HardieBacker Board 1200x800x12mm
A 12mm thick cement backerboard for tile and stone, to be used as an alternative to plasterboard for tiling on walls.
HardieBacker 12mm is a water-resistant, cement backerboard for tile that fastens directly to the wooden frame of a wall. A good tile job begins with using the right materials, and when tiling onto a wall in a wet area, there are a few important things to consider.
- HardieBacker cement backer board is impervious to water damage and will not rot, crack, or swell in the wettest conditions.
- It contains MouldBlock Technology, an anti-mould additive that prevents unseen mould growth behind the walls. It contains no paper facing, a food source for mould or gypsum, which can disintegrate with continuous water exposure.
- Unlike plasterboard, HardieBacker board has a unique cement formulation providing a strong bond to all ceramic or natural stone tiles for applied weights of up to 100kg/m2.
- It is non-combustible and carries an A1 fire rating. HardieBacker 12mm can also be used on the floor when additional height is needed, behind a boiler, or even behind a multi-fuel or log burning stove.
