    Schluter Kerdi board. Great product, but expensive. You might have trouble finding it too. The glue is also costly. In my opinion it's not necessary. If you need a vapor barrier for a steam shower, then you can use traditional construction methods along with Schluter kerdi. If you just need waterproofing, then there are plenty of other roll on products out there.
