Schluter®-DITRA-XL Uncoupling and waterproofing membrane

Schluter®-DITRA-XL are specifically designed for ceramic and stone tile installations. DITRA-XL provide uncoupling to prevent cracked tile and grout. Made of polyethylene, DITRA-XL serve as a waterproofing layer that protects moisture-sensitive substrates, such as plywood/OSB. Free-space on the underside of the matting provides a route for excess moisture and vapor to prevent damage to the tile layer above. DITRA-XL perform all these functions while still providing adequate support/load distribution for the tile covering.
