A better environmental alternative and upgrade to replace gypsum drywall and cement backer boards for walls, floors and countertops.
Why is GREENE-BOARD GREEN GREENE-BOARD is manufactured with patent pending proprietary process of natural mineral products including magnesium oxide and magnesium chloride. The manufacturing process for GREENE-BOARD consumes less than 50% of the energy required to make a Portland cement based product. When GREENE-BOARD is sized, excess material is saved and recycled into the future production runs. 100% of the post-industrial waste created during manufacture is recycled. GREENE-BOARD also contains a minimum of 5% post-consumer waste material. GREENE-BOARD has a natural resistance to the growth of mold and mildew, without the addition of toxic chemicals. GREENE-BOARD also contains no silica, no asbestos, no VOCs, so it is safe to install and safe for the end-user. Because of these features GREENE-BOARD contributes to USGBC LEED point for indoor air quality. GREENE-BOARD also contributes t0 USGBC LEED points for durability (lifespan) and recyclability. Because the primary components of GREENE-BOARD are all natural, it can be recycled as construction fill with no negative impact on the environment. GREENE-BOARD can also be recycled through a re- manufacturing process.
LEED ~ LEADERSHIP IN ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN A rating system developed by the US Green Building Council (USGBC) to assess the environmental sustainability of building designs. LEED is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. LEED certification is third-party validation of a buildings performance. LEED certified Projects blend environmental, economic, and occupant-oriented performance. They Cost less to operate and maintain; are energy-and water-efficient; have higher lease-up rates Than conventional building in their markets; are healthier and safer for occupants; and are a Physical demonstration of the values of the organizations that own and occupy them. Contributes 4 points to the LEED program. EQ – Indoor Air Quality EQ 3.2 – No VOCs MR 4.1 – 10% of Board is recycled back into production. MR 8 – Lifetime Durability
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY More than 50% lower energy usage during production in comparison to cement based products (HARDI BACKER) No hazardous chemicals or VOCs (volatile organic compounds) No Silicates (HARDI BACKER) Low Environmental Impact: LEED points for durability and indoor environmental quality Post Industrial Waste is fully recycled during production 100% recyclable. No extra costing for special disposal (HARDI BACKER)
EASY TO INSTALL Wallboards – Easy to finish when being used as a wall board. Install with smooth side out Score and Snap – Simple utility knife can be used Easy Fastening – Conventional fasteners can be used (screws/nails/staples) Tile Backer Board - Excellent adhesion with setting materials when being used as a tile backer. Install with smooth side down Will not crumble like cement and gypsum products
MOLD AND MILDEW RESISTANT Natural mold and mildew inhibitors – Because of its natural high ph levels mold/mildew cannot grow Fungus resistant properties under ASTM D-3273 and found no evidence of fungal growth. All samples had a rating of 10 (perfect score) Similar product manufacturers add chemicals to deter mold and mildew. (HARDI-BACKER, FIBEROCK AQUA TOUGH) WATER RESISTANT Impervious to Water – Liquid water or water vapor will not harm our product Will not rot, warp, delaminate or disintegrate when exposed to water Can be stored outside – Eliminating expensive storage fees
FREEZE THAW TOLERANCE IMPACT RESISTANT Excellent Resistance to damage from impact Highly resistant to termite and vermin attacks Low thermal conductivity TERMITE & VERMIN RESISTANT Resistant to freeze thaw and sulphate Can withstand wet / dry applications without breaking down THERMAL VALUE Transfers heat or cold slowly over time aiding in cutting back on the heat or cold loss through the wall
SOUND INSULATION FIRE PROOF NON COMBUSTIBLE – No Flame Spread Has a minimum 2 hour Fire Rating (1/2) to BS 476 Part 22 Designed for all fire wall applications Achieved rating for ASTM E90. (14% better sound rating than 5/8 drywall Melting point at /- 30 degrees Celsius Incorporates a main ingredient that is used as the primary material to line furnaces or refractory's in the steel industry ASTM E-119; ASTM E YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY Our GREEN E-BOARD is warranted to be free from defects in material: It will not swell, soften, decay or disintegrate in service; and will not delaminate as a result of exposure to moisture for the life of the product WE WILL MATCH ANY INDUSTRY WARRANTY FOR THE PRODUCTS WE SELL!
VS DensShield TILE BACKER Claims on Brochure & WebsiteDisclaimers & Notables GREENE-BOARD Grey heat cured acrylic coating helps protect the tile installation and wall cavity from moisture intrusion and damage Screws must be countersunk, therefore seal will automatically be compromised with every application Screws are easily countersunk and product is moisture resistant throughout. No paper skin Helps prevent mold growth in the wall cavity by blocking moisture Their claim to being MOLD RESISTANT is done by added chemical additives that may be harmful to your health Natural high PH levels in magnesia oxide make it impossible for mold or mildew to grow Easy to score and snap using standard utility knife NoneSame The only tile backer in the industry with a built in moisture barrier This product is gypsum with a moisture resistant paper coating which can be easily infiltrated during application There is nothing built in with GREENE-BOARD it is impervious to water due to its organic make up structure Lifetime Limited Warranty GREENE-BOARD has a Transferable Limited Warranty 1 hour fire rating (1/2)GREENE-BOARD has a 2 hour fire rating (1/2) Offers a comparison sheetCompares itself to Greenboard, the absolute lowest grade board of its kind Compares itself to Denshield/HardiBacker/Fiberock/Durock, currently the most established panels in the market today
VS HARDIBACKER Claims on Brochure & Website Disclaimers & Notables GREENE-BOARD EnvironmentMakes no claims in its brochure to being either Environmentally Friendly or being a Green product Recognized by the US Green Building Council Impervious to water damageAny claims to water/moisture or mildew resistance is due to chemical additives. HARDIBACKER can not withstand repeated wet dry applications – will eventually break down Can be stored outside. Can withstand freeze thaw temperature variations without any effect to the product Easy to install with no pre- drilling Panels are very heavy at 3 lbs psf. Claims that no pre-drilling is necessary, but in fact screws cannot be countersunk on their own. Previous users will attest that pre-drilling is a must with this product GREENE-BOARD at 2.2 lbs psf. No pre-drilling necessary, screws countersink nicely No special preparation needed Brochure clearly indicates that special drilling tools are needed for cutting. It also requires that you use protective safety equipment Can be scored and snapped with a standard utility knife 10 Year WarrantyLifetime Transferable Warranty (20 Years) Warning IssuedHARDIBACKER is required to issue warnings on the fact that their product contains Silica Dust which may cause bronchitis, silicosis (lung scarring) or cancer.
