Ceramic Tile Substrate

Recommended Posts

I just had a rather interesting talk with several others here at work regarding the type of sheetrock being specified for use with ceramic wall tile over it's face.

Does anyone have a reference or resource for any tile manufacturer's requirements or US Gyp comments on the correct (or incorrect) selection of gypsum wall board underneath ceramic wall tile?

(this goes without saying that cement board would be best, but the conversation only relates to gyp products)

Any help is appreciated.

I thought it had to be "greenboard", the oxymoronic water resistant drywall(?).
