The founding members of the association have commonly felt that the formation of such a body is required and can help the industry’s understanding of magnesium oxide based boards to a much higher level.
The objectives, as are typical within a trade association, are to be a central representative body to put the views of suppliers of magnesium oxide based boards to government departments and agencies, the European Commission and Parliament among other relevant organisations, also to be a research and statistical centre, to aggregate and publish statistics and to provide analysis on the supply and use of magnesium oxide based boards. Furthermore, we intend to provide a forum for the exchange of non-competitive information in relation to the supply and use of magnesium oxide based boards.
We are working to establish a common benchmark which the UK Construction market can refer to in order to ensure best use of these boards and safeguard fitness for purpose. MOBBTA has been formed in order to help ensure good practice and appropriate use of panels produced using predominantly, or a combination or, magnesium oxide, magnesium chloride or magnesium sulphate.
The inaugural members strongly believe that the construction industry and in particular, off-site manufactured system providers, such as timber frame manufacturers, can benefit from the many advantages that these types of boards can provide.
