Magply Tilebacker is a mineral based, homogeneous, environmentally friendly product with a manufacturing process that produces very little in the way of C02 emissions, unlike cement particle and gypsum boards which both generate high levels of C02. Magply Tilebacker Boards help to provide a safe and healthy living environment whilst being a great surface to tile onto.

Magply Tilebacker is available in 6mm and 12mm, board sizes are 1200mm x 800mm. The boards are easy to use and the performance and structure are unaffected by moisture, thus Magply Boards can be used in both indoor and outdoor applications including damp locations such as shower areas, bathrooms and wet rooms. Magply Tilebacker can also be formed to follow gentle curves and is very stable and does not expand or contract when subject to temperature changes.
