Product Overview

  • Helps increase the life and appearance of your flooring
  • Protects against moisture vapor
  • For use under tile and wood
Aquabar "B" floor and tile underlayment is an extremely effective moisture vapor retarder for use in a variety of interior construction applications. Consisting of two layers of Kraft paper laminated with asphalt, Aquabar "B" is a non-reinforced 30/30/30 duplex type Grade "B" paper. In the battle against interior moisture damage, the best defense is a strong offense. When you block moisture vapor from creeping underneath finish materials or reaching moisture sensitive substrates, you help increase the useful life and appearance of surface finishes. To help win the battle, the Fortifiber Building Systems Group offers Aquabar "B" as inexpensive insurance to reduce moisture-related problems.
  • Ideal underlayment for interior installations of: ceramic, porcelain or stone over cement board, plywood or concrete; and, finished or unfinished wood floors over plywood or concrete
  • Most commonly used beneath wood flooring, ceramic tile and stone veneer or as a membrane on walls, counter tops, and residential showers
  • Sub-floor barrier slows moisture migration and helps prevent buckling, cupping, and cracking
  • An extremely effective moisture vapor retarder for use in a variety of interior construction applications
  • Acts as a slipsheet to minimize dust and reduce noise
  • Meets CA01350 indoor air quality standards
  • 500 sq. ft. roll measuring 3 ft. x 167 ft.

Hello, I plan to use 12mm laminate floor in my basement. I have very low moisture level, and by manufacturer instruction i do not need vapor ret.ard. But, just in case can i place Aquabar on painted with primer cement floor, then underlayment, and on top laminate floor tiles? Thank you for any advice.
Asked by: Konrad
Aquabar is really good stuff. II have used it on two installations - both on wood subfloors. Even in a low moisture environment, concrete slab will release some moisture. Myself, I would use a moisture barrier like PVC- plastic in a basement-over-concrete installation.

My guess is, you are looking for a more affordable alternative to the Tavy membrane process. I don't blame you. My guess is it would work.

I have concrete floor, lay the fortifiber underlayment then thinset then tile? Is this how to use it?

Asked by: Edy
The Aquabar "B" underlayment is typical used for wood flooring installations. Best is to use an Elastomeric Membrane waterproofing and crack prevention on a concrete sub floor, like RedGard.

Will this product work well in my bathroom for an underlayment over plywood for tile?

We used it as a recommended under layment for the Eucalyptus flooring we installed. This floor was glued & nailed. We really don't think the paper layer will adhere to the tile to make it a serviceable surface without problems.
