Details

InsulAte has specially designed open cell EVA foam which allows the mortar to lock and bond to it. Creating a bonded crack prevention system that can occur with substrate floor movement. The mat is extremely durable and will withstand repeated stress. The mat will not shrink, absorb moisture or rot. The sound barrier proprietary foam technology offers high impact and sound reduction.

Areas of Use

  • Interior applications
  • Concrete, mortar beds and masonry
  • Wood substrates, gypsum underlayment (minimum 2000 PSI cured)
