I don't know if your replying to my last message, but what the red gard will do is waterproof you seems and you can put it over your cement board and create a rougher surface for the mortar.

Although the rough side will give you more area to grab, the smooth side can also be used..... even for thinset. Don't waste your money on Redgard, if the only reason you're using it is as a bonding surface. it's completely unnecessary, unless you were planning on waterproofing the cement board anyway.
