Cement Board

ARC Manufacturing cementboard

Product Description

This is a combination of cement and
reinforcing fibers formed into 4 foot by 8
foot sheets 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick that are
typically used as a tile backing board.
Cement board can be nailed or screwed
to wood or steel studs to create a
substrate for vertical tile and attached
horizontally to plywood for tile floors,
kitchen counters and backsplashes. It
can be used on the exterior of buildings
as a base for exterior plaster (stucco)
systems and sometimes as the finish
system itself.
Cement board adds impact resistance
and strength to the wall surface as
compared to water resistant gypsum
boards. Cement board is also fabricated
in thin sheets with polymer modified
cements to allow bending for curved
surfaces
