MEGABOARD Testing & Technical

Testing

ReGen Building Solutions takes its responsibilities for supplying products extremely seriously. To ensure we supply products that are Fit for Purpose, we have and continue to invest in testing to ensure the products we supply direct or third party products we supply as part of our systems meet our quality requirements.

ReGen Building Solutions has worked with manufacturers, suppliers, NATA testing labs, universities and associations to develop a range of tests for the products we supply to our end-user customer. All recommended 3rd party products have been tested by the suppliers to ensure the products perform and interact appropriately with MEGABOARD to ensure long term durability.

Our 3rd party suppliers include:

3M – Glues, sealants and tapes

Valspar – Granosite render, internal/external paints and sealants

Astec – Renders and paint

SteedForm – Lamination

Our Testing partners include:

Ian Berry and Associates NATA approved – Waterproofing and wind loads

Laminex – Bend strength NATA approved

Ignis Fire Solutions – BAL Rating/non-combustibility

University of South Australia – Bend tests

AWTA – Thermal Resistance NATA approved

SLR – Acoustics

MEGABOARD Testing

MEGABOARD goes through independent testing incorporating 16 separate tests before boards are accepted for cladding internal or external applications. The tests for the boards are outlined in the below table and must pass prior to being accepted by ReGen Building Solutions.

Tests are based on the following testing regimes and must pass before being accepted
