In 1987, the first Schlüter-DITRA was developed, designed to enable tile layers to install crack-free top coverings using the thin-bed method.
For technical reasons, it was unfortunately only possible to make optimal use of the decoupling function in two instead of all four directions.
More than 20 years ago, the second version of Schlüter-DITRA was launched, which made it possible to use the decoupling function in all four directions by means of a dimpled structure.
According to the company, the product has proven itself as the market leader for many years thanks to its ease of installation and various benefits in addition to uncoupling, such as waterproofing, crack-bridging and load distribution. With the updated launch, the uncoupling membrane now features enhancements designed to make tile installation even easier.
Air release vents mean filling cavities can be achieved with fewer trowel passes. Pre-formed grooves are included to make straight and precise cutting easier than ever, with enhanced undercuts to enable stronger anchoring of the tile to the membrane.
The company has encouraged anyone who has used the enhanced product to send it a message on Instagram or Facebook with any feedback.
