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.
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.
Non-combustible 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.
Non-deforming 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.
