Designed to embed and fasten electric heating cables, decoupling membranes provide several benefits when installing tiles:
- Prevents tile cracking: Decoupling membranes absorb the movements of the substrate or floor underneath, preventing tension and stress from reaching the tiles. This ensures that the newly laid tiles do not crack or become damaged over time.
- Increases durability: By reducing the stress on the tiles, decoupling membranes increase their overall durability and longevity.
- Improves tile adhesion: Decoupling membranes create a better bond between the tiles and the substrate or floor, improving the adhesion of the tiles.
- Sound reduction: Decoupling membranes also act as sound barriers, reducing noise transmission between floors and rooms.
Overall, using a decoupling membrane when laying tiles can greatly improve the durability and longevity of the tiles while also providing additional benefits such as sound reduction.
