Product Overview

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.

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.

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.

Yes you can staple this to a wooden subfloor, but not needed. It Can be used for vapor barrier on either a slab concrete or wood subfloor.

This wouldn't work by itself. There would be no good way to securely attach the Aquabar to the linoleum and similarly the Aquabar to the tile. While I have never done it you can supposedly lay tile directly over the linoleum if it is sound (you would have to research this further though as the details really matter for good adhesion).

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.

Can I put this directly over my bahroom wooden subfloor, then thinset, backboard, then tile?

Yes , over your subfloor however the thinset doesn’t go over this . Thinset is what is used to adhere the tile to the backer board.

Can this be used with wood laminate flooring?

Asked by Debarto March 21, 2015

Answers

Laminate flooring manufacturers usually require a cushioning pad under their floating flooring to transition subfloor irregularities, stop moisture vapor and/or deaden sound. Aquabar is not a pad, neither is roofing felt. Aquabar is a Vapor retarder which will not trap moisture for use under nail down wood floors.

Great product
Used this product on top of plywood. This priduct made laying the flooring very easy. Stayed in place once it was rolled onto the plywood. Did not use anything to hold in place. I will use throughout the whole house. I will recommend this product.

Worked great! Use under Bamboo hardwood, just rolled out and cut. Did not staple, just put hardwood down right on top. Also used it to put under hardwood and tread nose that I was gluing to make my own hardwood stair treads. The Aquabar kept the glue squeeze out from sticking to the plywood that I was making my stair tread on.

This product is great in that it provides the necessary vapor protection when installing wood floors in rooms over unfinished spaces (in my case, the living room over the basement). It is an product approved by the NWFA as a underlayment for wood and tile. This is a much cleaner product to user over asphalt / felt paper, as the asphalt material is sandwiched in between to layers of kraft paper. In addition, rosin paper and felt paper are no longer recommended underlayments. A penny more per square foot compared to rosin paper. Product was shipped faster than the estimated delivery. Installation is a breeze, especially with the markings showing your where to overlap adjacent sheets (min 4"). No need to attach the paper to the subfloor, as it will be held in place with the nails or staples holding down the wood floor. I just did one line of staples near the middle to hold the paper in place.
