Microboards - Ship building industry

Product Specification Sheet

MICROSHIELD®’s Microboard® is a FTP Code 2010 – Part 1 certified construction board for the building of interior fittings and other applications in shipbuilding. The Microboard® is lightweight and offers high mechanical strength including edge stability. The Microboard® can be processed with common commercially available machines and offers further advantages in versatile application possibilities.

Non-flammability and excellent acoustic insulation, as well as indoor and outdoor applicability, are just some of the features that meet our customer's versatile needs.

Microboard®s are easy to work with. Cutting, sawing, nailing, stapling, painting, direct veneering, etc. are just some of the advantages over standard products.

The picture below shows the new Microboard Nautic and its fantastic Part 1 results.
Microboard®s do not contain organic materials, formaldehyde, asbestos or other toxic substances.
They are environmentally neutral and without any influences for humans and the environment.

Construction boards from MICROSHIELD® require about 30% less energy in production than conventional, cement-bonded construction boards. This makes Microboard®s more ecological than other products and contributes to the global reduction of carbon dioxide.

Product Features:

MICROSHIELD®’s Microboard®s are classified as non-combustible-material  with FTP Code 2010 Part 1 certification.

Water resistant
Microboard®s are resistant to moisture and do not delaminate or deteriorate.

Weather resistant
Microboard®s withstand high and low temperatures, are not sensible to light and may be used in humid and dry weather conditions.

Sound insulatingMicroboard®s provide excellent sound insulation.

Heat insulating
Microboard®s achieve excellent heat insulation for personal and infrastructure safety.

Impact resistant
Microboard®s withstand heavy compression and are therefore the preferred choice for construction boards in the shipbuilding industry

Termite-proof and fungi-resistant
Microboard®s prevent from termite infestation and bacterial fungal growth.

Lightweight and durable
Althought MICROSHIELD®’s Microboard®s are lightweight, they are tough, sturdy and durable.

Microboard®s are dimensionally stable and do not deform.

Strong and nail-holding
Microboard®s are of high mechanical strength and hold nails and screws firmly. No pre-drilling is necessary.

Fabricating and laminating
Microboard®s can be easily assimilated / fabricated with honeycomb, veneers, laminates or vinyl coverings etc.

Free of harmful substances
Microboard®s are odorless and do not contain asbestos, crystalline silicon oxides, phenol and formaldehyde.
Microboard®s are breathable and support a healthy indoor climate.
