With our ground breaking M2TECH Moisture and Mold Resistant technology, you can enjoy long term protection from the devastating effects of damp and mold.

In the Middle East we are faced with very high levels of humidity in the external air and artificially high temperature differentials between the interior and exterior of buildings meaning when warm moist air enters the building it condensates creating surface moisture which can quickly turn to mold. In addition to this, activities that take place within the building - daily activities such as cooking, bathing and exercising, and even people breathing, create moisture that can cause problems. If wrongly addressed, this can trigger a whole range of problems for short and long term health of living spaces and its occupants.

How moisture affects our health

Damp, humid atmospheres create ideal breeding grounds for fungi, bacteria and dust mites which thrive on damp walls and ceilings, furnishings and carpets – and which, once they take a hold can be extremely difficult to eradicate. The result is uncomfortable and unhealthy internal conditions, which can promote asthma and lung problems, leading to potential long-term health issues.

M2TECH technology

M2TECH Moisture and Mold resistant features a unique technology that combines moisture and mold resistance and is specially engineered to provide enhanced protection against mold growth. It consists of special high performance biocidal core additives, giving outstanding protection against moisture penetration and the highest possible ratings for mold resistance when tested to ASTM D 3273 and ASTM G 21, the industry standard tests for mold and fungal resistance.

M2TECH technology is available for almost all our plasterboards and is ideal for use on interior walls and ceilings in residential, commercial, healthcare and educational projects where enhanced mold resistance is preferred. It heavily contributes to indoor air quality by eliminating damp and mold, thereby reducing the potential for fungi, bacteria, dust mites and other airborne spores. This creates a cleaner, healthier environment for families and employees living and working in protected spaces.
