Size: 1200X800X12mm

At 12 mm thick HardieBacker® 500 cement board is the ideal choice for wet area walls; its smooth surface may be tiled, textured or wallpapered. However, if additional height is required HardieBacker® 500 cement board may also be used for floor or worktop applications.

Its unique formulation provides a strong bond to all ceramic or natural stone tiles allowing you to explore the opportunities provided by thicker materials previously considered too heavy for application onto tile backing boards. HardieBacker® 500 cement board cement will carry applied weights of up to 45kg/m².

Produced using James Hardie's proprietary cement formulation, this water-resistant, no-mesh fibre cement board with Mouldblock™ technology is the essential tiling backer board for kitchens, bathrooms and steam rooms.

Unlike many other non-specific tile backing products, the HardieBacker® manufacturing process ensures dimensional stability even when exposed to water for prolonged periods. It contains no paper facing, a food source for mould, or gypsum, which can disintegrate with continuous moisture exposure. It is the lightest cement board available and is easily cut and installed. Furthermore, its unique formulation ensures a strong bond with all leading tile adhesives.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Once you know how... Once you get the hang of cutting this stuff it's very easy to drill, cut and shape for your purpose. 25 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Helpful staff and good products I recently bought a range of products from my local Topps Tiles store (Thetford). I found the staff very helpful and knowledgeable. They gave me good advice and helped me carry my purchases to my car. Great service and a wide ange of really good products. Thasnks Topps Tiles! 08 November 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Also useful for protecting walls around Woodburner After research plumped for this following advice from various woodburner forums. Just remember don't try and cut with a saw - unless you have good blades! It's easier to score both sides(deeply) with a stanley knife and snap. One side is smooth - the other slightly rougher so make sure you know which side you want facing out if painting. 06 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just as it said on the tin Delivered in good time, left in an appropriate place (I was out). No complaints at all. The product was exactly as expected. Used for a closure plate to a customers fireplace. 22 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by great for mosaic work I was using this for a mosaic work rather than its usual use as backing for shower/wetroom walls or floors. The work will hang outside and so I needed some weather proof material that is suitable for tiling on. The hardibacker was great for the purpose. Online ordering with delivery to the store took a little longer than I had expected (over a week) and I understand the Topps tiles online ordering is new to the stores and processes not quite organised yet, so I only got the text telling me the goods had arrived as I was waiting in the store for it to be brought out. Having said that, staff was very friendly and helpful. 01 May 2012
