Trend in Construction Design during and after the Pandemic

The impact of Covid 19 to our daily lives and surroundings will long affect each and everyone of us and decisions that we will make from now on. As the saying goes “ Prevention is better than the Cure “. The construction market and trends in choosing the materials use in our walls, ceilings, buildings and houses are more important now more than ever. For too long we have lived, worked, played, stayed in environments built to minimum considerations to safety, human health and environmental impact. It’s time for a change.

TRILITE RMS board – a new age, fire & water resistant, noncombustible, multi-purpose board that is virtually impervious and keeps out insects, termites, rodent infestation. Our boards does not feed molds and mildew, is non-toxic, non-flammable and noncombustible. It is seldom we find such advantages in a single building board compare to traditional materials . These qualities are most relevant now in keeping us safe, healthy and comfortable in the air we breathe.

TRILITE RMS boards – produce from inert natural minerals mainly magnesium oxide powder, magnesium as we know is also use as a supplemental vitamin . It is also a major ingredient in antacids and laxatives. The benefits when taken orally is numerous, the same way as a major raw material in our boards, there is surely no harm to human health.

During the pandemic times, cleaning and sanitizing is very important to keep virus and germs out. Choosing a board that does not deteriorate when expose to water from spraying disinfectants is important too. If constantly expose to moisture , wood based boards may disintegrate, constant moist may harbor insects, rodents, etc… that is not what we want to happen.

TRILITE RMS boards – tested in Finland and classified as “ M1” – the safest indoor climate environment building product ranking. 100% free from carcinogens, ammonia, asbestos, formaldehyde, TVOC, VOC. Non-hazardous and sensory evaluated.

We have a choice, we hope that our numerous advantages will not be dismiss. T he decision to choose TRILITE RMS boards now is a long term investment to the health and safety of our lives, our loved ones and the people around us

Embrace MgO for flooring of Container Homes

With the idea to save time, labor , overall cost, on-site delays due to unpredictable weather conditions, the idea to pre-built at factories and just deliver on site had been an increasing importance and trend in the construction industry. Our MgO based high strength TRILITE RMS flooring is one of the choice material to use over plywood, cement board, strand board or particle board due to its :

Water resistance
Mold, Termite & Insect Proof

TRILITE RMS vs Magnesium Oxide (MgO) Boards.

Recently, there was a study titled “Magnesium Oxide (MgO) Boards Cause Moisture Damage Inside Facades In New Danish Buildings” written by Kurt Kiel Overgaard Hansen, Tommy Bunch-Nielsen, Bent and Carsten Grelk Red. These authors were working for the Dept. of Civil Engineering, Technical University of Denmark and the Bunch Building Institute. The study was about the application of Magnesium boards in ventilated facades or what we call the “windboard”.

The Denmark problem described an “Magnesium board with MgCl2” showed signs of significant moisture, leaking salty water (or what we call ‘tears’), corrosion of fittings & anchors, and mould growth. The damages were caused by the fact that Magnesium boards absorb moisture from outside air during periods with high outdoor humidity (90-100% Rh) and form water droplets on the surface of the board. The droplets contain high amountS of soluble Chloride ions and appear on the surface of the boards and consequently caused corrosion of the metal parts. The exact composition of the board is not known and the company who supplied the boards was also not identified and which quality control system was used in order to guarantee the performance.

Chemical composition of the board is very important. You can find many cheap bargains from Chinese producers of MgO boards who sell them at very low prices due to lower grade and cheaper alternatives in their composition and recipe. A very common filling material for Magnesium boards are sawdust and wood fibres which are relatively cheap to source. A producer can create more profit margin and low purchase prices if they increase the amount of the wood fibre or if they use lower grade Magnesium powder as substitutes or if they use cheaper quality fibre mesh, etc…

The result is that the buyer get the product that they have paid for. When it’s a company’s reputation that’s on the line, why settle for cheap products? Especially if in the end they’d be spending more when they have to have defective boards replaced and at a loss. Choosing the right product, the right manufacturer and at the right price, would really save them more money in the long run.

TRILITE RMS has CE marking certification, we never mess with our recipe/ composition. It is the life of our company. Quality control checks on incoming batches of raw materials, at the right proportion of each raw material and method of manufacturing is very important to us.

State of Magnesium Oxide (MgO) Producers Today

Since the start of 2017, news of bankruptcy filing from many Magnesium oxide (MgO) manufacturers have spread. It made a big wave in the market. For the future development of Magnesium Oxide industry, insiders have put forward large-scale discussions.

Under multiple influences of domestic excess production capacity, market demand fatigue and increasing trade frictions, Chinese Magnesium Oxide manufacturers were facing a trend in bankruptcies.

So how is the state of Magnesium Oxide industry faring now?

As a matter of fact, looking back at 2016, domestic bankruptcy and conformity of Magnesium Oxide (MgO) Industry had already simmered behind the scenes.

Last year, some indebted enterprises declared bankruptcy. It caused endless speculation for the Magnesium Oxide industry prospect. Most industry insiders were generally of the view that showed the development track of magnesium oxide industry would be the merger and acquisition of superior Magnesium Oxide manufacturers, and alliances between giants.

Previously, foreign capital effectively utilized the domestic low-cost labor combined with advanced management model and powerful technical support.
