XtraBacker is a high density, water resistant construction board suitable for tiles and natural stone.  The board is manufactured using a high density XPS core, with a specially formulated mineral coating, making it lightweight, easy to handle and trimmable. In addition to being water resistant, XtraBacker has excellent thermal properties and compressive strength, making it ideal for use in areas prone to moisture.

BS 5385 Part 1:2008 states that tiling directly onto to plywood is no longer recommended for wall tiling’

XtraBacker is ideal for wall tiling as it offers a dimensionally stable wall background which is both strong and moisture resistant. XtraBacker provides a superior water resistant substrate preventing moisture absorption and mould growth, the most common cause of tile failure in bathrooms & kitchens. It is an ideal alternative to traditional dry lining materials, such as plasterboard.
