Decoupling Systems

Waterproof decoupling membranes are designed to neutralise tensions between the substrate and the tiles. The uncoupling membrane helps to prevent stress cracks from transferring through to the finished tiled surface. Some decoupling membranes, like the ones that The London Tile Co Direct stock, can be also used with electric underfloor heating systems. The membrane helps to alleviate increased stress that is caused by thermal movement. The uncoupling membrane absorbs the stress and the air spaces under the membrane allow the residual moisture to gradually escape, preventing cracks from forming in the tiles. Decoupling membranes also allow the heat from the underfloor heating system to be spread evenly across the floor surface, increasing the effectiveness of the heating system.

All the decoupling systems sold on The London Tile Co Direct are suitable for use with electric underfloor heating; for more specific information please refer to the manufacturer's instructions.
