    I contacted the manufacturer about using hardibacker directly on top of a concrete floor to serve as a flat base before tiling.
    They advised me that they dont recommend using it on concrete but didn't say why.

    Does anyone know why this might be?

    Probably because it wouldn’t be solid bedded and you’d get weak spots, why would you want to attempt it? Just Self level it.
