    The premium product for wet rooms is Cement fibre sheeting, the thickness will depend on what supplier / manufacturer you select.

    The next is possibly yellow tongue, but not on my list. I like to avoid any product has any timber in it's make, treated or not.

    Good luck and fair winds.

    There is a few options, if you want to put down Scyon it comes in two thicknesses, 19mm, which will span 450mm joists, and 22mm which will span 600mm joists.
    Scyon and Durafloor are the new generation of compressed flooring, these are an alternate to the traditional compressed fibro (which is still available).

    IMO Innova Durafloor is the superior product as they only have one grade available Interior / Exterior, JH Scyon comes in two flavours Interior & Exterior, with the Exterior version being more expensive than the Interior, and also more expensive than Durafloor, you cannot use the interior version of Scyon in an exterior situation, so your better of getting Durafloor as it will work in both situations.

    You can cut it using standard woodworking tools, if your going to run a circular saw through it, it is recommended to get the special Fibre Cement blade, but you could use a minimal tooth tungsten blade which works fine, just remember to wear a suitable dust mask as it will still kick up a bit of dust.

    The other option is traditional compressed fibro, this has been around for years and is a proven product, the big disadvantage is the product is hard to work with, you need to use a grinder to cut it and this kicks up all sorts of dust concerns, it is very heavy and basically an awkward product to work with in comparison to the modern alternatives.

    Below are some links for you to read up on the various products.
