What To Expect With Schlüter’s New DITRA-HEAT And DITRA-HEAT-DUO Peel & Stick Membranes

What is Peel & Stick?

Our new Peel & Stick membrane is a simple, clean and quick way to install electric underfloor heating with a thin layer of pre-applied pressure sensitive adhesive on the underside.

Can it be used for waterproofing?

DITRA-HEAT-PS/-DUO-PS can serve as a waterproofing layer as long as the joints and connections are sealed with KERDI-KEBA and KERDI-COLL-L.

If waterproofing certification is required, we recommend using the original Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT/-HEAT-DUO which is bonded to the substrate with cementitious tile adhesive.

What substrates is DITRA-HEAT-PS/-DUO-PS suitable to use on?

The membrane is ideally used with timber and tile backerboard substrates. It is a great solution if you wish to tile on P5 or green chipboard. But it will work with most substrates provided they are rigid, even, load bearing, clean and dust-free. We recommend contacting our technical team on technical@schluter.co.uk if you would like to discuss how it can be used with your specific project.

Do I need to prime the floor first?

Although it is not mandatory to apply a primer, if the condition of the substrate necessitates it, a primer suitable for the substrate should be used.

Can it be used outside?

DITRA-HEAT-PS/-DUO-PS is exclusively intended for installation on floors in interior areas.

Can it be used on walls?

No. DITRA-HEAT-PS/-DUO-PS should only be used for installation on floor areas.

What format does it come in?

Peel & Stick is available in rolls and mats. To determine which format and how much you require, please get in touch with us.

How thick is it?

The product thickness, including the stud structure, is approx. 5.5 mm (DITRA-HEAT-PS) or approx. 7.6 mm (DITRA-HEAT-DUO-PS).

Is it quicker to install?

As no adhesive is required to fix the membrane to the substrate, it is much quicker to install. This also has material savings as well.

What cables should I use?

You can use the same cables and thermostats as the original DITRA-HEAT and DITRA-HEAT-DUO.

Are the original versions still available?

Yes, we have no plans to discontinue the original DITRA-HEAT or DITRA-HEAT-DUO. The new Peel & Stick variants have been designed in response to feedback we have received from installers. By offering both the original and new Peel & Stick, we can provide our customers with more choice and flexibility, dependent on their skills set and job requirements.

Is the removable release film recyclable?

Yes, you can recycle the removal release film with general household recycling.

What if I have placed the membrane in the wrong place or need to reposition it?

Provided no pressure has been applied to the membrane, it can be lifted and repositioned as many times as required. Once pressure has been applied, it will be firmly stuck in its position.

How should it be stored?

DITRA-HEAT-PS and DUO-PS should be stored indoors and away from direct sunlight.

Do you have any samples?

Yes! You can order a sample of DITRA-HEAT-PS/-DUO-PS by contacting our customer service team on sales@schluter.co.uk.
