Magnum® Board is a mineral based green builder product, and it is homogenous – no de-lamination.

Magnum® Board Products can have a positive impact on your Family’s health and safety while extending the life of your investment.

Magnum® Board is THE NEW GENERATION BUILDING MATERIAL.

 

Applications

Magnum™ Sheathing 
For use over metal or wood framed exteriors, Magnum® Sheathing is easily installed using either manual or pneumatic (strongly recommended) tools. Magnum® Sheathing can be finished with many products including paint, stucco, non-cementitous applications, tile and siding. And like all Magnum® Board products, Magnum® Sheathing is virtually impervious to fire, water, insects; does not feed mold or mildew; is non-toxic; provides dimensional stability even when wet; and an exceptional bonding surface. No more worrying about shrinkage if installed wet or damp.

Magnum™ Soffit

For use over metal or wood framed exteriors, Magnum® Soffit is easily installed using either manual or pneumatic (strongly recommended) tools. Magnum® Soffit, like all Magnum® Board products is virtually impervious to fire, water, insects; does not feed mold or mildew; is non-toxic; provides dimensional stability even when wet; and an exceptional bonding surface. Got rain at the job site? No problem with Magnum® Soffit. It can be installed wet or dry without the worry of shrinkage as it dries.

Magnum™ Fascia
For use over metal or wood framed exteriors Magnum® Fascia is easily installed using either manual or pneumatic (strongly recommended) tools. Magnum® Fascia, like all Magnum® Board products is virtually impervious to fire, water, insects; does not feed mold or mildew; is non-toxic; provides dimensional stability even when wet; and an exceptional bonding surface. Got rain at the job site? No problem with Magnum® Fascia. It can be installed wet or dry without the worry of shrinkage as it dries.

Magnum™ Wallboard & Ceiling Board

For use over metal or wood framing, Magnum® Wallboard and Magnum® Ceiling Board is easily installed using either manual or pneumatic (strongly recommended) tools. Magnum® Wallboard and Magnum® Ceiling Board, like all Magnum® Board products are virtually impervious to fire, water, insects; do not feed mold or mildew; are non-toxic; provides dimensional stability even when wet; and an exceptional bonding surface. Because of their smooth and durable surfaces, a level 5 drywall finish can be achieved with little effort. Magnum Board finishes can include painting, interior stucco, brick, tile, wall paper and other finish applications.

Magnum™ Backer and Underlayment

For use over metal or wood framed walls and floors; and as an underlayment for counter and vanity tops. Magnum® Backer and Underlayment are excellent for use in wet or damp areas such as bathrooms, laundry rooms, kitchens, basements and pool areas because they are virtually impervious to fire, water and insects; will not feed mold or mildew; and are non toxic. They provide excellent dimensional stability, bonding surface capability and durability. Finishes can include such products as latex paints, wall paper and tiles of all types. For tile applications use only thinset mortor adhesives. Avoid using Type 1 or Type 2 organic mastic adhesives which are significantly inferior to thinset

Magnum™ Shaft-liner & Area Separation Wall Sheathing
For use over metal or wood framing, Magnum® Shaft-liner, like all Magnum® Board Products, is virtually impervious to fire, water, insects; does not feed mold or mildew; is non-toxic, non-flammable and non-combustible. Magnum® Shaft-liner and Area Separation Wall panels are ideal for use in moisture prone vertical and horizontal shaft wall assemblies, stairwell and area separation wall applications. Based on fire testing, approximately one-half of Magnum® Panel thicknesses are required to achieve fire ratings – reducing both schedule and labor costs.

Magnum® Board Installation Guidelines

Storage and Handling

Even though Magnum® Board is virtually impervious to most elements, provides exceptional durability and dimensionally stabile – even when wet - for best results we recommend that you:

  • Keep material dry prior to and during installation
  • Store flat on dunnage
  • Do not stack other materials on top of Magnum® Board
  • Protect the material from jobsite dirt, and
  • Protect edges from damage

Cutting

Work Station
  1. Position cutting station so that wind will blow dust away from user or others in working area and allow for ample dust dissipation.
  2. Use one of the following methods based on the required cutting rate and jobsite conditions.

Cutting Methods

Best

  • Score and snap using carbide-tipped scoring knife or utility knife (Ability to use this method depends on thickness of Magnum® Board being installed.)
  • Fiber-cement shears (electric or pneumatic).

Better

  • Dust reducing circular saw equipped with appropriate blade and HEPA vacuum extraction.

Good (for low to moderate cutting only)

  • Dust reducing circular saw with appropriate saw blade.

NOTES:
Always use correct tools when executing cutting operations.
Even though Magnum® Board is a non-toxic building material, ALWAYS wear a dusk mask, safety glasses and follow MSDS Guidelines.

NOTES:
1.Always follow Local, State and National Building Codes for fastening requirements.
2.If using metal, actual pressure required will depend on the gauge of metal and the diameter of pressure hose used.
3.Screw size will vary depending on actual thickness of materials and type of materials used.

Clean-up

During clean-up, dust and debris, NEVER dry sweep as it may excite dust particles into the user’s breathing area. Instead, wet debris down with a fine mist to suppress dust during sweeping, or use a HEPA vacuum to collect particles.

NOTES:
1.For maximum protection (lowest respirable dust production), Magnum® Building Products recommends always using “Best” level cutting methods where feasible.
2.Never use a power saw indoors.
3.Never use a circular saw blade that is inappropriate for the specific operation being undertaken.
4.Never dry sweep - use wet suppression methods or HEPA vacuum.
5.Never use a grinder or continuous rim diamond blade for cutting.

Safety

  1. For maximum protection (lowest respirable dust production), Magnum® Building Products recommends always using “Best” level cutting methods where feasible.
  2. We do not recommend use of a power saw indoors.
  3. Never use a circular saw blade that is inappropriate for the specific operation being executed.
  4. Never dry sweep. Use wet suppression methods or HEPA vacuum.
  5. Never use a grinder or continuous rim diamond blade for cutting.
  6. Even though Magnum® Board is a non-toxic building material, ALWAYS wear a dusk mask, safety glasses and follow MSDS Guidelines when working with Magnum® Board.
  7. ALWAYS follow local, state and national building codes where applicable.
