GlasRoc Tile Backer by CertainTeed Gypsum features Embedded Glass Reinforced Gypsum technology, which combines reinforcing glass mats, fully-embedded into a water-resistant gypsum core and a gray textured acrylic coating on the surface. The coated surface results in superior adhesion of latex-modified thin-set mortars for tile installations.

“The growing awareness of the life cycle cost of mold and moisture damage has shifted demand toward newer technology solutions,” says Ashwin Himat, director of marketing for CertainTeed Gypsum. “GlasRoc Tile Backer combines innovative, fully-embedded glass mats for moisture and mold resistance with easy installation and a lower installed cost than traditional cement board tile backers.”
