Floortec™ is a high-performance, durable uncoupling membrane to be installed under any tile installation. Its key features include:

  • Round-shaped mortar columns for maximum load support contributing to “extra heavy” (14 cycles) rating on the Robinson test method (ASTM 627 over 19.2” wood joist structure)
  • “Lay-Flat” technology to minimize curling
  • Translucent to monitor thin-set coverage
  • Textured surface for stronger thin-set adhesion allowing chalk lines to “hold”
  • Round-shaped surface configuration for better overall workability

“Clearly, the round-shaped mortar columns make the difference with this product,” stated Greg Gelston, President of Profilitec. “Think of columns in a building. They are most notably circular​,​ which by the natural laws of physics​,​ will evenly distribute the entire load’s weight versus​ a​ square​ column​.”

The introduction of Floortec™ reinforces the company’s commitment to its ​positioning as the “Choice of the Professional​.​”

Gelston concluded, “We strive to offer the most advanced engineered products, all of which are​intended to solve real-time problems within the industry. Real solutions for real issues.”
