CertainTeed introduces Diamondback™ Tile Backer

CertainTeed introduces Diamondback™ Tile Backer, a high-performance tile backer that features an industry-first bonding technology that makes tile installation simpler, faster and less costly.
  
Reinforced with embedded glass mats, Diamondback features a patent-pending polymer coating with a unique textured surface that creates a strong bond, reducing tile slippage during installation. The innovative Diamondback coating eliminates the need for an additional moisture barrier, reducing overall installation costs.

Diamondback weighs 40% less than traditional cement boards and is much easier to handle, cut and install. It is GREENGUARD Children & Schools(SM) Certified and contributes directly to healthy indoor air quality.


Ideal for use in bathrooms, kitchens and other high-moisture interior areas, Diamondback Tile Backer is suitable for both wet and non-wet installations in both residential and commercial applications. The product conforms to ASTM C1178 and yields the highest level of mold resistance when tested in accordance with ASTM D3273.
