the green stuff mate and you will need to tank any wet area's or you could use aquapanel and tile straight on it but personly i would put some proper fixings through it aswell as the dot and dab

is aquapanel something i can get from wickes or b&q??
i assume this gets stuck to the wall then its ok to tile direct to it without the need to tank???
