Tile Backer for Interior Applications in Wet and Non-Wet Areas
From National GypsumNational Gypsum introduces Gold Bond® BRAND e2XP® Tile Backer, a fiberglass-faced gypsum panel for interior tile applications in both wet and non-wet areas.
e2XP Tile Backer is comprised of an acrylic-coated fiberglass front facer that provides a water barrier for superior moisture resistance capabilities. This makes it ideal for use in interior residential and commercial applications such as shower and tub enclosures, walls and ceilings, countertops, backsplashes, locker rooms and more.

In addition to scoring a 10 for mold resistance, the highest possible score per ASTM D3273, e2XP Tile Backer is approved for inclusion in 1- and 2-hour UL fire-rated designs and has achieved GREENGUARD Children & SchoolsSM Certification, the industry’s most stringent indoor air quality standard.
