MgO Wall Vs Other Drywalls: Which Option Should You Choose?



The trend of using Magnesium Oxide isn’t really new in Asian and Middle Eastern countries. The reason is fairly simple; most Magnesium Oxide deposits are available in the Asian region. Most construction companies choose MgO walls due to the extensive range of benefits that it offers. But how does it compete against other drywalls? Let’s find out!


Functionality


MgO walls


MgO walls offer a multitude of advantages, mainly due to the usage of Magnesium Oxide. Firstly, it’s a fire-resistant material that offers better protection to people inside the space, in case an event of a fire.


Secondly, it has waterproof properties which means it doesn’t deteriorate due to moisture or water. Thirdly, it’s very durable and sturdy, which allows the wall to withstand harsh weather conditions.


Moreover, the impact-resistant properties of MgO can be instrumental in the case of natural calamities such as tornado and earthquakes. In addition to that, this material is antimicrobial; they do not harbor mold, mildew, or termites.


Gypsum Walls


Gypsum boards react poorly to water and start deteriorating over time if come in contact with water or in the presence of moisture. Furthermore, walls made from gypsum, particularly synthetic gypsum, are toxic and can result in bad air quality.




Gypsum walls are also not an eco-friendly choice as the toxic material go to landfill rather than getting recycled. The effects of landfill can be devastating as it harms the environment in various forms, including air pollution, groundwater pollution, and more.

Gypsum Walls


Gypsum walls don’t stand a chance against MgO walls in terms of design. These walls do not offer an extensive range of colors or texture. However, you can always add a fresh coat of paint to improve the aesthetics of your walls. But again, it won’t be the same.
