Available sizes and Thickness

1/4″, 1/2” and 5/8″ thickness. The size of the boards are 3′ wide by 4’, 5’ 64”, 6’ and 8’ lengths.

ProTEC™ Concrete Backer Board is a superior underlayment for interior and exterior construction applications. It is made of durable Portland cement, alkaline resistant fiberglass mesh, and lightweight aggregate. ProTEC provides a stable, long-lasting foundation for ceramic tile and other facing materials used on floors, walls, ceilings, countertops and exteriors. Fin Pan, Inc. patented the continuous manufacturing process for concrete backer board over 30 years ago.

Unlike wood or gypsum-based products, ProTEC is unaffected by water, moisture or steam and will not decay, warp, rot or soften. ProTEC is the ideal underlayment for areas constantly exposed to water such as shower enclosures, around bathtubs, sinks, as well as swimming pool and whirlpool decks.

ProTEC Concrete Backer Board provides a strong, stable substrate for high impact areas such as foyers, kitchens, bathrooms and utility rooms. The 1/2” board offers a wrapped, tapered edge for nail or screw penetrations closer to the edge.

The thinner 1/4” board was specifically designed for today’s dramatic new tile, marble and stone applications on floors and countertops. When applied under ceramic floors, 1/4” ProTEC reduces the need to shorten doors over thresholds and reduces level variations when abutting carpet and other flooring materials.

Limitations

ProTEC Backer Board is water resistant, but allows water and water vapor passage. If total waterproofing is required, the use of a waterproofing membrane is mandatory.

ProTEC units are not to be used as structural loadbearing members.

ProTEC must never be used over cushioned vinyl flooring. This type of flooring must be removed before ProTEC is installed

Fastening

Wood Studs: These must be 3 1/2” deep and no more than 16” o.c. Use conventional 1 1/2” galvanized roofing nails, preferably screw type, spaced a maximum of 8” apart, or 1 1/4” Hi-Lo® type-S-point screws

Steel Studs:

These must be 20-gauge or heavier and no more than 16” o.c. When using 20-gauge studs, use a corrosion resistant 1 1/4” Hi-Lo bugle head type-S-point screw or 1 1.4” RocOn type-Spoint screw. When using 18 to 20 gauge studs type S-12 self-drilling point or a corrosion resistant screw with a self-embedding head and a self-drilling point. All screws must be spaced a maximum of 8” apart.
