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.

on a plywood floor with back board over the plywood, do I need this product ?
Asked by: roundtoit
Yes, without a doubt. The subfloor still moves around, and its that movement which Ditra isolates

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.

Ditra 54 sq. ft. 3 ft. 3 in. x 16 ft. 5 in. x 1/8 in. Thick Uncoupling Membrane is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 80.
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.

We installed Ditra on our concrete slab of a front porch in July of 2017 as a base for tiling. Our pipe-dream was that the tile would not crack or dis-bond during the deep-freeze of Michigan's 6-months of winter. If you're not familiar with Michigan weather, it has the most-extreme temperature swings of any place on the planet; sub-zero in the winter, approaching 100 degrees F on some days in the summer. Our tile has survived the worst that Michigan weather can bring and there has not been a single issue. No cracked grout, no cracked tiles. I am impressed. Follow the instructions as I did, and this product will live up to the claims.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nearly impossible to get modified thinset to stick to sea... Nearly impossible to get modified thinset to stick to sea felt side. Even after trying progressively thinner versions of thin-set.I had to back butter the felt side which. made it difficult to apply and time-consuming.It was also time-consuming to fill the dimples with unmodified thinset on top.

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 1 out of 5 by from Ditra does not stand behind claims. I would never purchase Ditra ever again. I spent almost $7,000 to do my entire house, had some cracking in a powder room, called the Ditra rep and they denied it for several stated reasons: they don't know whether it was installed correctly (Wow, I didn't know they had to be there throughout the entire installation process!); the powder room is roughly 5' x 8' and they said I should have installed expansion joints - are you kidding me, expansion joints in a 5' x 8' residential powder room. By the way, it took me months to actually get a hold of a Ditra rep after leaving repeated messages. He treated me like a criminal from the minute he got to my house - you could tell immediately that they were not going to assist in any way. It does not appear to me that customer service or standing behind their product is a top priority for Dietra. Check out how the Ditra competitors stand behind their product before spending your hard earned $.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ditra or Hardibacker I did two DIY floors in my 100 year old house, one with ditra and one with hardibacker. Both worked. The main difference is Ditra provides more strength against breaking tiles, while hardibacker provides for a flat floor. Ditra mimics the subfloor underneath, while with hardiboard you can really flatten out an irregular subfloor. Thus my ditra floor has held up great despite me using too much Mapei Ultraflex 2 to try and level tiles. Ditra's technology is sound and its width can help you on transitions to other rooms but ditra won't be a big help in flattening out a floor. You can make up some that problem in added or removed thinset, but if that's a big concern go with hardibacker. If your floor is fairly flat, I'd trust the Ditra system.
