PermaBase has a product for all your applications:
PermaBase innovated the use of lightweight polystyrene beads within the Portland cement core to provide performance benefits unique to only PermaBase. The use of polystyrene aggregate makes PermaBase significantly lighter than standard cement boards. These lightweight beads also contribute to the industry's lowest water absorption, preventing the mortar/finish adhesive from drying prematurely and eliminating expensive call backs. Polystyrene beads also make PermaBase easy to cut with a standard utility knife.
PermaBase's patented reinforced edge is another exclusive feature that distinguishes PermaBase from the competition. This exceptional edge allows fasteners to be installed closer to the edge without fracturing than other cement boards. The reinforced edges also make PermaBase more comfortable to handle and reduces damage from handling.
