Technical purpose
Glasroc H TILEBACKER consists of gypsum incorporating a tissue of glass fibre immediately below the surface of the board. The core is reinforced with glass fibre rovings. The pre-primed acrylic coating provides a suitable tiling surface and enhanced water resistance. Additionally, boards contain an anti-fungal agent. Glasroc H TILEBACKER is a specialist board product and has a square edge on the long edges and has short edges sawn straight. This specialist board is one of the products within our specialist board range that is certified to BES 6001 achieving a rating of ‘Very Good. Specialist boards have been developed for demanding applications calling for high levels of combined fire, moisture and impact resistance. The unique properties of this exceptionally fine-surfaced, non-paper faced gypsum board provide solutions for a range of applications, from frameless encasement of steelwork for advanced fire protection, thermal insulation of semi-exposed soffits and the lining of steel-framed walls in industrial buildings, to the creation of aesthetically inspiring curved structures. Glasroc H TILEBACKER is a high performance board specifically designed for use in wet areas such as bathrooms and kitchens. High levels of moisture and mould resistance, combined with superior dimensional stability make it the high performance alternative to plywood and cement boards, reducing the risk of failure and protecting your reputation. Glasroc H TILEBACKER is simple to install, it has a pre-primed surface for tiling, is easy to cut, easy to carry and easy to fix. It’s also simple to finish in those areas where tiles are not installed. Easy to install means less time fixing the board and more time fixing tiles.
