Although Palisade tiles are 100% waterproof when used with SilTex Siliconized Acrylic Latex Sealant in the seams, we recommend you follow your local building codes for wet environments like shower and tub enclosures.
We recommend a 100% waterproof substrate that will prevent water from getting behind potentially unsealed areas that would cause mold or other damage.
Acceptable waterproof substrates are:
- Existing ceramic tile walls. No additional preparation required.
- Installation over waterproof substrates, such as:
- Cement Board®
- Schluter Kerdi Board®
- GP Densheild®
- Johns Manville GoBoard®
- Fiberock® and equivalent products.
Always follow manufacturer’s installation instructions to create a waterproof enclosure.
