Schlüter-Ditra Still Going Strong
SCHLÜTER-Ditra is an uncoupling polyethylene membrane for tile and natural stone installations.
It features a grid structure of square cavities, each cut back in a dovetail configuration, and an anchoring fleece laminated to its underside.
The adhesive mechanically locks into cut-back indentations on the topside of the matting, eliminating the need for further anchoring mesh.
This mechanical lock means that the adhesive does not adhere to the mat so no direct bond is formed, allowing for independent movement.
The geometry of Schlüter-Ditra allows for the absorption of lateral movement in each direction.
Through its two-layer design, it separates the substrate and tile covering by creating free space between the layers.
