Schluter Kerdi Shower Kit is an all inclusive package containing each of the components required to create a maintenance-free, watertight shower assembly without a mortar bed. Schluter-Kerdi-Shower are prefabricated substrates, made of expanded polystyrene foam, for tiled shower bases in conjunction with Schluter-Kerdi waterproofing membrane and Schluter-Kerdi-Drain.
Schluter-KERDI is a bonded waterproof membrane with limited crack-bridging capabilities. It is made of soft polyethylene, which is covered on both sides with a special fleece webbing to anchor the membrane in the thin-set mortar. Schluter-KERDI was developed as a waterproofing membrane to be used in conjunction with ceramic and stone tile coverings.
Schluter-DITRA is a polyethylene membrane with a grid structure of square cavities, each cut back in a merge configuration, and an anchoring fleece laminated to its underside. Schluter-DITRA is bonded to the substrate using thin-set mortar. The anchoring fleece on the underside of Schluter-DITRA is fully engaged in the mortar to provide a mechanical bond to the substrate. Tile is installed over Schluter-DITRA using the thin-bed method in such a way that the mortar becomes mechanically anchored in the square, cutback cavities of the Schluter-DITRA matting.
