Magnum Board® Installation & Finishing Instructions

Magnum Board® Installation Guidelines


Cutting

Work Station
  1. Position cutting station so that wind will blow dust away from user or others in working area and allow for ample dust dissipation.
  2. Use one of the following methods based on the required cutting rate and jobsite conditions.

Cutting Methods

Best

  • Score and snap using carbide-tipped scoring knife or utility knife (Ability to use this method depends on thickness of Magnum Board® being installed.)
  • Fiber-cement shears (electric or pneumatic).

Better

  • Dust reducing circular saw equipped with appropriate blade and HEPA vacuum extraction.

Good (for low to moderate cutting only)

  • Dust reducing circular saw with appropriate saw blade.

NOTES:
Always use correct tools when executing cutting operations.
Even though Magnum Board® is a non-toxic building material, ALWAYS wear a dusk mask, safety glasses and follow MSDS Guidelines.

Clean-up

During clean-up, dust and debris, NEVER dry sweep as it may excite dust particles into the user?s breathing area. Instead, wet debris down with a fine mist to suppress dust during sweeping, or use a HEPA vacuum to collect particles.

NOTES:
1.For maximum protection (lowest respirable dust production), Magnum Building Products® recommends always using Best level cutting methods where feasible.
2.Never use a power saw indoors.
3.Never use a circular saw blade that is inappropriate for the specific operation being undertaken.
4.Never dry sweep - use wet suppression methods or HEPA vacuum.
5.Never use a grinder or continuous rim diamond blade for cutting.
