Pro Flex Tile Underlayment and Isolation Membrane 270 SF Roll
Color may vary - May come in pink/red or Yellow - all are made in the same factories in Germany or Canada and are identical in design other than color or other minor differences. The yellow version has been tested by the TCNA in the U.S. - and rated heavy commercial with modified thin-set TOP and BOTTOM.
A complete, easy to install
TILE UNDERLAYMENT ISOLATION MEMBRANE for Floor Tile
270 Square Feet - 39.5" x 82 Feet
This tile underlayment isolation membrane may be used with modified or unmodified thinset.
ProVa-Flex is a polypropylene membrane sandwiched between a white polypropylene non-woven fabric on the underside to maximize bonding to the subfloor. It also has an intervoven polypropylene netting material adhered to the top surface to provide mechanical bonding properties as well as enhancing the surface of contact with mortars used. ProVa-Flex is lightweight, flexible, bridges cracks, does not rot and is highly resistant to solutions containing salts, acids, and alkalis, as well as many organic solvents, alcohols and oils. It is highly impervious to steam.
ProVa-Flex is a multi-functional polypropylene membrane used as an underlay for ceramic tiles and natural stone. It acts as an "uncoupling" membrane on all suitable substrates and as a water vapor pressure equalization membrane against dampness in the substrate. ProVa Flex protects against dampness in the substrate and is ready to tile immediately after installation.
ProVa-Flex tile underlay provides a separation layer between tile and substrate, which prevents stress transfer to the tile surface. It neutralizes stresses caused by the deformation or shifting of the substrate. The tile underlay bridges cracks that may develop in the substrate.
Equalizes Vapor Pressure
Air channels beneath the this underlay remain open to allow moisture in the substrate to evaporate. Joint Strip must be used to maintain a continuous barrier.
Polypropylene is impermeable against other building chemicals. It is easier to install and lays out flatter than a tile underlayment made of polyethylene.
Tough yet pliable - to bend around corners and projections without breaking even in low temperatures. ProVa Flex can be cut with a knife or scissors. The unique profile design and inter-woven polypropylene netting material works to increase surface area to provide for a stronger bond between underlay and tile.
