FIBEROCK Aqua-Tough tile backerboard is a unique, fiber-reinforced gypsum product that represents a new era in substrate performance for wet or dry areas, as recognized within the TCNA Handbook and International Residential Code. This durable panel offers superior performance and tile bond in addition to an integral water-resistant core.
Unlike traditional water-resistant gypsum board, FIBEROCK Aqua-Tough tile backerboard derives both strength and water-resistance from its uniform composition. Made of a uniquely engineered gypsum/cellulose-fiber combination, it is strong, water resistant, and mold resistant, scoring a 10, the highest possible rating on ASTM D 3273. With no paper face to delaminate, tear, or scratch, it maintains its integrity, even when wet.
The backerboard can be finished with ceramic tile or painted, and has a 20 year limited warranty. It is environmentally friendly, made from 95-percent recycled materials, earning it Green Cross Certification from Scientific Certification Systems.
