Introducing FlexMat, a next-generation uncoupling membrane, high performance uncoupling membrane for use under ceramic tile and stone installations. Can be used for both residential and commercial applications. The unique patented design of Flextile FlexMat uncouples the floorcovering from the substrate and prevents the transfer of stresses to the tiled surface. Cracks in the substrate are bridged and not transferred to the tile installed.
Its design also allows for installations with both latex-modified and unmodified tile mortars, for proper installation and maximum strength of large format porcelain, tile and stone. It allows for installation over a wide range of substrates, including plywood/OSB, concrete, gypsum, heated floors, etc.
