Durabase Membranes

De-coupling and separation membranes are growing in popularity. They allow the fast track application of a finishing floor surface onto subfloors that would previously require considerable time before they achieved a workable state.

Dural UK offer three types of Durabase Membrane:

– DURABASE CI+ Matting
– DURABASE WP Matting
– DURABASE DD Matting


Durabase Matting Profile
DURABASE CI+ Matting
Polypropylene yellow
Width 100 cm
Height 3 mm
CI+ Matting provides the maximum protection from movement in subfloors preventing cracks etc being transmitted into the finishing material.It also provides a waterproof membrane protecting substrates from water ingress. The maximum protection can be achieved by using a sealing tape between the sections.

The air channels below the membrane allow the dispersion of and remaining moisture in the subfloor. This vapour pressure equalisation feature allows the use of the product over green or uncured screeds.

WP Matting provides a simple method of protecting installations from water penetration. It is easy to “tank” any floor or wall. The membrane also provides a degree of crack isolation as CI+ matting but it must be stressed that the prime purpose of WP is to prevent water damage.Water penetration and its subsequent expansion through freezing can cause damage to hard floor coverings shortening the life of the surface and requiring repairs.

Durabase Matting Profile
DURABASE DD Matting
Polypropylene
Width 100 cm
Height 8 mm (yellow) / 12mm (black)
Durabase DD features a very strong matrix construction which encourages water to pass through the surface covering into the air spaces below the membrane where it drains away harmlessly.The thickness of the surface covering must be strong enough to bear loads placed upon it.
