Question:

For what would you use 4'X8' sheets of 5/32 thick cement board impregnated with fibers?

I found these in a house I bought and am not sure what they are nor what they would be used for. I'd hate to just throw them out if they could be used.

Answer:

Not for tile like every one is suggesting. That is way to thin. That size isn t even a 1/4 thick. That product , what every is is , isn t for tiling, thats for sure. Maybe a wall board for insulating of some type? Even thats a guess. GL

Backer board instead of drywall in areas with moisture issues such as bathrooms and kitchen back splash area, or as an underlayment for tile.

Backer-board for tiling walls or floors. An absolute must in bathroom showers and tub enclosures.

I guess I would use them in a basement insatallation. Or in a bathroom.. It's drywall. Slap it up amd call it a day.
