Want to protect floor tiling project from failures?
Try the Dunlop ProCover Uncoupling Mat, which allows tradespeople to tile onto difficult floors at risk from stresses and movement.
It also works as an anti-crack membrane and provides a buffer layer between the tiled layer and the substrate.
This protects against the different rates of contraction and expansion experienced by the floor and tile layer depending on moisture and temperature.
This is a particular problem for floors which suffer from lateral movement, such as new sand and cement screeds, underfloor heating and timber floors.
Without an uncoupling mat providing a buffer, tiles can crack and de-bond as the background moves laterally, potentially costing tradespeople time and money in repair and recompense.
In addition to providing a solution for tiling onto difficult floors, Dunlop ProCover is easy to install, comes in five-metre rolls, and has pre-marked gridlines. Dunlop ProCover can also be butt-jointed with no overlap, meaning no tape is needed. It can be tiled on immediately after laying.
Furthermore, the product is only 1mm thick, preventing excessive height build-up, and comes with a 10-year guarantee when used as part of a suitable system of Dunlop tile adhesive and grout.
