Description

  • 5/16" (7mm) thickness; 175 Sf length
  • Quick and easy to install; few tools required and ready to receive tile immediately
  • Features a grid structure of square cutback cavities and an anchoring fleece laminated to the underside
  • Provides uncoupling, waterproofing, vapor management, and heavy load distribution to ensure the durability and integrity of tile installations

Schluter DITRA-XL is specifically designed for ceramic and stone tile installations. DITRA provides uncoupling to prevent cracked tile and grout. Made of polyethylene, DITRA-XL serves as a waterproofing layer, protecting moisture-sensitive substrates, such as plywood/OSB. Free-space on the underside of the matting provides a route for excess moisture and vapor to prevent damage to the tile layer above. DITRA-XL performs all these functions while still providing adequate support/load distribution for the tile covering.

Product Use

Schluter DITRA-XL is a polyethylene membrane with a grid structure of square cavities and an anchoring fleece laminated to the underside. The anchoring fleece is embedded in thin-set mortar to provide a mechanical bond to the substrate. Tile is installed over DITRA-XL using the thin-bed method in such a way that the mortar becomes mechanically anchored in the square, cutback cavities of the matting. Further, DITRA-XL performs all these functions while still providing adequate support/load distribution for the tile covering.DITRA-XL is 5/16” (7 mm)-thick to create an even transition between typical 5/16” (7 mm)-thick tile and 3/4” (19 mm)-thick hardwood flooring. DITRA-XL allows for ceramic tile application over single layer plywood/OSB subfloors on joists spaced at 24” (610 mm). DITRA-XL also provides reliable waterproofing in interior applications.
