Magnesium backer board is a water resistant backer board that will not swell, rot or degrade over time.

Many other tile backer boards are very difficult to score and snap and require up to 6 scores on each straight edge with a specialist cutting tool before the board can be snapped to size. Magnesium backer board is easily scored and snapped with a standard cutting blade resulting in fitting savings of time and money.
