Uncoupling Membranes for Tiling Systems


Read LATICRETE Technical Service Manager, Fred Gray's article on Uncoupling Membranes for Tiling Systems, which was featured in TileToday, Issue 80 by clicking here.

STRATA_MAT is a next generation high performance uncoupling mat for use under tile and stone installations for both residential and commercial applications. Designed to replace traditional underlayment materials. Engineered to allow safe, reliable installations of tile and stone over "problematic" surfaces such as wood, cracked concrete, post and pre tensioned concrete. The unique patent pending design of STRATA_MAT provides for an enhanced mechanical bond of the adhesive and provides for faster drying of the adhesive. This allows for faster installations and for shorter time to grout. Specifically designed for use with the appropriate adhesive for the tile or stone being installed, STRATA_MAT allows for the proper adhesive to be used with porcelain or large format tiles as well as moisture senstive stone and agglomerate stones.
