Bonsal American Announces Partnership with National Gypsum

January 11, 2007

Bonsal American has announced that National Gypsum Co., headquartered in Charlotte, NC, will be the company’s new supplier for cement backer board, an important component as a substrate for ceramic tile on walls, floors and countertops.

"We are pleased to have National Gypsum as a marketing partner," said Kevin McFadden, director of marketing, Bonsal tile products. "They are a leader in the backer board industry with their PermaBase brand cement board. National Gypsum has excellent quality products, packaging, and customer service, which is consistent with the way we do business at Bonsal American. Our continued goal is to provide value-added, high-quality products and services to our distribution partners."

PermaBase offers features and benefits not found with other cement backer boards. The EdgeTech double-wrapped edge allows for closer fastening at the edge without crumbling or blowout. It also minimizes jobsite and in-transit damage. PermaBase’s low water absorption allows full mortar open time as well as a better tile bond.

Bonsal American is one of the largest producers of packaged building material products in the U.S., including cement mixes, concrete repair, and restoration products and tile setting products.
