MAGNELiTE U.S.A is a result of American Building Technologies Inc's continued endeavor to offer quality products to the building industry. MAGNELiTE U.S.A Magnesium Silicate Boards is a Non-Combustible BS 476 - Part 4 Class 1 certified building board capable of providing up to 3 hours of fire rating. It is an all-weather, high strength, non-combustible, fire resistant board for interior and exterior applications. MAGNELiTE U.S.A has 100% asbestos free composition manufactured from a matrix of inorganic materials like natural silicates, CaCO3, MgO and reinforced with glass fiber. The innovative manufacturing technology of multiple glass fiber reinforcements provides the board with exceptional flexibility and strength. MAGNELiTE U.S.A is also available in special finishes of stone, brick and natural veneer laminates.

"Come fire, Come moisture, Come heat, Come termites, MAGNELiTE U.S.A fights it all and is a one solution building board."
