assembly and 54 on a 3-hour UL assembly are available. A Dade County hurricane qualified system is also available.
