When renovating existing surfaces, there may be cracks present in the subfloor, this may cause problems for the new flooring during or after it has been laid. Due to the cracks in the subfloors this may cause your flooring to end up being not watertight. Durabase matting like the Durabase CI Matting 30 Meter Roll helps keeps your floor watertight and helps prevent further problems from occurring.
The Durabase CI Matting 30 Meter Roll is very similar to other leading decoupling and waterproofing matting systems.
Durabase CI Matting is made from yellow polythene with a grid texturing nodules and a supporting polypropylene fleece layer on the back.
This combination means the matting is resistant to most chemicals (e.g. salts, acids, alkalis, solvents and oils, although when the locations are seriously at risk from chemicals).
Tile Supply also offers Schluter Ditra Matting as well as the Durabase CI Matting, so whatever your requirements are Tile Supply have the right product for the job. We also offer 24-48 delivery on all our Durabase and Schluter products.

1. Cracks in the subfloor
When renovating older surfaces, cracks can be present in the subfloor, making it impossible to install a safely watertight new tiled surface.
2. Stresses in the subfloor
In the subfloor beneath the flooring it is possible for tensions to appear in materials, depending on the design and the kind of materials they are. These can then be transferred to the tiling and cause cracks to appear in it. For instance, with concrete, even after six months or after many years of expansion and contraction, deformation can occur. Cement and hot screed surfaces can also change after tiles have been laid. Chipboard or plywood too can deform considerably due to absorption of moisture.
3. Damp from the subfloor
When laying on top of anhydrite screed, residual moisture from the screed itself can collect under the tiles and damage the adhesive layer.
