A New Generation of Robust Designed Non-Combustible External and Internal Wall Lining
The Cellulose Magnesia Cement (CMC) board is an environmentally friendly nontoxic magnesium oxide composite and has strength and fire resistance due to the very strong bonds between the Magnesium (Mg) and Oxygen (O) atoms that form Magnesium Oxide (Chemical Symbol MgO)
Board Dimensions : 10 mm / 12 mm / 16 mm x 1200 mm x 2700 mm
* General Purpose : GP : Interior excluding wet area board : Colour White
* High Moisture Resistant : HMR : Exterior and Interior board) : Colour Green
* Pre-Sealed High Water Resistant: PS : Exterior, Interior and wet area board : Colour Grey

FRL - Fire Resistance Level
Fire Resistance Level (FRL) as defined in the Building Code of Australia (BCA) is the grading period in minutes for three criteria:
* Structural Adequacy * Integrity * Insulation.
- * Structural adequacy means the ability of a structure to maintain its stability and loadbearing capacity
- * Integrity means the ability of a structure to resist the passage of flames and hot gases
- * Insulation means the ability of a structure to maintain a temperature below specified limits on the surface not exposed to fire
Hence, a FRL requirement for a wall of 90/60/30 means that the wall must maintain structural adequacy for 90 minutes, integrity for 60 minutes and insulation for 30 minutes, as tested to AS 1530.4-1990:
“Methods for fire tests on building materials, components and structures – Fire-resistance tests of elements of building construction”

Prefabrication still the biggest driver for change
When it comes to current technologies, prefabricated systems are still considered the biggest driver of change, followed by building information modelling (BIM), computer-aided design (CAD) and drone technology.
44 per cent of respondents acknowledged that prefabrication presented the greatest potential for change.
Despite the positive sentiment towards prefabrication, regulators have recently suggested further regulation in ensuring the quality of the prefabricated building products.
"From a regulator’s point of view, we haven’t even really got set for it, so we’ll be putting a lot of time into that because at the moment, we only have visibility to what physically happens on the site,” New South Wales Building Commissioner David
