Orbry Boards Free From Banned Substances

The Environment Agency has found that some imported tile backer boards and shower trays contain substances that are banned in Europe. These substances are found in boards that are manufactured using HCFCs – an ozone depleting gas – as the blowing agent to create the extruded polystyrene. Orbry Boards and Shower Trays are manufactured using CO2 as the blowing agent, making them free from banned substances such as HCFC, Bromine & Fluorine.

Orbry Board is a versatile tile backer board that can be used for waterproofing wet rooms & wet areas, as a base for tiling, dry lining insulation for solid walls and as a decoupling & insulating layer with electric underfloor heating systems. The boards are extremely lightweight making them easy to transport and cut to size, but also strong enough to support the weight of heavy tiles – up to 60kg/m2.
