    Only use ply if you REALLY want to do it again inside 6 months!

    Circular saw, set 2mm less than the thickness of the insulation board and cut every 10mm with a straight edge.
    Works for me

    Put a bath panel on . Far easier to remove if you have clean the waste trap or change your taps

    Thank you all for the reply and suggestions, there is not enough
    Space for a 20mm board, probably can get away with max 12mm, i tried a sample of flexible plywood, the original plastic panel is all cracked and a replacement can’t be purchased, will try to load the pics

    That gradual curve will be fine with a 4 or 6mm insulation board

    Just get some normal Wedi and slice half way so it curves to fit. Smooth of with rapid set and scrim tape

    Hello all thanks for all the useful suggestion, I am particularly interested at the solution with the 6mm insulation board, will it bend without any cutting or slices, will a 10mm needed to be sliced? Which kind of insulation boards are recommended? Thank you very much.

    The curve is so gradual that you may get away without having to score the 6mm board and any board thicker than this. A 4mm board would not need scoring.

    Numerous makes available- Wedi, schluter, marmox, jackoboard.
    Where are you?

    I don't think a 6mm board will follow that curv without slicing it
