Ditra Matting

What Is Schluter Ditra Matting?

Schluter-DITRA is a polyethylene membrane with a grid structure of square cavities each cut back in a dovetail configuration, and an anchoring fleece laminated to it’s underside. Designed for tile and natural stone installations, Schluter-DITRA serves as a waterproofing membrane, a vapour pressure equalisation layer to accommodate moisture occurring at the underside of the substrate, and an uncoupling layer for problematic substrates.

Advantages of Ditra Matting?

  • Uncoupling – DITRA Matting decouples the floor covering from the substrate, which means that movement in the substrate will not affect the tiles.
  • Waterproofing – DITRA Matting creates a waterproofing assembly with the tile layer, as long as the joints, floor to wall transitions and connections to building fixtures are properly installed.
  • Equalisation of Vapour Pressure – Vapour pressure is neutralised as the moisture in the substrate is able to evaporate due to the air channels on the underside of the DITRA Matting being interconnected and remaining open.
  • Load Impact – Tiles that are laid on top of DITRA Matting are able to withstand greater loads because the matting transfers the load directly to the substrate.
  • Adhesive Properties – DITRA Matting has excellent adhesion and can be used for both wall and floor coverings.
