Subliner Dry and Flex PRO

„2 in 1 - Sealing and decoupling in a single working step.“

Product information

Subliner Dry & Flex Pro is a self- adhering tile underlayment with anti – fracture properties rated “High Performance” as per ANSI 118.12. The product can protect surface coverings against lateral subfloor movement of up to 3/8”.

Subliner Dry & Flex Pro is made from highly tear-resistant non-woven polypropylene material combined with a proprietary asphaltic pressure sensitive adhesive layer. The product system provides strong sound deadening and reduction properties, perfect bond to tile and stone coverings using any type of modified thinset mortars as per ANSI 118.4.

Subliner Dry & Flex Pro is suitable for fast and clean installations over many wood and concrete subfloors offering a low profile application. The product system primarily protects tile coverings against lateral movement of subfloor and structures. While not recommended for installations subject to permanent water pressure or use as a sealed assembly for water containment, the waterproof properties of the membrane’s asphaltic layers will add much value and protection to a tile installation in areas subject to moisture exposure from heavy duty cleaning.

Subliner Dry & Flex Pro is installed with wedi PRO Primer, suitable for most substrates and subfloors as listed here. It is equipped with a release paper backing and is applied easily and cleanly using a 35 – 50 lb roller to ensure no air bubbles or wrinkles are left.

  • Thin profile tile underlayment installation
  • Sound Reduction built into product
  • High Performance Crack Isolation against up to 3/8” inch lateral subfloor movement
  • 100% mold and mildew proof due to the product ‘s natural composition
  • Easy and clean to cut to size using a utility knife or scissors
  • Fully supports tile and stone across the surface while isolating tile, grout and thinset mortar installation against stresses due to lateral movement
  • Faster and more economic installation due to peel & stick methodology replacing a layer of thinsrt mortar usually applied with common uncoupling membranes
