You do undertand that cemete board of not water proof, much less even water resistant. It is stamped on the board moisture resistant. That should not be used in a bathroom in the shower area. You will be replacing it in a couple years. Water will soak thru the tile grout, and into the cement board. You will first notice tiles starting to buldge out and become loose. Use a fully waterproof product like Schleuter waterproofing products.

I am redoing an old closet from a kit home and tore the 1/2 sheetrock off to find the words Gold Bond on it and under that was a cardboard and tar sheathing. It was only 1/4" thick and layered with tar like substance in it. Does anyone know the name of it?
