GoBoard® Waterproof Tile Installation Materials
The GoBoard Installation Instructions / Technical Data Sheet approves two material
types for joints and fastener locations sealing in order to achieve a waterproof tile
installation: polyurethane sealant/caulk (in tube); and, 2″ wide polymer-coated alkaliresistant fiber glass mesh tape and mortar coated with a liquid waterproofing
GoBoard customers have requested assistance in selecting these two materials. While
Johns Manville does not recommend the use of specific brands, the following are of the
proper material types and tested to comply with ANSI 118.10.
