Siding - Miura Board

Miura BoardTM is an extremely versatile material that provides an eco-friendly alternative to wood, plastic, cellulose, and fiber cement in a wide variety of outdoor construction projects. Miura BoardTM siding is made from 100% recycled materials, including up to 50% carpet backing diverted from landfills. Because of its eco-friendly composition, Miura BoardTM doesn’t risk exposing installers to harmful silica dust.

Miura BoardTM can be worked with just like wood, whether you need to nail, drill, cut, or sand it, but it can also be water jet and welded in the same way as metal. This opens up great opportunities in decking, siding, concrete forming, and marine applications.

 

Why Miura BoardTM Siding

Miura BoardTM comes with a cost-efficient installation plan and is impervious to hail, water, termites, fungus, and mold. It carries high impact resistance and will never swell, crack, chip, or split. These factors contribute to very low maintenance costs after assembly.

Miura BoardTM can be cut, drilled, nailed, routed, and sanded, just like wood. This building material is ideal for curved walls, soffit, and fascia. Workers can also remove and reinstall Miura BoardTM as needed after initial assembly, and it will not crack or dent even in a hailstorm. On top of its silica dust-free composition, Miura BoardTM resists UV rays and is 100% recyclable. All these traits mean that Miura BoardTM can stand the test of time, which we guarantee by offering a 30-year limited warranty for every product.

Miura BoardTM siding is available in the following standard dimensions:

  • ½ ” thick
  • 12’ long
  • 5 ¼”, 7 ¼”, or 12” wide

These dimensions result in 4”, 6” and 10 ¾” exposures.

 

Product Color

At our Texas plant, we use only recycled materials and add no pigments. As a result, our product has been variously described as grey, slate, and even “cement-like” in appearance. What we deliver may look different from the sample. Please contact us if the color is very important to you, and we’ll do our best to ensure we narrow the range of color fluctuation in your order. Pigments can be added at a cost premium.

 

Benefits of Miura BoardTM

Miura BoardTM replaces cedar, vinyl, aluminum and fiber-cement for siding.

As another huge plus, using this 100% upcycled product will reduce the amount of waste going to landfills as well as improve your environmental standing in your community. Not to mention, this unique, aesthetically pleasing material will set your outdoor features apart from their competition.

 

Technical Aspects of Miura BoardTM

Miura BoardTM brings many one-of-a-kind technical aspects to bear as well. Miura BoardTM has a density of 66 lbs./ft3, which is comparable to that of African Teak. The specific gravity = 1.06 g/cm3.

Technical Aspects of Miura Board

Miura Board brings many one-of-a-kind technical aspects to bear as well. Miura Board has a density of 66 lbs./ft3, which is comparable to that of African Teak. It also possesses a specific gravity of 1.06 g/cm3. Thismeans that a paver measuring 12” × 12” × 2” weighs approximately 10 lbs., but we can proportionally increase the density as needed by incorporating a mineral charge.

Polymer Testing of St. Louis, Inc., found that Miura Board using rice hulls as fiber complied with ASTM D-790 flexural strength and modulus standards. Additionally, because Miura Board is not comprised of 100% resin but instead of a resin–fabric blend, there’s no risk of static buildup.

An independent testing laboratory called Consultare, located in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, found that Miura BoardTM “Ecoblock” samples containing 30% fiber and 70% polymer achieved compressive strength test results of 5,874 psi (40.5 Mpa). The material also passed Izod impact resistance tests, which evaluate materials by hitting them with testing arms at various forces until the arm breaks.

What’s more, customer testimonials from around the world attest to Miura Board’s superior ability to resist abrasion, especially in moisture-heavy environments that would rot or corrode other materials. Manufacturers in Brazil and Argentina report high levels of satisfaction using Miura Board in residential, commercial, transportation, and extractive industry settings.
