Lightweight Mosaic Board

Mosaic construction boards - It's what's under your mosaic that counts!
Mosaic boards provide a strong, waterproof, long-lasting substrate for mosaic decoration.  Our boards are suitable for covering in tiles or over-the-top tesserae! An ideal substrate for thin bed tiling on walls and floors or even render finishes!
The mosaic boards are of high performance, waterproof extruded polystyrene, faced with fibreglass mesh embedded into a cement polymer mortar on each side, which adds extra strength and rigidity to the board.

Board Sizes: (available in 1cm and 2 cm thickness)
30cm x   30cm 
30cm x   60cm
60cm x   60cm

Weight example:
30cm x 30cm Weight = 230gm

Benefits:
Lightweight
base - takes the hassles out of weighty substrates. 
A great solution for mosaics to be displayed at art shows. 
Save money on freight and postage.
Makes your mosaic lighter to carry around!
It's durable, waterproof and easy to cut to shape.
Use a saw or Stanley knife to cut the board into preferred size.
Purchase our fittings for hardware hanging (remember to purchase more fittings if you cut into more pieces!)
Fittings are only required if you wish to hang your mosaic.

Purchase OzMos 3000 # STANDARD and a suitable base colour and spread a coat over the sides and top of the board surface to strenghten and cover the hardware - gives a smooth finish.
If you are transferring a mosaic made by the mosaic fibreglass mesh method, your board will be even stronger!

Suggestions:
-Purchase the mosaic rubber float spreader and the notched trowel for ease of applying the mesh mosaic or spreading thinset topping on your mosaic board.
Purchase fibreglass mesh as a joining mesh if you wish to join boards together to make a larger board.  Use the thinset as the mesh adhesive.
-Want a thicker board?  Use thinset to glue to pieces of board together!
-Joining two or more pieces of board?  Use a strip of fibreglass mesh over the join, front and back and then coat in thinset.
