A better environmental alternative and upgrade to replace gypsum drywall and cement backer boards for walls, floors and countertops.
Why is GREENE-BOARD “GREEN” GREENE-BOARD™ is manufactured with patent pending proprietary process of natural mineral products including magnesium oxide and magnesium chloride. The manufacturing process for GREENE-BOARD™consumes less than 50% of the energy required to make a Portland cement based product. When GREENE-BOARD™ is sized, excess material is saved and recycled into the future production runs. 100% of the post-industrial waste created during manufacture is recycled. GREENE-BOARD™also contains a minimum of 5% post-consumer waste material. GREENE-BOARD™has a natural resistance to the growth of mold and mildew, without the addition of toxic chemicals. GREENE-BOARD™also contains no silica, no asbestos, no VOCs, so it is safe to install and safe for the end-user. Because of these features GREENE-BOARD™contributes to USGBC LEED point for indoor air quality. GREENE-BOARD™also contributes t0 USGBC LEED points for durability (lifespan) and recyclability. Because the primary components of GREENE-BOARD™are all natural, it can be recycled as construction fill with no negative impact on the environment. GREENE-BOARD™can also be recycled through a re-manufacturing process.
LEED ~ LEADERSHIP IN ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN A rating system developed by the US Green Building Council (USGBC) to assess the environmental sustainability of building designs. LEED is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. LEED certification is third-party validation of a building’s performance. LEED certified Projects blend environmental, economic, and occupant-oriented performance. They Cost less to operate and maintain; are energy-and water-efficient; have higher lease-up rates Than conventional building in their markets; are healthier and safer for occupants; and are a Physical demonstration of the values of the organizations that own and occupy them. Contributes 4 points to the LEED program. EQ – Indoor Air Quality EQ 3.2 – No VOC’s MR 4.1 – 10% of Board is recycled back into production. MR 8 – Lifetime Durability
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY More than 50% lower energy usage during production in comparison to cement based products (HARDI BACKER) No hazardous chemicals or VOC’s (volatile organic compound’s) No Silicates (HARDI BACKER) Low Environmental Impact: LEED points for durability and indoor environmental quality Post Industrial Waste is fully recycled during production 100% recyclable. No extra costing for “special disposal” (HARDI BACKER)
EASY TO INSTALL Score and Snap – Simple utility knife can be used Easy Fastening – Conventional fasteners can be used (screws/nails/staples) Will not crumble like cement and gypsum products Tile Backer Board - Excellent adhesion with setting materials when being used as a tile backer. Install with smooth side down Wallboards – Easy to finish when being used as a wall board. Install with smooth side out
MOLD AND MILDEW RESISTANT Natural mold and mildew inhibitors – Because of it’s natural high ph levels mold/mildew cannot grow Fungus resistant properties under ASTM D-3273 and found no evidence of fungal growth. All samples had a rating of 10 (perfect score) Similar product manufacturers add chemicals to deter mold and mildew. (HARDI-BACKER, FIBEROCK AQUA TOUGH) WATER RESISTANT Impervious to Water – Liquid water or water vapor will not harm our product Will not rot, warp, delaminate or disintegrate when exposed to water Can be stored outside – Eliminating expensive storage fees
FREEZE THAW TOLERANCE Resistant to freeze thaw and sulphate Can withstand wet / dry applications without breaking down IMPACT RESISTANT Excellent Resistance to damage from impact TERMITE & VERMIN RESISTANT Highly resistant to termite and vermin attacks THERMAL VALUE Low thermal conductivity Transfers heat or cold slowly over time aiding in cutting back on the heat or cold loss through the wall
SOUND INSULATION Achieved rating for ASTM E90. (14% better sound rating than 5/8 drywall FIRE PROOF NON COMBUSTIBLE – No Flame Spread Has a minimum 2 hour Fire Rating (1/2”) to BS 476 Part 22 Designed for all fire wall applications Melting point at 2827 +/- 30 degrees Celsius Incorporates a main ingredient that is used as the primary material to line furnaces or refractory's in the steel industry ASTM E-119; ASTM E-84 20 YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY Our GREEN E-BOARD™ is warranted to be free from defects in material: It will not swell, soften, decay or disintegrate in service; and will not delaminate as a result of exposure to moisture for the life of the product WE WILL MATCH ANY INDUSTRY WARRANTY FOR THE PRODUCTS WE SELL!
