Product Overview

  • Waterproof and easy to install
  • Indoor and outdoor safe
  • For use on stone or ceramic tile
Ditra is a polyethylene uncoupling underlayment with a grid structure of square cutback cavities and an anchoring fleece laminated to the underside. Ditra provides uncoupling through the open rib structure which allows for in-plane movement that effectively neutralizes the differential movement stresses between the substrate and the tile, thus eliminating the major cause of cracking and delaminating of the tiled surface. Ditra provides waterproofing and vapor management. Underlayment for tile.
  • Designed for use with ceramic and stone tile
  • Ideal for interior and exterior tile and stone installations
  • Neutralizes stress that originates in the subfloor to eliminate the main cause of tile cracking
  • Waterproofs and allows moisture in the substrate to evaporate
  • Replaces backboard or a second layer of plywood
  • Polyethylene material
  • 54 sq. ft. roll measuring 3 ft. 3 in. x 16 ft. 5 in.
  • 1/8 in. thick membrane makes transitioning to other surfaces simple
  • Easy installation over a thinset mortar

Questions & Answers

I live in a fifth floor can this be use as insulation also?

I live in a fifth floor can this be use as insulation also?
Asked by: Carlo
No, it is used to decouple the flooring from tile. You can read the installation instructions and spec's on Schluter's website. It will not work as insulation.

Once ditra is installed with wet thinset underneath, can I install tile that same day or does it need to dry?

The manufacturer says that you can install floor tile immediately; I have never done it but they say yes.

can this be used in place of backerboard for shower walls

Asked by: robin
Not recommended. There is another Schluter product called Kerdi which is designed for this purpose.

Ditra 54 sq. ft. 3 ft. 3 in. x 16 ft. 5 in. x 1/8 in. Thick Uncoupling Membrane is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 58.

The product gives too much when walked on and therefore the grout cracks and comes off in chunks. I tried re grouting. Does not work. It will be a large cost to redo. Not happy with this product.

Be careful to follow Schluter's preparation and installation instructions. It is important to use an uncoupling membrane when your installation spans different substrates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product but do your homework I think this is a great way to waterproof and do underlayment in one pass. I don't think you need the roller, a grout float does a good job. Even those funky thick soled flip flops, the wife just skated around. But it does take some work. You need UN modified thinset between the Ditra and the tile AND it uses a lot more than normal, I'd figure almost 50% more thinset than normal. Agree with prior reviews, HD should carry the seaming product and a better UN modifed thinset, Ditra has a branded product now. Time will tell, I've just used exterior plywood in the pas, but this is the first bathroom I've tiled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome product if you do it right I've installed in bathrooms, utility rooms, kitchens and on counter tops. Works excellent. The Versabond Home Depot sells will work between wood substrate and Ditra, but Home Depot does not sell a good unmodified. Custom Blend just doesn't cut it. You must use a premium unmodified mortar between tile and Ditra (no polymer!! it's not supposed to stick to the Ditra!). Mastic is not recommended. All premixes contain polymer. 11/64 trowel is not required, Schluter themselves even say so. I used a 1/4 x 3/16 v-notch trowel that they say is ok to use. Home Depot sells this. You don't need a roller to embed it, i use a grout float and it works just fine, pull up a corner to check for proper coverage. Back butter your ceramics. No one says you can't use it with concrete backer board. The more insurance the better. This is a lifetime floor if you follow Schluters instructions. Their FAQ can help you sort through who is giving you the right information.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff I used it on my first tile project, and I will use it again. It was extremely easy to work. Would recommend it to anyone to use. On a side not, there is a thicker version (Ditra XL) that can be used if trying to match height with something like hardwood flooring. Not sure why HD doesn't offer that as well. Only bit of advice would be to use a little bit more water when mixing the thin-set that goes between the flooring and underside of the Ditra.
