Questions & Answers
The core of the Qboard® consists of extruded polystyrene foam, a synthetic material that is waterproof, thermally insulating, light and very stable. This is coated in a fibreglass fabric and mortar so that tiles and other surface finishes can be applied directly to it.
Qboard® reno construction boards are coated in a special fleece which is particularly suitable for plaster.
Any conventional tools: knives, cutters, handsaws, electric jigsaws, electric circular saws or circular table saws. You can use sandpaper for precision work and if you need a hole, then just use a screwdriver.

Yes, the core of the Qboards® consists of extruded polystyrene foam, a synthetic material that has excellent thermal insulation properties. It has a thermal conductivity of approx. 0.035 W/(m·K).
No, Qboards® are not soundproof.
Screws don't stay in place permanently in the foam core. Therefore, larger/heavier objects have to be screwed through the construction boards to a firm subsurface behind them. However, smaller objects (up to about 3 kg) can be fixed directly into Qboard® construction boards using special spiral dowels (such as FID dowels from Fischer).
