Magnesium Oxychloride Cement Product

04/20/2017 3:38 AM

Hi Experts,

Wish to understand the Precast wall (hollow core) with magnesium oxychloride cement and fibre.

Understand it can induce sweating/dampness on bare surface. Have you encountered this problem. If yes, what are the remedial options to make good.

thank you so much.

Noel

That link leads to an article that is clearly a translation, I suspect from Chinese, and definitely contains some errors.

The most glaring one I saw was:

(7) Good thermal insulation
The thermal conductivity of Magnesium oxychloride cement is high."

A LOW thermal conductivity is required for good thermal insulation.

Seems to be a highly inferior product for that (or nearly any other application other than in the Gobi desert).
