X-Bond can be applied in a bathroom over a substrate of concrete, tiles or over light weight construction. The below guide relates to installation of X-Bond over lightweight flooring only. For these types of projects we have been installing X-Bond over DensShield & Showerline products with much success. The below documents are provided as a guide for Bathrooms on a typical lightweight floor arrangement using both products. Individual circumstances may vary. Where propriety materials have been nominated please refer to individual manufacturers installation recommendations.
DensShield is composed of a water-resistant treated core that is covered front and back with fibreglass mats. The mats are permanently integrated with the core during manufacturing, preventing delamination problems that can occur with paper-faced greenboard. DensShield can be used in every area where humidity is present including floors, walls ceilings. DenShield products to be installed to manufacturers instruction and specification.
