Cement Board Screws

ITW Buildex introduces a groundbreaking iteration of its trusted Backer-On® and Rock-On® cement board screws. The new, customer-backed screws have been uniquely designed with a patented serrated head, T-25 star drive with Stikfit™ and serrated thread forms to solve common contractor challenges and enhance performance.


The updates to the Backer-On® and Rock-On® Screws allow for shorter installation time, reduced waste and enhanced performance.


Key innovations include a patented serrated head design. The cutting-edge head delivers flush seating—even at an angle—while eliminating mushrooming and reducing board blowout. Another innovation is star drive with T-25 bit for Stikfit™. The star drive recess provides a stick fit for every screw, allowing for one-handed operation with no wear on the bit. Improved serrated thread forms require less torque for faster installation. Updated patented sharp point and lead threads supports immediate pick-up and reduce the effort required to drive.


Designed for use with HardieBacker® Cement Board and USG Durock® Brand Cement Board, the latest screws feature a premium corrosion resistant finish and help prevent moisture buildup in kitchens and bathrooms.


The new Backer-On® and Rock-On® cement board screws are now available exclusively at all Lowe’s stores nationwide.
