UNCOUPLING, WATERPROOFING, VAPOR MANAGEMENT, AND SUPPORT/LOAD DISTRIBUTION
Ceramic and stone tiles are durable, easy
to maintain, and hygienic, representing
the ideal surface coverings. However,
today’s
lightweight
construction
methods can make the installation of
hard surface coverings particularly
challenging. In order to protect the
integrity of the tile assembly, an
underlayment that performs multiple
functions is required.
Application and Function
6.1 Schluter®-DITRA and 6.1 Schluter®DITRA-XL are polyethylene membranes with
a grid structure of square cavities, each cut
back in a dovetail configuration, and an
anchoring fleece laminated to the underside.
The anchoring fleece is embedded in thinset mortar to provide a mechanical bond to
the substrate. Tile is installed over DITRA or
DITRA-XL using the thin-bed method in such
a way that the mortar becomes mechanically
anchored in the square, cutback cavities of
the matting.
Designed specifically for ceramic tile
and
dimension
stone
installations,
DITRA and DITRA-XL serve as an
uncoupling
layer,
waterproofing
membrane, and vapor management
layer that accommodates moisture
from beneath the tile covering. Further,
DITRA and DITRA-XL perform all these
functions while still providing adequate
support/load distribution for the tile
covering.
The combination of these
four essential functions allows for the
successful installation of tile over a wide
range of substrates, including plywood/ OSB,
concrete, gypsum, heated floors, etc.
DITRA is 1/8" (3 mm) thick, which
minimizes tile assembly thickness and
reduces transitions to lower surface
coverings (e.g., carpet, engineered wood,
H = 1/8" - 3 mm
H = 5/16" - 7 mm
6.1 Schluter®-DITRA
6.1 Schluter®-DITRA-XL
and vinyl). DITRA allows for ceramic tile
application over single-layer plywood or
OSB subfloors on joists spaced up to
19.2" (488 mm) o.c. DITRA-XL is 5/16"
(7 mm) thick, which permits even
transitions between tile and 3/4"-thick
hardwood flooring. DITRA-XL allows for
ceramic tile application over single-layer
plywood or OSB subfloors on joists spaced
up to 24" (610 mm) o.c.
Uncoupling
Tile has been successfully installed for
thousands of years by incorporating
an uncoupling layer, or forgiving shear
interface, within the tile assembly.
DITRA and DITRA-XL provide uncoupling
through its open rib structure, which allows for
in-plane movement that effectively neutralizes
the differential movement stresses between
U N C O U P LI N G MEM B R ANE S
the substrate and the tile, thus eliminating the
major cause of cracking and delaminating of
the tiled surface.
Waterproofing
DITRA and DITRA-XL provide reliable
waterproofing in interior and exterior
applications. Its polyethylene composition
protects the substrate from moisture
penetration, which is particularly important
in today’s building environment where most
substrates are moisture-sensitive.
Vapor management
The distinguishing feature of DITRA and DITRAXL is the existence of free space created by the
configured channels on the underside of the
matting. The free space provides a route for
excess moisture and vapor to escape from the
substrate that could otherwise cause damage
to the tile layer above. Thus, DITRA and DITRAXL effectively manages moisture beneath the
tile covering.
Support/load distribution
When placed on a solid foundation,
columns or pillars can support tremendous
loads. The same physical principle applies
to DITRA and DITRA-XL installations.
Column-like mortar structures are formed
in the cutback cavities of the matting.
Loads are transferred from the tile covering
through these column-like mortar structures
to the substrate. Since the matting is
virtually incompressible within the tile
assembly, the advantages of uncoupling
are achieved without sacrificing point load
distribution capabilities. The ability of DITRA
and DITRA-XL installations to support and
distribute heavy loads while preserving the
integrity of the tiled surface has been verified
through extensive laboratory and field testing,
including applications exposed to vehicular
traffic.
Material Properties and
Areas of Application
DITRA and DITRA-XL are manufactured using
high-density polyethylene (HDPE), which
does not rot and is inert, non-toxic, and
physiologically safe. The material is highly
resistant to solutions containing salts, acids,
and alkalis, as well as many organic solvents,
alcohols, and oils. Resistance to specific
stresses can be provided if concentration,
temperature, and exposure time are known.
2
DITRA and DITRA-XL are waterproof and
minimize the transmission of vapor (water
vapor permeance of DITRA is 0.006 perms
per ASTM E96).
DITRA and DITRA-XL meet the American
National Standard for Load Bearing,
Bonded, Waterproof Membranes for ThinSet Ceramic Tile and Dimension Stone
Installations (ANSI A118.10), are listed by
cUPC®, and are evaluated by ICC-ES (see
Report Nos. ESR-2467 and PMG-1204).

Links to the listing and report can also be
accessed at www.schluter.com.
DITRA and DITRA-XL were evaluated
according to the "Standard Method for the
Testing and Evaluation of Volatile Organic
Chemical Emissions from Indoor Sources
Using Environmental Chambers, Version
1.1" for California Specification 01350 and
found to comply with the VOC requirements.
California Specification 01350 is referenced
by various green building standards and
rating systems.
Note: Due to air space within the assembly,
tile coverings installed over DITRA or DITRAXL may have a hollow sound when they are
walked upon with hard shoes or tapped with
a hard object.

Installation
of
the
Schluter ®-DITRA
Handbook and a step-by-step installation
video. To download a PDF version of the
Handbook or to view the installation video
online, please visit www.schluter.com. All
substrates must be clean, even, and load
bearing. Bond-inhibiting surfaces must be
removed prior to the application of DITRA
and DITRA-XL.
Note: Type, thickness, and format of the tile
or stone surface covering must be suitable
for the intended application. Minimum tile
format is 2" x 2" (5 x 5 cm).
Wood
All wood materials, including OSB, plywood,
and framing members, are subject to
expansion, contraction, bending, and deflection
as a result of changes in moisture content
and loading. Further, these deformations
fluctuate over the life of the building structure.
DITRA
and
DITRA-XL’s
uncoupling
function protects the ceramic or stone
tile covering from the aforementioned
deformations by neutralizing the differential
movement stresses between the wood
structure and the tile, thus eliminating the
major cause of cracking and delaminating
of the tiled surface.
Therefore, DITRA
and DITRA-XL can replace a second layer
of plywood in most applications. Since
the uncoupling function of the matting is
based on its geometric configuration, the
increased thickness of DITRA-XL results in
increased uncoupling capacity. Thus, DITRAXL is optimized for tile installation over
bending and deflecting substrates such as
plywood and OSB, including applications
over single-layer plywood/OSB subfloors on
joists spaced at 24" (610 mm) o.c.
Wood continually absorbs and releases
moisture.
The free space beneath
DITRA and DITRA-XL allows the wood
to breathe and provides a route for any
residual moisture in the wood substrate
to escape.
Since DITRA and DITRA-XL is virtually
incompressible within the tile assembly,
the advantages of uncoupling are
achieved without sacrificing point load
distribution capabilities.
Industry standard guidelines referencing
uncoupling membranes over wood
substrates include methods F147 and F148
in the TCNA Handbook for Ceramic, Glass
and Stone Tile Installation and method 313F
(Detail D) in the Terrazzo, Tile and Marble
Association of Canada (TTMAC) Specification
Guide 09 30 00 Tile Installation Manual.
Note: DITRA and DITRA-XL may be installed
over existing vinyl floors (no cushioned or
perimeter bonded vinyl). However, various
steps must be taken to ensure a successful
installation. Please refer to the Schluter®-DITRA
Installation Handbook for details.
Concrete
There are various challenges associated with
the installation of hard surface coverings on
concrete substrates. To begin, the coefficient
of thermal expansion of concrete is close
to twice that of ceramic tile. Additionally,
tile contractors are often expected to install
tile over young concrete (concrete cured
less than 28 days). However, rigid surface
coverings installed over young concrete
are susceptible to damage as a result of
shrinkage during curing.
Pre-stressed/
post-tensioned concrete slabs are also
U NCOUPLING ME M BRA N E S
commonplace in today’s construction
environment.
Although pre-stressing is
used to help control deflections in concrete
structures, these slabs are still subject to
deformations caused by changes in
moisture, temperature, and loading. Many
concrete slabs on or below grade are
subject to moisture migration, which can
be problematic. Furthermore, these
structures
experience
the
same
deformations as stated above.
DITRA and DITRA-XL’s uncoupling function
protects the ceramic or stone tile covering
by neutralizing the differential movement
stresses between the concrete substrate
and the tile, thus eliminating the major cause
of cracking and delaminating of the tiled
surface.
DITRA and DITRA-XL’s waterproofing ability
not only protects the substrate from moisture
and harmful substances, it also slows the
drying of fresh concrete, thus reducing the
chances of cracking and curling.
The free space beneath the DITRA and DITRAXL matting provides a route for any residual
moisture in the concrete slab to escape. This
allows the installation of DITRA and DITRAXL and the tile covering as soon as the slab
can be walked upon. Vapor management is
also essential for slabs subject to moisture
migration.
Since DITRA and DITRA-XL is virtually
incompressible within the tile assembly,
the advantages of uncoupling are achieved
without sacrificing point load distribution
capabilities.
This allows DITRA and
DITRA-XL to be installed in commercial and
industrial applications exposed to heavy
vehicular traffic, provided the type, format,
and thickness of the tile are appropriate for
the application.
Industry standard guidelines referencing
uncoupling membranes over concrete
substrates include method F128 in the TCNA
Handbook for Ceramic, Glass and Stone Tile
Installation and method 311F (Details A, C and
D) in the Terrazzo, Tile and Marble Association
of Canada (TTMAC) Specification Guide
09 30 00 Tile Installation Manual.
Gypsum
Bonding ceramic or stone tiles directly
to gypsum concrete substrates is
generally considered questionable or not
recommended. The challenges associated
with gypsum-based underlayments include
the requirement of an extended drying period
before installing tile and continued sensitivity
to the reintroduction of moisture throughout
the life of the installation. In addition, since
the coefficient of thermal expansion of
gypsum concrete is substantially greater
than that of ceramic tile, shear stresses
caused by temperature fluctuations can
result in delamination or cracking of the
tile covering. This is particularly important
when gypsum concrete is used as a
thermal mass for radiant heated floors.
With the increasing popularity of radiant
heated floors, which typically utilize gypsum
concrete, tile installers need a reliable
installation system to address these issues.
DITRA and DITRA-XL’s uncoupling function
protects the ceramic or stone tile covering
by neutralizing the differential movement
stresses between the gypsum concrete
substrate and the tile, thus eliminating the
major cause of cracking and delaminating of
the tiled surface.
DITRA and DITRA-XL’s waterproofing
function prevents the reintroduction of
moisture to gypsum concrete underlayments,
which, if not prevented, could significantly
compromise
performance
of
the
underlayment and lead to damage of the
tiled surface. The residual moisture in
gypsum concrete is allowed to escape
through the air channels on the underside
of the matting. This is particularly important
since gypsum concrete must dry in order to
gain strength.
Since DITRA and DITRA-XL is virtually
incompressible within the tile assembly,
the advantages of uncoupling are achieved
without sacrificing point load distribution
capabilities.
Industry standard guidelines referencing
uncoupling membranes over gypsum
substrates include methods F180 and F200
in the TCNA Handbook for Ceramic, Glass
and Stone Tile Installation and method 314F
(Details B and F) in the Terrazzo, Tile and Marble
Association
of
Canada
(TTMAC)
Specification Guide 09 30 00 Tile
Installation Manual.
Heated Floors
Radiant heating is one of the fastest
growing market segments in the
construction industry. Unlike other surface
coverings, the low thermal resistivity of
ceramic and stone tiles allows them to be
used in radiant heat applications without
sacrificing the energy efficiency of the
system.
However, there are inherent
challenges in combining rigid surface
coverings with radiant panel heating systems.
A viable installation system must address
the magnified fluctuations in temperature
that contribute to increased shear stresses
between the heated assembly and the
tile covering. The system must also limit
thermal striping by promoting even heat
distribution and protect the assembly from
moisture, which is particularly important
when gypsum concrete is used as the
thermal mass.
Differential movement
stresses are magnified in radiant-heated
floor applications because of significant
temperature gradients.
DITRA and DITRA-XL’s uncoupling function
protects the ceramic or stone tile covering
by neutralizing the differential movement
stresses between the heated assembly and
the tile, thus eliminating the major cause
of cracking and delaminating of the tiled
surface.
DITRA and DITRA-XL’s waterproofing function
provides simple, effective, and permanent
protection for moisture-sensitive substrates,
such as gypsum concrete and wood, used in
heated floor applications.
The open rib structure of the DITRA and
DITRA-XL matting allows the residual
moisture in the substrate to escape.
This is particularly important for gypsum
concrete since it must dry in order to
gain strength. In addition, the free space
beneath the matting limits thermal striping
by promoting even heat distribution
throughout the assembly.
Industry standard guidelines referencing
uncoupling membranes over heated floors
include methods RH111, RH112, RH122
and RH123 in the TCNA Handbook for
Ceramic, Glass and Stone Tile Installation
and method 314F (Details A, B, C, D, E and F)
in the Terrazzo, Tile and Marble Association of
Canada (TTMAC) Specification Guide 09 30 00
Tile Installation Manual.
Exterior Applications
Ceramic and stone tiles are ideal surface
coverings for the exterior and have been used
successfully for thousands of years. Exterior
balconies and terraces are ideal opportunities
for the installation of tiled surfaces. However,
these installations have typically presented
significant challenges to tile setters. Since
hard surface coverings are rigid by nature
and have different physical properties
compared to virtually every substrate, they
cannot be bonded directly to the substrate,
particularly in exterior applications where they
are exposed to potentially severe climatic
changes and the recurring introduction of
moisture.
DITRA and DITRA-XL’s uncoupling function
protects the ceramic or stone tile covering
by neutralizing the differential movement
stresses between the substrate and the tile,
3
U N C O U P LI N G MEM B R ANE S
thus eliminating the major cause of cracking
and delaminating of the tiled surface. This
is particularly important since these stresses
are magnified by the significant temperature
gradients common in exterior applications.
DITRA and DITRA-XL provides effective
waterproofing that will protect the tile
assembly from the recurring introduction
of water which is common in exterior
applications.
The free space beneath the DITRA and
DITRA-XL matting provides a route for any
residual moisture in the substrate to escape.
This is especially important when installing tile
over a young slab, a concrete slab subject
to moisture migration, or a fresh mortar bed.
Since DITRA and DITRA-XL is virtually
incompressible within the tile assembly,
the advantages of uncoupling are achieved
without sacrificing point load distribution
capabilities.

Thin-set Facts
Schluter®-Systems offers thin-set mortars
designed for use with Schluter® membranes
and boards. All Schluter®-Systems’ thin-set
mortars, including the ALL-SET™ and FASTSET™ modified varieties, can be used to
set tile over Schluter®-DITRA, DITRA-HEAT,
KERDI, KERDI-BOARD, etc. non absorptive
substrates. If Schluter® thin-set mortars are
not used, we require unmodified thin-set
mortar when setting ceramic or porcelain tile
over DITRA-HEAT.
Question: Can ceramic tile, including
porcelain tile, be set on DITRA with
unmodified thin-set mortar?
Answer: YES. In fact, we recommend it.
Here’s why: Portland cement-based
unmodified thin-set mortars are dependent
on the presence of moisture for hydration
in order to gain strength. Since DITRA is
impervious, it does not deprive the mortar
of its moisture. This allows the cement to
4
properly hydrate, resulting in a strong, dense
bond coat. In fact, after the mortar has
reached final set (usually within 24 hours),
unmodified thin-set mortars achieve higher
strengths when cured in continually moist
conditions.
Question: Can ceramic tile, including
porcelain tile, be set on DITRA with latexmodified thin-set mortar?
Answer: In general, we DON’T recommend it.
Here’s why: Latex-modified mortars must
dry for the polymers to coalesce and form
a hard film in order to gain strength. When
sandwiched between two impervious
materials such as DITRA and ceramic tile,
including porcelain tile, drying takes place
very slowly through the open joints in the tile
covering. [According to the TCNA Handbook
for Ceramic, Glass, and Stone Tile Installation,
this drying period can fluctuate from 14
days to over 60 days, depending on the
geographic location, the climatic conditions,
and whether the installation is interior or
exterior]. Therefore, extended cure times
could be required before grouting if using
modified thin-set mortars between DITRA
and ceramic tile, including porcelain tile. If
extended cure times were not observed,
the results could be unpredictable. This is
even more important to consider in exterior
applications that are exposed to rain as there
is the additional concern of latex leaching.
Question: Can Schluter®-ALL-SET and
Schluter ®-FAST-SET modified thin-set
mortars be used to set tile over Schluter
boards and membranes?
Answer: Yes. All Schluter® thin-set mortars,
including the ALL-SET and FAST-SET
modified varieties can be used to set tile
over DITRA, DITRA-HEAT, KERDI, KERDIBOARD, etc. non absorptive substrates.
Question: How is this possible?
Answer: The key is predictability. Schluter
Systems’ modified thin-set mortars have
been specifically formulated to set and
gain strength in a timeframe that fits typical
installation practice, even when sandwiched
between Schluter® membranes or boards
and porcelain tile.
The proportions of
cement, water-retention agents, polymers,
and other components in the mixtures were
balanced to ensure that extended dry times
are not required. This was validated through
both laboratory and practical testing. Now,
the installer can select from either unmodified
or modified thin-set mortar to install tiles
within our systems according to his or her
preference.
Question: Why did Schluter Systems change
its position on thin-set mortar?
Answer: We haven’t changed our position
on thin-set mortar use within our systems.
Developing our own setting materials has
given us the ability to guarantee consistently
positive results. And since we control the
formulas, we can be sure no changes will
be made that have a negative impact on
setting times and strength gain in these
environments.
Question: Does this mean I can use other
manufacturers’ modified thin-set mortars
to install tile over Schluter boards and
membranes?
Answer: No. Our position on thin-set mortar
use within our systems in general has not
changed. We have no control over the
formulation of other manufacturers’ products
and therefore cannot guarantee consistently
positive results with their modified thin-set
mortars.
Question: Can I still use other manufacturers’
unmodified thin-set mortars to install tile over
Schluter boards and membranes?
Answer: Yes. We still warrant the use
of unmodified thin-set mortar meeting
ANSI A118.1 to install tile within our
systems because we have confidence in
the performance of this product category.
This is based on the science of cement
hydration and years of positive testing and
field experience.
Please note, if Schluter® thin-set mortars are
used with Schluter membranes an extended
system warranty is available.
Additional Notes:
Remember,
the
type
of
mortar
used
to
apply
DITRA
or
DITRA-XL depends on the type of
substrate. The mortar must bond to the
substrate and mechanically anchor the
fleece on the underside of the matting.
For example, bonding DITRA and DITRAXL to wood requires latex-modified thin-set
mortar. Additionally, all mortars (modified and
unmodified) have an acceptable temperature
range that must be observed during
application and curing.
Movement Joints
DITRA and DITRA-XL do not eliminate the
need for movement joints, including perimeter
joints, within the tiled surface. Please refer to
the Schluter®-DITRA Installation Handbook
for movement joint placement guidelines.
U NCOUPLING ME M BRA N E S
Wood Underlayment
In some applications, adding a layer of plywood
or OSB before installing DITRA or DITRA-XL
and the ceramic or stone tile covering is
required to reduce deflection and curvature
of the sheathing between the joists. Please
refer to the Schluter®-DITRA Installation
Handbook for plywood/OSB underlayment
installation guidelines.
Exterior Installations
It is recommended that DITRA and
DITRA-XL be allowed to adapt to ambient
air temperature before installing. Further, if
low temperatures are expected during
installation, proper care to ensure sufficient
strength gain of the thin-set mortar must
be taken.

COVERAGE AND CONDITIONS: Subject to the conditions and limitations as stated hereinafter, Schluter-Systems* warrants that Schluter®-DITRA or
Schluter®-DITRA-XL (the “Products”) will meet all composition and performance criteria for a period of ten (10) years from the date of purchase only when the
Products are used and installed in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Schluter®-DITRA Installation Handbook and industry standard guidelines
that are not in conflict with the Handbook in effect at the time of installation. Further, efflorescence is considered to be a natural occurrence with cementitious
materials and is therefore not considered to be a defective condition and is not covered by this warranty. It is the responsibility of the owner/ builder/ installer
to ensure the suitability of all building materials and all associated building materials for the owner’s intended use. It is recommended that the owner consult
with an experienced and professional installer.
RESOLUTION: If the Products fail to meet this warranty, then the owner’s exclusive remedy and the sole obligation of Schluter-Systems, at its election,
shall be to a) reinstall or replace the failed portion of the floor covering assembly or b) pay an amount not to exceed the original square foot cost of
the installation of the floor covering assembly verified to be defective. Floor covering assembly is defined to include all DITRA or DITRA-XL materials,
non-reusable flooring surfaces, and the appropriate setting and grouting materials. Further, due to conditions beyond the control of Schluter-Systems (e.g.,
color and shade availability, discontinuation, normal wear and tear), Schluter-Systems cannot guarantee or warrant an exact match to the specific tile, stone,
or other flooring materials used in the installation. In such events, substantially similar materials may be substituted.
DISCLAIMER: THERE ARE NO WARRANTIES BEYOND THIS EXPRESSED WARRANTY AS STATED ABOVE. ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, REPRESENTATIONS
OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, ARE DISCLAIMED AND EXCLUDED, INCLUDING WARRANTIES, REPRESENTATIONS OR CONDITIONS OF
MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE ARISING BY STATUTE OR OTHERWISE BY LAW OR FROM A COURSE OF DEALING
OR USAGE OF TRADE. SCHLUTER-SYSTEMS EXCLUDES AND IN NO EVENT SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR LOST PROFITS OR ANY OTHER INDIRECT,
SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, ARISING OUT OF OR OTHERWISE CONNECTED TO FAILURE OF THE
PRODUCTS OR FLOORING SYSTEM OF WHICH THEY ARE PART, NOR MISUSE OF THE PRODUCTS OR FLOORING SYSTEM, REGARDLESS OF ANY
STRICT LIABILITY, ACTIVE OR PASSIVE NEGLIGENCE OF SCHLUTER SYSTEMS, AND REGARDLESS OF THE LEGAL THEORY (CONTRACT OR TORT OR
EXTRA-CONTRACTUAL OR OTHER), NOR FROM ACTS OF WAR, TERRORISM, FAULTY AND NEGLIGENT PENETRATION OF THE SYSTEM, FIRES,
EXPLOSIONS, ACTS OF GOD, INTENTIONAL ACTS OF DESTRUCTION OR ANY LOSSES DUE TO STRUCTURAL FAILURE OR OTHER CAUSES
UNRELATED TO THE PRODUCTS OR DELAYS, OR ANY OTHER INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. THIS WARRANTY IS GIVEN IN
LIEU OF ANY OTHER WARRANTY EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED. THE REMEDIES CONTAINED HEREIN ARE THE ONLY REMEDIES AVAILABLE FOR
BREACH OF THIS WARRANTY. THIS LIMITED WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS; SOME STATES AND PROVINCES DO NOT ALLOW
DISCLAIMERS OR OTHER RESTRICTIONS OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO SOME OF THE ABOVE DISCLAIMERS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IF THE
PRODUCTS ARE USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH OTHER SCHLUTER PRODUCTS, A DIFFERENT SCHLUTER WARRANTY MAY APPLY. PLEASE SEE

on behalf of Schluter-Systems relative to the Products or the application of the Products and shall apply to any installation occurring on or after January 1, 2013.
