Uncoupling membranes are about more than just preventing cracks: they have a multi-faceted role to play in achieving a long-lasting tiling assembly.
Unlike an anti-fracture mat, which is designed solely for the purpose of preventing cracks in tile and stone, an uncoupling membrane is designed to separate the tile covering from the substrate below. This means that besides crack prevention, an uncoupling membrane offers a number of other benefits.
• Neutralises tensions between the substrate and tile covering
• Prevents deformation during the curing process
• Load distribution
