Cement Backerboard: HardieBacker®
HardieBacker® is a cement backerboard for tile and stone to be used as a replacement for plasterboard or plywood. It contains Mouldblock™ Technology, giving you superior moisture and mould resistance. HardieBacker® provides a dimensionally stable, flat, cement bonding surface that won’t warp, swell, rot, or deteriorate even in the wettest conditions.
It is available in 6mm and 12mm sheets. HardieBacker® 6mm with EZ Grid® has a recessed fastening pattern to make installation even easier. HardieBacker® is the #1 cement board in the world. HardieBacker® should be used anywhere in your home where tile is applied; on floors, walls and even countertops. It should be used especially in wet areas such as bathrooms and kitchens, where walls and floors are particularly exposed to moisture. Typically, 6mm is used on the floors and 12mm on the walls.
