What screws should I use please help ?

Hello I live in a condo redoing the bathroom and my studs are light steel. I got Denshield as a backer for my tub/shower. I know that black phosphate screws seem to be not good enough for installing this as they my rust. But I can’t find any Corrosion resistant screws that are for light steel find tipped. Can I use cement board screws on Denshield please help?

GoBoard screws are made for wood or steel, or coated, very tough and have a wide head to really hold the backer board. Additionally they are smooth underneath the head so it won’t rip the face coating As opposed to many cement board screwheads.. https://www.jm.com/en/goboard-tile-b...ard-fasteners/

Screws for metal studs

Art, please use screws designed for metal studs Vs wood studs. Screws for metal studs have a much finer thread so that at least hopefully a couple or more threads will engage with the stud wall. Wood threaded screws have a much coarser thread and you may only get one revolution, or less, of the thread engaging with the metal stud material;they can work loose very easily. Very often, the sheet metal type will also be self-drilling.

Kevin, are the JM newer GoBoard screws available in the SEA area? I looked extensively for them when at that stage of installation and could NOT find them in stock anywhere. One site listed them in Contractor's pack of 700 but I didn't check to see if they actually had them in stock. Good success Art.
