What are the benefits of ceramic tile underlayment?
We know that regular cement sheeting can be very thick and heavy, making it a challenge to handle and cut to size. BT InstaLay CTU on the other hand is the opposite!
It’s easier to transport, handle and cut, and even more importantly there is no harmful silica dust in the InstaLay product, unlike alternative underlay options which release these particles and have been linked to silicosis.
BT InstaLay is a high strength reinforced PVC sheet with a tile friendly surface facing, simply peel and stick!
It’s also the thinnest ceramic tile underlay in the world, weighing just 800 grams per square metre, meaning that anyone can easily cut through it with ease while shaving hours off their overall tile installation process.
With no noise, no odour, no heavy lifting and no nailing required, BT InstaLay trumps traditional cement sheeting when it comes to kindness on the body.
How do I install ceramic tile underlayment?
Whether it’s covering old vinyl floors or refreshing outdated tiles, BT InstaLay can be used on top of a variety of existing structural floor surfaces to act as a blank canvas for new tiles.
Provided you already have a sturdy base, with BT Instalay, you save on the cost of ripping out old tiles– you simply tile directly over them after laying the system.
Once laid, you can immediately begin the tiling process without waiting for the system to dry. This sheds hours off the application process and gives you more time to focus on styling.
Can I fix ceramic tile underlay if I make a mistake?
Small mistakes are common for DIYers, but BT InstaLay’s incredible self-adhesive properties solve these problems; so, our answer is yes!
This is because BT InstaLay is a really forgiving system. If you don’t get the application right the first time, you can easily remove and reposition it without damaging adhesion.
This is great news for anyone still learning the ropes of tiling by providing the flexibility and time to rework and perfect the final application. These advanced adhesive qualities will also considerably cut the cost of ongoing floor repairs, as removing old flooring won’t cause any damage to existing floor substrates
