MagTech™ Fire Retardant OSB Sheathing is a patent-pending, code compliant, Class-A Rated, fire retardant wood panel system that is both durable and easy to handle on the job site. MagTech™ structural sheathing can be used in fire-rated wall applications, as well as for fire retardant structural sheathing on exterior and interior walls, pitched roofs, flat deck roofs, and floors. MagTech™ offers superior performance with both increased fire resistance and improved structural capability in a single panel.

MagTech™ consists of a 3 mil thick, non-combustible, fiber-reinforced magnesium oxide (MgO) board laminated to untreated OSB or plywood (one or two faces) as required by code and building application. The non-combustible MgO board lamination process assures a composite uniform section to reinforce the OSB while also serving to provide both flame and thermal resistance.

MagTech™ offers increased structural capacity. In contrast to other fire retardant sheathing products that are chemically-impregnated or coated, MagTech™ is created using a proprietary lamination process that bonds reinforced MgO board to the exterior face of the OSB structural sheathing. The noncombustible MgO laminate prevents both flame and smoke penetration through the sheathing, as well as enables the OSB to remain free of fire retardant chemicals for greater strength of the overall composite sheathing system.

MagTech™ is free of hazardous chemicals, with no VOC (off-gas) present during fabrication. The MgO panel face provides an attractive tile-like surface that mitigates the spread of flame and heat with a burn-through resistance that is greater than that of standard wood structural panels that are treated with fire retardant chemicals.

Applications for Use:

MagTech™ is a versatile sheathing product. MagTech™ has been structurally analyzed and is capable to work as sheathing for both internal and external load bearing and non-load bearing applications of wall, floor and roof framing. Load tables were developed through a series of load tests that were performed by a licensed structural engineering firm.
