Schlüter®-DITRA 25

Frequently asked questions

Heated screed

What are the work steps for heating up an in-floor heating system for the first time?

Show answer

The uncoupling membranes Schlüter®-DITRA 25 and Schlüter®-DITRA-DRAIN make it possible to install the mats and tiles on unheated screed. Seven days after the completion of the covering assembly, the screed should then be heated to the required operating temperature in steps of 5°K per day.

The system does not require any conventional functional heating for interface coordination.  Our ceramic thermal comfort floor Schlüter®-BEKOTEC-THERM is a complete system for the construction of heated floors.

Seaming tapes

Is it necessary to use seaming tapes for Schlüter®-DITRA 25 in areas without exposure to moisture?

Show answer

No, seaming tapes are not required in areas without exposure to moisture. One exception may be the installation of moisture-sensitive natural stone on green substrates. In this case, seaming tapes would be used with Schlüter®-DITRA 25 to prevent any moisture from the screed to permeate the natural stone.

Expansion joints

Can I cover expansion joints from the substrate with Schlüter®-DITRA 25 or Schlüter®-DITRA-DRAIN?

Show answer

No, expansion joints from the substrate always have to be continued.
