Why Use Tile Backer Board on floors?
Our fibre cement Tile Backer Board will give a stable and flat surface when tiling over a wooden floor, this prevents any grout from cracking by reducing excessive flex or movement. The tile backer board will become water-resistant once primed with an SBR primer, the tile backer board is also A1 fire rated to give you peace of mind. Our Tile backer board is an ideal covering for a chipboard floor, chipboard can be a problem for adhesive to stick to due to the large amounts of wax used in its manufacturing process, our fibre cement backer boards are a fantastic stable surface to tile onto that work well with flexible tile adhesives. The 6mm thick tile backer board will give the same strength as 15mm plywood without the complication of the height that plywood will give. The tile backer board comes in a 1200 x 600mm size covering an area of 0.72m² which makes it very easy to transport and move around on site. Our tile backer board is very quick to install, cutting it with a scoring knife and fixing it with mega-strength adhesive you can get your surface ready to tile in a very short time. The insulation properties of the tile backer board make it a great surface to fit one of our electric underfloor heating systems onto.
