Polyboards are highly versatile, lightweight products that provide 100% waterproofing and thermal insulation, providing energy savings and reducing carbon footprints. Polyboards are suitable for use in wet areas of construction projects with no waterproof membrane required and as balcony substrate/floorings, they can be tiled without further preparation.
Polyboard Construction Board by Polyboards Australia is a hard polyurethane board, designed for use in the building and construction industry and has multiple potential applications. The boards are a cost-effective, lightweight, waterproofing alternative to plywoods, timber or other panel boards. The panels are joined with tongue and groove configurations and a polyurethane-based waterproof sealant is applied (SMX30 Plus). The product uses a non-halogenated blowing material and no halogenated fire retardants are used.
The boards can be used in wet rooms, underfloor board systems, cabinets, benchtops, weatherboards when painted, cladding and mouldings and for skirting applications. The product has also been used in building single dwelling refugee housing.
