SpiderWeb Uncoupling Mat is a waterproof, vaporproof uncoupling membrane that can be used for crack-suppression in most tile, porcelain or natural stone installations, and can be applied over challenging substrates such as installation over green concrete (young) and single ply 19.2" (49 cm) supported floors. SpiderWeb is designed differently than bonded membranes, with a sacrificial layer of fabric that shears away, or "uncouples", when exposed to excessive substrate movement, absorbing stress and preserving the surface and integrity of the tile. SpiderWeb's mesh layer has reinforced strands which lock mortar into the mat, ensuring strong, reliable installations.
Quality begins from the ground up. Preparing your surface is the most critical task of any tile or stone installation. Custom offers you one source for the needs of virtually any job.
