What is included in this purchase:
In order to protect the integrity of the tile assembly, an underlayment that performs multiple functions is required. 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.
Designed specifically for ceramic tile and dimension stone installations, Schluter-DITRA serves as an uncoupling layer, waterproofing membrane, and vapor management layer that accommodates moisture from beneath the tile covering. Additionally, DITRA performs all these functions while still providing adequate support/load distribution for the tile covering. Unlike most stores featuring this material we cut to size, whether you need 6inches or 60 feet.
