MagTech™ Fire Retardant PlywoodOne of the easiest and most essential ways to protect a building from fire damage is through the use of fire retardant materials. MagTech™ fire retardant plywood is the contractor’s plywood of choice and revolutionizes the way it is treated by forgoing chemical treatments and the usual vacuum pressure process for an environmentally friendly magnesium oxide application. It not only improves performance, but also is non-toxic and resistant to both moisture and mold.
How is MagTech Fire Retardant Plywood Made?MagTech plywood is created by applying a thin layer of magnesium oxide via high pressure lamination. Magnesium oxide has a high resistance to heat, which helps prevent the plywood from catching fire and dramatically slows the burning process.
Outstanding PerformanceMagTech fire retardant plywood has an ASTM E-84 Class A status with a flame spread of 0 and a smoke development of 0, increasing the standards of fire retardant plywood. Its excellent flame and smoke rating make it a valuable and affordable solution for contractors looking for an easier way to adhere to rigorous building codes and provide superior quality. In addition to outstanding durability and performance, MagTech plywood can also be used as exterior sheathing in certain applications requiring a 2-hour rating. This is according to ASTM E-119 standards, which many fire retardant alternatives are not able to meet, making MagTech plywood is the obvious choice for durable and lasting building applications that are responsibly built.
