    A:  Pascual, We do not recommend using Gypsum panels (DensShield) behind or around fireplaces. Gypsum products cannot be exposed to sustained temperatures of more than 125°F (52°C). If exposed, the gypsum will calcine or dehydrate causing it to crumble.

          A:  Jeff, Thank you for your interest in DensShield. DensShield is a gypsum based tile backer, so it can be installed directly to the stud. You do not need to install additional gypsum panels.

            Q:Can a cement backer board be used as the bottom of a raised garden

            Answer This Question

            A:  DensShield Tile Backer is not a cement backer board. It is a gypsum panel product with fiberglass mat backer and facer with an acrylic coating and vapor barrier. DensShield Tile Backer is not intended for exterior use. Please contact a cement board manufacturer regarding your inquiry.

            by|Feb 14, 2022

              A:  We do not recommend using DensShield for this application.

                Great for bathrooms
                Our contractor swears by this product for bathrooms. I got the sheets, he did his magic, after some red guard we will be set. Pretty heavy per sheet, I was surprised at how dense and heavy it is.
