Can i use this product for ceramic tile?

No, SoundBuffer cannot be used for ceramic tile. AbsorbaSound is a great product that will work excellent for ceramic tile. https://www.homedepot.com/p/AbsorbaSound-4-ft-x-50-ft-x-0-08-in-Recycled-Rubber-Underlayment-for-All-Flooring-MCR108S-2MM/311043182

This product will not prevent moisture from concrete. Yes, you can put this product on top 6-mil vapor barrier as 6-mil vapor will block all moisture.

Great product. Used in our RV. Hoping the buffer will insulate the floors a bit, from cold and heat coming in. One room gets so hot in summer and cold in winter. May not help, but still put in. Went down easy.

Our condo board requires the underlayment to be 50 on the Impact Insulation Class (IIC) rating. ...

Is it good for peel and stick vinyl tile

Asked by Amblessed April 26, 2018

Answers

I've att'd a scan of the instructions. It refers to Luxury Vinyl Tile, adhesive, & trowel. I don't see any mention of "peel & stick". So I wouldn't think it's use is suggested with this underlayment.

This turned out to be a little thinner than I thought it would be...didn't see it in person before I ordered it...could have been just a little thicker for my purposes. Wanted thinner to not add extra height to my laminate so it lines up with my adjoining carpeting...this will still work ok. I like that it's latex rubber. Smells like vanilla! (what's up with that?). Lays nice once it flattens out from being rolled. I also like that it has soundproofing qualities, gives it more value. A good, basic underlayment. Also, CRI certified, which is a good credential to have...I looked for that in a carpet cleaning solution recently, & that worked out good for me.

The product come with another underpayment and its comparatively heavy product. Have a good density. It is latex rubber, so while its shipped there have a piece of masking tape and the pull out of type result a portion peel out. But later on I don't have any other issue about quality. Only I have to add another layer of sheet for moisture barrier. Because of I have moisture problem in my floor.

I cannot speak for the sound deadening qualities as my installation was needed to isolate my floating LVP floor from residual adhesive from the previous vinyl tile floor, so I did not rate it the full 5 stars. The product was easy to work with and to tape the seams together. It laid out flat and the new flooring easily laid over it.

amazing MP Global phone conversation and support
I'm waiting for my Sound Buffer underlayment to be delivered. Had some questions about the installation. I'm able to call MP Global directly in one call, 3 rings, a live person on. She connects me with their product expert, no message, a live person again. My questions were answered clearly. I'm just amazed they are able to support customers in this personal way. I can't wait to install my floor with their product.

Did very well with hiding subfloor imperfections. Subfloors are pretty noisy, and sound buffer really did work.
