How to Use and Specify Magnesium Oxide Board, with Steve Marskell from Rescom [Part 2 of 3 Episodes]

View descriptionShare

Hello! This is Episode 278, and in it, I’m continuing my conversation with Steve Marskell from Rescom Building Products.

[For all resources mentioned in this podcast and a free, downloadable PDF transcript, head to]

Rescom Building Products was founded in 2009, and today produces the world’s #1 ISO:8336 Certified High Performance Magnesia Cement Building Products.

If you haven’t listened to Part 1 of my conversation with Steve, head back to Episode 277, where you’ll hear more about the benefits of Magnesium Oxide board, and what Steve and Rescom have done to develop the product since 2009 with their extensive testing and product development.

In this episode, Steve and I will talk specifically about the applications of Magnesium Oxide board: where it can be used, how to use it, and what to consider in your specification of it.

Magnesium Oxide Board is one of those products that keeps cropping up for me. And, in my research, I’ve definitely found that Magnesium Oxide Board products are not all equal, and it can be difficult to cut through all the information that’s online. 

But when you do, it’s definitely a material worth reviewing, as its benefits are huge, and there’s lots of examples of it being used successfully around the world in a variety of different projects.

For this episode, I’ll share in the resources a series of videos that Steve sent through to me. They’re on the Youtube channel called Maxkil that shares, amongst other things, information about products, techniques and working with board products, especially plasterboard. The videos are a series of clips from an unexpected visit they paid to the Rescom location, and will show you the products Steve discusses in this episode. 

In my conversation with Steve in this episode, you’ll hear me refer to these videos, and a particular installation in Rescom’s facility that shows the natural finish of Rescom’s board. It’s got a beautiful green lustre to it, that I can see working exactly as it’s been installed, as finished cladding to a home. You’ll find that in Video 4 of the clips I’m sharing in the resources.
