Uncoupling Membranes – With anti-fracture properties, these membranes provide excellent crack suppression by allowing the flooring to move independently of the substrate. Composed of a thin sheet with a waffle-like grid on one side and anchoring fabric on the underside, these membranes are excellent for use under all types of tile and stone flooring.
Liquid Waterproofing Membranes – Featuring a thick, liquid consistency similar to paint, these membranes are excellent for providing waterproofing in showers, swimming pools, fountains, and other similar applications. Additionally, liquid membranes also have horizontal and vertical crack suppression, crack isolation, and anti-fracture properties. They come in bucket or pail and are easily applied with a paint brush or roller.
Cork – This versatile membrane is used for impact noise and sound reduction, crack isolation, thermal insulation, and mildew and moisture resistance. Cork is an environmentally friendly product that naturally occurs and is sustainably harvested from the bark of a tree.
Sheet Membranes – These membranes are made from rubberized asphalt sheet or flexible foam. Some are designed specifically for used under tile and stone flooring while others are designed for used under wood and laminate flooring. Sheet membranes can offer anti-fracture resistance, thermal insulation, sound reduction, and be a moisture barrier.
