Key Features of Aquafix Tile Backer Board
Easy to transport and handle. No static extra load requirements when used on timber floors, balcony roofs and attic conversions.
Suitable for heavy duty applications. Aquafix Tile Backer can hold a tile weight of 60kg per m², double that of standard lining board. With a high compressive strength of 300 kPa (30 tonnes/m²), Aquafix Tile Backer Board can be used on virtually any tiled floor.
Impervious to Moisture:
The board will remain dimensionally stable, even in high humidity situations. Being completely waterproof, as opposed to merely water-resistant means that no water at all can be absorbed into the core of the board. As a result, the board will not bend, bow, or distort in the way that plasterboard can. For this reason, Aquafix Tile Backer Board can be used in many situations including wet rooms and steam rooms.
Minimal heat transfer to adjacent materials e.g. windowsills, ground bearing concrete slabs and external applications, XPS (extruded polystyrene) is one of the most effective insulation materials available and also has the benefit that its thermal insulation properties are not affected whatsoever by wet or damp conditions. Other softer insulation materials absorb water, leading to the material losing its insulating properties.
Quick and simple to work with. Easy to create curves and profiles. Time saving = cost saving.
Suitable for use on metal and timber studwork, or on existing floors and walls to cover unstable and uneven surfaces.
