USG Durock® Brand Cement Board with EdgeGuardTM offers architects, builders and tile contractors a strong, water-durable tile base for tub and shower areas. Also an ideal underlayment for tile on floors and countertops in new construction and remodeling. Board is readily applied over steel framing spaced 400 mm o.c. with corrosion-resistant steel screws or hot-dipped galvanized roofing nails. After joints are treated, wall or floor tile is applied using latex fortified mortar or Type I organic adhesive.  

USG Durock® Brand Cement Board with EdgeGuard™ is preferred by many applicators as a base for directly applied finishes, tile, stone and thin brick used in building exteriors. The 12.7 mm and 15.9 mm panels are Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) Classified for fire resistance, and may be used in any UL Design where Type DCB panels are listed.
