I don't see any reason why it couldn't, but at the same time I don't know why you would need to waterproof the cement board in this application. Waterproofing the cement board in an application such as a shower is beneficial because of the exposure to water. I would not expect your interior stone to be exposed to water let alone the cement board underneath it.

Sure there are less expensive options out there but why cheap out on such an important step? Redgard will not let you down and the coverage is great, one gallon was enough to do our entire hall bath including the shower surround, the floor and the walls.
by Bryan
Excellent
This product is easy to use, it applies like paint. You can see from the picture that I posted that I had applied it over my shower niche with optional Red Guard tape to seal the joints between the niche and the adjacent studs. The product turns from pink (when wet) to red (when cured). Tile mortar adheres right to it.

I think this product is expensive, But even though the tile experts that taught me methods of redoing a bath surround, say that you do not need to waterproof the cement board they could not be more mistaken. besides the studs your cement board is placed upon, that should be plumb and even edged to each other, the cement board or backer board is the most important foundation of a bath tile redo. Most tile installers will only water proof the joints and corners if that. A $45.00 investment in Red Gard is well worth the cost, to give both a vapor barrier and a secondary containment so water cannot penetrate, if the tile, grout, or thin-set layers fail for any reason. Good insurance!, and can be used to water proof substrate below your vinyl plank floor in the bath, powder, laundry room, or kitchen areas.
