Schlüter KERDI-BOARD is a tile backer board made from extruded XPS hard foam with cement-free reinforcing material on both sides and fleece webbing to enhance anchoring to the tile adhesive. These multifunctional tile backer boards can be used to create a smooth and even surface for tiling, as a structural panel, and as a waterproof layer beneath tiles. Tile Fix Direct is now stocking Schluter KERDI-BOARD in 5mm and 12.5mm thicknesses, perfect for tile installations, waterproofing, and dry lining.
In many new buildings and renovation projects the substrates are not suitable for tiling directly, particularly in areas with high moisture. Often this type of application will require waterproofing, which can be done easily using Schluter KERDI-BOARD. The Schluter tile backer boards can be used to create a level substrate for tiling over masonry, stud walls, concrete, plaster and existing tiles. The installation method will depend on the type of substrate and use, see the Schluter KERDI-BOARD Technical Data Sheet for further information.
The Schluter KERDI-BOARD allows for quick and easy cutting, with gridlines printed on the surface creating 10x10mm squares to use as a guide. The boards can be cut to size and shape using a simple utility knife. Once installed the waterproof boards are completely smooth and level, and remain free from distortion, decay and rotting.
