    I got the hard sell the other day at a CTD promotion, I was offered more Hardie FOC if I bought the foam.
    I said I wasn't convinced, then the Hardie guy just switched off and walked away!!

    Does it still need the screws? What about filling voids etc on substrate?

    You still use screws with NMP and megastrength adhesive, I would defo use screws, and would only use foam adhesive on completely flat floors (If I ever use it)

    Only threads you create.
    There will be a icon 'remove best answer' or something similar at the bottom of the post.
    I can't do it :(

    Very frustrating.
    I know this product exists but can't find it to buy it. There is a guy on ebay that is selling it for £20. Squirt it around the edge of the board and then make a swirl like a 'W' on the middle of the board he states.

    Then there was Luke @ Hardiebacker on Twitter over a year ago stating that this is a game changer.

    So how come we are only just hearing about this product?

    How much coverage per can?
    Do we still need screws?
    Can you tile straight away or do you have to wait for the foam to cure?
    Will all the Hardiebacker boards have lips?

    We all know that expanding foam expands. Will you find that your Hardie floor now sits 30cm off the original substrate!

    Come on Hardie guys give us some info.

    The cynic in me says that that Hardie want us to 'test' it before it goes on sale.

    You could use clips to lash the boards together? Ask Andy and I reckon he'll recommend MUSTANG clips!

    That's a good idea. I think we might start seeing green Hardie clips soon!
