Schluter®-DITRA Uncoupling and waterproofing membrane

Schluter®-DITRA is specifically designed for ceramic and stone tile installations. DITRA provide uncoupling to prevent cracked tile and grout. Made of polyethylene, DITRA 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 perform all these functions while still providing adequate support/load distribution for the tile covering.

Specifications

Specifications
  • Provides uncoupling, waterproofing, vapor management, and heavy load distribution to ensure the durability and integrity of tile installations
  • DITRA has a nominal 1/8" (3 mm)-thickness which minimizes tile assembly thickness and reduces transitions to lower surface coverings
  • Can be installed on top of concrete, plywood, OSB, gypsum, existing vinyl floors, structural planks, sub-floors, and radiant heated floors
  • Features a grid structure of square cutback cavities and an anchoring fleece laminated to the underside which is bonded to the surface of the substrate and prevents thin-set from filling the cavities
  • Quick and easy to install; few tools required and ready to receive tile immediately
