When installed behind shower walls, countertops, and floors, JetBacker backer board prevents water infiltration and cannot be deteriorated by water, will not de-laminate or peel, rot, or swell. JetBacker contains a patented formulation of MgO resistant to fire, moisture, mildew, mold, and insects.
At the core of the system is Triton Board, comprised of a waterproof membrane factory adhered to JetBacker with overlap extensions to seal between boards. Triton Board does not contain harsh chemicals yet achieves the highest level of moisture resistance, naturally through its composition.
The Triton CI Mat is a double duty membrane that provides waterproofing and cushioning under tiled floors to be installed over OSB, plywood, concrete, and more. Triton CI forms an impenetrable vapor barrier to prevent mold growth and grout discoloration.

2.
Material: Stainless Steel (Natural or High Gloss Finish).
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Like stainless steel, brass Triton Edge L Trim Profiles are an ideal edge protector for industrial and commercial applications. A high mechanical loading capacity makes this profile an excellent choice for busy areas. They are slightly less resistant to harsh chemicals and acids, and will oxidize over time creating a patina appearance. Delete if not required.
 
3.
Material: Brass (Natural or High Gloss Finish).
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Stunning and luminous, Triton Edge L Trim Profiles in chrome-plated brass add a sleek look to your project. They are also highly resistant to mechanical loading.
