Tile Backer BENEFITS
GreenGlass tile backer is an excellent tile substrate for new construction as well as remodeling in both commercial and residential projects.
Versatile Uses. GreenGlass tile backer is the obvious tile substrate choice in wet-area applications such as bathrooms, shower enclosures, and kitchen countertops. However, it is also ideal in commercial/industrial kitchens, laundry rooms, locker rooms, laboratories, and enclosed swimming pools and steam rooms—anywhere that moisture and mold resistance is crucial—and in high-humidity, non-tile areas as well.

Code-Compliant Substrate. You can specify GreenGlass tile backer with confidence. It is IRC and IBC compliant with the code-recognized standard for a fiberglass mat water-resistant gypsum substrate for use as a tile backer according to the recommendations of the Tile Council of North America.

Tile Bond-Strength Tested. GreenGlass passed ceramic tile bond-strength testing conducted by the Tile Institute of America performed on tile attached to a GreenGlass substrate using dry set and polymer-modified mortar to verify compliance with the Uniform Building Code. Installers can be assured that their work will be trouble-free and your job can progress with minimum callbacks and delays. Learn More
Application Efficiency and Simplicity. Light and easy to handle, GreenGlass tile backer—in 1/4"-, 1/2"- and 5/8"-thick panels in varying dimensions—is sized to fit the job. Installation is efficient as GreenGlass scores and snaps like traditional gypsum. Plus, its built-in moisture-blocking acrylic coating means there’s no need to waste time and labor installing a separate waterproof membrane. Learn More
