Key Features

  • Water Resistance
  • Mould Resistant
  • Strongest on market
  • Easy to install

HardieBacker Cement Backerboard 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 like bathrooms, for a shower wall or a bathroom floor, where they are exposed to extreme moisture. It is recommended to use 6mm HardieBacker Cement Backerboard for the floor and 12mm HardieBacker Cement Backerboard for the wall.

Protect your home and family
The durable cement formulation of HardieBacker Cement Backerboard provides superior water resistance and its proprietary Mouldblock Technology offers additional protection against mould. A low level of mould spores in your home isn't abnormal but if left untreated, mould can colonize and release millions of airborne breathable spores. Potential health effects and symptoms associated with mould exposure may include allergic reactions, asthma and other respiratory complaints. Won't rot, swell or warp when exposed to moisture. Mouldblock Technology protects the job from dangerous mould growth. No primer required. Easy to score and snap. Can hold 100kg m2 while conventional plasterboards claim to hold up to 32kg m2. Beyond its potential health effects, mould can also pose a threat to the value of your home. Once mould has established itself, it could be very expensive to clean up, could cause the market value of your home to decrease and could require you to move out until the mould is properly cleaned. Help protect your home and family to resist moisture that can lead to mould growth before it starts - request your builder or contractor to use HardieBacker Cement Backerboard for tile and stone.

Mixed feedback, great product but hard to use and fix. Plastering on these boards although recommended did not give good results, 3 layers of PVA before skim work!

Good stuff. Be aware you can't just score it like in the Hardiebacker videos - you have to give a good hard score 5 to 10 times before the board will snap.

Not bad
