Answer: 
Level Quik Latex Primer is not to be used with EasyMat. That primer is for a cement based self leveling product. If you have the Peel & Stick EasyMat than you have to use the Peel & Stick Primer first. Without the primer you will not get a good enough bond. For further information, please contact our technical service department at 800 272-8786 option 2.

I ripped up my old tile flooring and the old 1/2 inch plywood underlayment in my entryway. My subfloor is 5/8 in plywood. I plan to lay 12 in slate tile. Not sure if the easymat is ok by itself without the additional 1/4 or 1/2 in additional plywood underlayment first.

Answer: 
according to the instructions if what you are putting it over is stable and level, you should be able to put this mat down without additional underlayment. I used it on a shower curb and had great results.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good for certain applications...Not so great for others I'm not sure I can recommend EASYMAT. It really depends on your particular job, skill set and most patience and ability to follow instructions. During installation, you must follow the instructions closely to get the best adhesion to the subfloor. This is the key to getting a nice finished product and whether or not you will be happy when you job is done. Apply the primer (peel and stick primer is included) and give it adequate time to dry. It is better work in smaller sections. The tightly wound roll constantly wants to curl. This is definitely a 2 person job. Also, you should know that the factory edges of the mat are not perfect. They may require a little trimming. Be sure to use a roller to get good adhesion. Because.....Once you get the mat sticking to the floor, the remaining installation is very typical Bottom line...this mat is no perfect for all situations. No product is.. you know ..."right tool for the right job." Pros Reduces noise light weight you can install tile as soon as you have it adequately stuck to the floor Con Not as rigid on a floor that has a little give takes patience to get a good adhesion Needs a roller for installation A little bit more expensive than traditional backer board Subfloor should be smooth and level April 27, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible garbage Absolute garbage. Save yourself the time of sanding off the primer and throw it in the trash or better yet do not purchase at all. Installed brand new 3/4" T&G plywood subfloor over existing 1" plank subfloor (after leveling). Cleaned and primed per instructions, waited for it to dry then attempted to install. Rolls do not appear to be cut straight as product would not follow a chalk line. Rolled easymat with a 100# roller after installation, this morning the product was bubbled everywhere. Called tech support for a refund which is supposed to not be an issue. Product peeled up with very little fight, horrific bonding (small dots of adhesive stuck to subfloor). Now I have to sand down my brand new plywood to remove adhesive primer and specs of backing (which smear more than anything). Typical big box store junk. January 29, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Time saver This product is definitely a time saver, since you can begin to lay tile on it as soon as you finish adhering it. What I found was...1- you have to make sure the adhesive primer has tacked properly (30-45 minutes) before installing the mat. 2- your subfloor has to be PERFECTLY LEVEL- any imperfections will show through this mat (no matter how minor). 3- it still takes a little time to install this properly. 4- it is difficult to measure accurately, because it is tightly rolled for sale. Plan on trimming while installing. All in all- a good time saver, makes a weekend project instead of a weeklong project. January 8, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OK for some installations More expensive than conventional underlayment. But, when you add the additional labor, setting compound, tape and screws to conventional underlayment it comes out about the same. Great if you need to keep from raising the floor level. Installation takes practice, so it's best to work with smaller pieces. Not good for subfloors that move, (flex). Grout will crack all the time. Make sure the subfloor is solid and stiff with minimal movement or else you will be forever regrouting. Of course that is true for any underlayment. If the subfloor moves the grout will crack. November 1, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by OMG, I should have listened to my friend who tiles!! I bought this product, not because it was easier to install or faster. We got it to make sure we could tile underneath the dishwasher (which we still were not able to tile all the way under the washer). Anyways I grouted and about a month later is when I really started noticing all the cracks. The are EVERYWHERE. Now I know some can point to human error, but the way the floor is cracked and the fact that when I walk on it it feels like the tiles shift makes me believe it was the matting we put down. Not even a month and my grout looks ancient, it isn't popping out, but there are hairline cracks everywhere that we walk a lot. May 20, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Concept, Good Product for flat surfaces When I saw this product I thought this will be perfect for a repair i need to make on a shower curb. The product did work for what I wanted but not as easier and I expected. My biggest issue with the product was the adhesive was not very strong. I laid it down on the top of the curb and I used the primer that came with it. Even following the instructions it didn't stick very well. I then bent it over the edge to cover the side and that wouldn't stick for more than a second or so. So I ended up having to tack it into place which I was trying to avoid. Now with that said, other then not sticky enough, it is an amazing product. I had to fight the curl from the roll a little but once I had it down, it was a dream to tile over. If i was working on a flat horizontal surface, I would use this product everytime. December 30, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not so good We bought this to tile our bathroom floor. It did not stick well at all. It would be way better if it were sold in flat sheets. Since it is somewhat stiff and comes in rolls it does not want to flatten out very well so it stuck for about a minute before popping up and trying to roll up again. We ended up screwing the edges into the wood subfloor, which worked well and kept it flat. Only time will tell how the tile and grout lines react. December 25, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by horrible product Hard to unroll and cut. Rolled and weighted over night. Small areas bubbled back up. No faith it's going to stay down , ripping it up and going back to Ditra. Total waste of money and time. March 8, 2015
