Anti-Fracture/Waterproofing Membranes

Schluter Ditra

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. Further, DITRA performs all these functions while still providing adequate support/load distribution for the tile covering.

Schluter Kerdi

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. Tiles can be installed directly on Schluter-KERDI using the thin-bed method. Other trowel-applied covering materials, such as plaster, can also be used.

Protecto Wrap AFM #1

AFM Anti Fracture Membrane is made up of a tough fabric top with an aggressive rubberized adhesive that has the flexibility and strength to withstand structural movement and concrete shrinkage cracks up to 3/8″ without transferring the stress load to the finished tile topping. AFM is designed for thin-set tile applications. Installations requiring more than 3/8″ of thin-set mortar need to be raised with a self-leveling compound or a pre-mortar bed and allowed to cure prior to installation of AFM. Use latex modified thin-set mortar to install tile over AFM.

HydraFlex™ Waterproofing Crack Isolation Membrane

Ready-to-use, flexible, mold and mildew resistant waterproofing crack isolation membrane for interior and exterior applications. Forms a smooth, monolithic, watertight surface over walls, floors and ceilings. HydraFlex™ Membrane stops in-plane cracks up to 1/4″ (6 mm) wide at the subfloor from telegraphing through to ceramic and stone tile. For residential to extra heavy commercial applications.

Roll-On Crack Isolation Membrane

Ready-to-use, flexible, mold and mildew resistant crack isolation membrane. Forms a monolithic film over floors to stop in-plane cracks in the substrate up to 1/8″ (3mm) from transferring through the tile or stone. For residential to extra heavy commercial applications.
