What roll sizes does the membrane come in and will I need a truck to transport it?
The rolls are light weight, compared to other products. They are very easy to fit into most vehicles – even a smart car could carry them. The rolls come in the following sizes:
- 3’3″ x 32.8′ (1m x 10m)
- 3’3″ x 98.5′ (1m x 30m)
How thick is the tile subfloor?
It is 1/8th of an inch or 3mm. The thin profile of the membrane allows the user to install it and not loose ceiling height or have issues with wall moldings and door casings as compared to other types of thicker products.
How does SUPERSEAL Tile Subfloor work?
With a dimpled surface and a fleece layer on both sides of the plastic inner core the membrane provides and air gap between the existing substrate that may have cracks. The inner plastic sheet provides a separating waterproof layer keeping water and moisture from transferring from either direction. The fleece layers unlike any other tile subfloor has have very aggressive surface that quickly bonds the thinset to the membrane creating a super strong structure protecting the floor finish.
What is the time frame it takes to install as compared to other product?
SUPERSEAL Tile subfloor is very straight forward. Mark out the area with a caulk line as to where the tile floor will be installed. Unroll and pre-cut the membrane unless it is a very large area. Mix the thinset to consistency and apply over the existing floor and then roll out the membrane embedding it into the thinset ensuring there is a 100% surface contact with the thinset. You can either start installing the tile right away (there is no waiting time required) or you can wait for the thinset to harden up in a case of a larger area and install the tiles.
What is the minimum tile size I can use?
The minimum tile size requirement is 2” x 2”. If the tiles are smaller than 2” they would have to be the type that come on a pre attached backing that holds them all together. This type is typically used in showers, counter tops, and back splashes.
Can I use the tile subfloor on vertical wall application?
It is not typically used in this manner, but is more than acceptable if it is properly bonded using a fast set thinset.
