Tile Backer Accessories
GoBoard Seam Fabric - Canada
GoBoard® Seam Fabric is a lightweight, point bonded non-woven that is specifically designed to enhance the performance of all GoBoard products. When used with GoBoard Tile Backer Board and GoBoard Wedge, installers can expect increased tensile strength at the joints and in the change of planes. Get to tile faster using GoBoard Seam fabric due to superior adhesion between GoBoard Pro Sealant and thin-set mortars. And best of all, there’s no need to wait for the sealant to skin over.
- Alkali resistant
- Improved shear bond strength (30%+)
- Increased Joint strength (50%+)
- Shortens the time to tile

Wearing a respirator is recommended when working with GoBoard Pro Sealant in areas that are not well ventilated.

Temporary mechanical abrasion (itching) of skin, eyes, and respiratory tract may occur upon exposure to fibers or dust during handling. GoBoard contains no cement.
Storage and Handling
GoBoard can be stored indefinitely in an enclosed shelter.
GoBoard Washers - Canada
GoBoard® Washers are hardened steel washers that provide maximum holding strength when fastening tile backer board to stud framing. Each washer has tabs for pre-positioning prior to driving the fasteners. These reverse tabs also prevent the washers from stacking while packaged – making them easy to separate. When using GoBoard Washers in your installation, the fastener spacing increases to 12 inches.
- Wood and metal studs
- 12-inch spacing
- East installation

GoBoard Fasteners - Canada
GoBoard® Fasteners are tile backer board fasteners designed for securing GoBoard to wood or metal studs, as well as subfloors. These corrosion-resistant fasteners have larger diameter heads for more holding power and the smooth underside of the head helps mitigate over-driving the screw. GoBoard Fasteners are available in contractor packs of 700 pieces and come with the required T-25 Torx head bit. Using GoBoard Washers is optional with these tile backer board fasteners, depending on your application.
- Wood and metals studs
- T-25 Torx bit included
- Easy installation
GoBoard tile backer board fasteners are for use on:
- 1/4″ GoBoard for floors and countertops
- 1/2″ and 5/8″ GoBoard for walls, showers, ceilings, and floors
GoBoard Pro Sealant - Canada
GoBoard® Pro Sealant is a moisture curing sealant that provides tenacious adhesion to GoBoard and other common building materials. Use GoBoard Pro Sealant to waterproof GoBoard joints and fastener penetrations and adhere GoBoard to itself and other building materials. Because it contains no solvents or isocyanates, GoBoard Pro Sealant is environmentally friendly, non-toxic, and exhibits minimal odor.
