Can this product be painted and finished like regular drywall? For example, in a tub surround, can I use this product for the entire surround (up to the ceiling), while tiling up to the shower head and painting the remainder above the tile?
Asked by: ray
Yes. DensShield can be painted in non-wet areas and finished like regular drywall.

Is this product rated for tile ceilings?

Thank you for your interest in DensShield Tile Backer. For ceilings, framing should be spaced no greater than 12” (305 mm) o.c. for 1/2” (12.7 mm) or 16” (406 mm) o.c. for 5/8”(15.9 mm) thickness. Board should be applied perpendicular to framing. Fasteners shall be spaced 6” (152 mm) o.c. for walls and ceilings for wood and steel framing. Do not countersink. Drive fasteners flush with grey coated surface.

I don’t see the ASTM rating for this product. Is it okay to use on shower walls? Also, can I use Redguard with it?

Asked by: Elli
Look in the Technical Specs for the ASTM rating, it is there. you CAN use RedGuard, but why would you? You'd only need to use RG at the seams and to cover the screws, if you choose to. Tech specs at: https://www.buildgp.com/product/densshield-tile-backer/ there's a PDF with all the info you need.
