What are the similarities and differences in DensArmor Plus® high-performance interior panels and DensShield® tile backer?

0

DensShield® tile backer and DensArmor Plus® high-performance interior panels similarities: Both use coated fiberglass mats as the back facer material. When installed against the wall framing, both products provide a fiberglass mat surface facing the wall cavity that resists possible mold growth on the back of the panel. DensShield and DensArmor Plus both have cores that are moisture resistant, manufactured to ASTM C 630 specifications. DensShield and DensArmor Plus differences: DensArmor Plus does not have a water-stopping acrylic coating. The coating on DensShield provides a water barrier to stop moisture from penetrating into the product and wall. DensShield is made to be used in wet areas such as showers and tub areas as a substrate for ceramic tile. DensShield is manufactured to ASTM C 1178. DensArmor Plus features a tapered edge for joint finishing while DensShield has a square edge.
