Advances in tile manufacturing in the past few decades have improved the quality and choices available to the consumer. New colors, new materials, larger format, thinner tiles and digital printing have all contributed to a steady growth of the use of tile as a surface. When compared to other flooring options such as carpeting and wood floors, tiles are normally preferred because they are easy to clean, resilient, and hygienic. Unfortunately ceramic tile and natural stone, if not installed properly, are subject to cracking, delamination, and are cold to the touch. Use of electrical floor heating can minimize the cold, but submits the tile assembly to additional stress that can lead to cracking and delamination.

Traditionally most electric floor heating, and anti-fracturing membrane manufacturers have recommended covering the electrical heating cables with a self-leveling cement layer or a thin-set layer followed by an uncoupling crack isolating membrane and then finally installing the tiles. This process needlessly increases time, difficulty, thickness, height differentials, weight, and cost of the overall installation.

2 PROGRESS PROFILES - PRODESO HEAT SYSTEM

The patented PRODESO HEAT SYSTEM by Progress Profiles combines the benefit of an underlayment membrane with the comfort and convenience of electrical floor heating. The Prodeso

Heat Membrane can be installed over the entire subfloor as an uncoupling, crack isolating and waterproofing membrane. The Prodeso Heat Cable is then installed in the areas where heat is desired.

Once the Prodeso Heat Cable is installed you can begin tiling immediately, no waiting is necessary.

PRODESO HEAT MEMBRANE is a polypropylene uncoupling, crack isolation, waterproofing membrane, with rounded square shaped reliefs. These reliefs form channels specially designed to embed and hold the PRODESO HEAT CABLE. PRODESO HEAT MEMBRANE has a polypropylene thermo welded woven underneath to increase the bond between the subfloor and the membrane.

PRODESO HEAT MEMBRANE ADVANTAGES

Uncoupling: PRODESO HEAT MEMBRANE compensates for the longitudinal movement between the subfloor and the tile preventing breakage and making it possible to install underfloor electric heating even on problematic substrates such as wood and cracked substrates.

UNCOUPLING

VAPOUR MANAGEMENT

Vapor Management: PRODESO HEAT MEMBRANE unique and patented design allows for air pockets to form between the subfloor and the membrane itself. Excess moisture from the substrate will find its way to these air pockets and create a vapor cycle. This vapor cycle will balance the vapor content of the substrate, protecting the tile from potential damage and making it possible to install underfloor electric heating even on substrates that are not perfectly cured or are moisture sensitive such as wood, concrete, and gypsum based subfloors.

WATERPROOFING

LOAD DISTRIBUTION

Waterproofing: PRODESO HEAT MEMBRANE is a

Polypropylene membrane and as such is naturally waterproof. For indoor installations in areas that are prone to water damage such as bathrooms and kitchens, the perimeter, corners, and seams of the PRODESO HEAT MEMBRANE need to be waterproofed utilizing PROBAND 150/250 waterproofing foil tape (doublesided Polypropylene foil tape) and

Unmodified Thin-Set ANSI

A118.1

Load distribution: PRODESO HEAT MEMBRANE unique and patented designs allows loads to be evenly distributed from the tile covering to the subfloor. Each rounded square relief has a central cavity shaped like an inverted pyramid. When filled with thin-set this inverted pyramid becomes an incompressible structure.

These cavities act like pillars in a building support structure, evenly distributing and transferring the load from the tile floor to the subfloor below.

Electrical Floor Heating cables need to be installed by qualified and licensed installers in accordance with this manual PLUS local and national codes. ALL electrical connection need to be executed by a licensed electrician in accordance with local and national codes.

PROGRESS PROFILES - PRODESO HEAT SYSTEM 3

The benefit of underfloor heating systems have been known for many years but the PRODESO HEAT SYSTEM has additional advantages:

PRODESO HEAT MEMBRANE uncoupling properties make it possible to install under-tile electrical heat over plywood and other problematic subfloors.

• Thanks to the thinness of the PRODESO HEAT MEMBRANE (5.5mm

/ 1/4 inch) it’s the ideal choice when the new tile floor meets an existing surface and height difference is a concern.

• The lightweight system assembly makes it the perfect choice when the load limits of the subfloor are a concern.

• Low thermal inertia guarantees the heat is rapidly and efficiently transferred to the tiles above for immediate warmth and comfort.

• Being able to customize the exact area where to install the heating cable optimizes your comfort while minimizing the overall cost.

• Drastic savings in installation time, effort and cost, combined with the comfort of electric radiant heat makes the PRODESO HEAT SYSTEM the obvious choice for any new or remodeling project.

PRODESO HEAT SYSTEM is durable and requires NO maintenance.

Wood

Wood subfloor considerations and installation details

Wood and its derivatives are commonly used in today’s construction. All wood materials expand, contract, bend, and flex with changes in temperature, humidity, and load in the surrounding environment. These deformations can be seasonal or due to an isolated incident such as a plumbing accident, and will naturally occur over the life of a building structure.

PRODESO HEAT SYSTEM properties provide a solution for these challenges.

PRODESO HEAT MEMBRANE will compensate for relative longitudinal movement between the

Sub-floor and the tiles eliminating the major cause of tile cracking and delamination making it possible to install underfloor electric heating on wood substrates. PRODESO HEAT MEMBRANE eliminates the need for the second layer of Plywood with the exception of Natural Stone tile installations.

Wood is particular sensitive to relative moisture changes in their environment.

PRODESO HEAT

MEMBRANE unique and patented design allows for air pockets to form between the subfloor and the membrane itself. These air pockets allow for a vapor cycle to form and balance the vapor content of the subfloor assembly, increasing the mechanical and structural property of the wood subfloor.

Wood structures are particularly sensitive to variation in humidity in their environment.

PRODESO HEAT

MEMBRANE is made of polypropylene, a completely waterproof substance, that will protect the wood subfloor from water damages to ensure a long lasting installation. For areas prone to flood please follow the waterproofing instructions on page 17.

PRODESO HEAT MEMBRANE unique and patented designs allows loads to be evenly distributed from the tile covering to the subfloor. Each rounded square relief has a central cavity shaped like an inverted pyramid. When filled with thin-set this inverted pyramid becomes an incompressible structure. These cavities act like pillars in a building support structure, evenly distributing and transferring the load from the tile floor to the subfloor below.

PRODESO HEAT MEMBRANE

The uncoupling membrane is laid directly over the entire surface intended for tile installation. The heating cable is then installed in the areas where heat is desired using the channels formed between the rounded square reliefs. It’s NOT necessary to use self-leveling cement to cover and protect the wire before starting tile installation. This results in significant savings of material, time, cost and overall weight. Tile installation can start immediately after installing the heated cable.

Gypsum based underlayment or more properly anhydrite based substrate present many advantages, but also a few challenges to the tile installer. CaSO4 calcium sulfate is the component of anhydrite based underlayment and when in contact with water could lead to the formation of ettringite (hydrate calcium aluminium sulfate), which could cause an increase in volume. Anhydrite based underlayment need to be waterproofed if any exposure to water or moisture throughout the life of the installation is possible. Please follow underlayment manufacture direction for proper preparation and primer application before fixing PRODESO HEAT MEMBRANE to the anhydrite based underlayment.

Waterproofing - Movement/Expansion joints

Waterproofing

Tile surfaces (Ceramic and Natural Stone) are preferred and chosen because of their Beauty, Color, Design, Finish, and Texture. Tile surfaces are used for both floor and walls in a variety of project from residential, commercial, hospitality, institutional, health care and industrial. The use of tile has become so extensive that tile installers find themselves facing new challenge every day. Water penetration can cause extensive damages to the tile assembly itself as well the subfloor and the floors underneath the tile assemblies. Waterproofing is required under and around tubs and showers. It’s also recommended to waterproof tile assemblies that can possibly be exposed to considerable amount of water because of flooding.

Waterproofing the tile assembly is cheaper and safer than repairing water damages.

PRODESO HEAT MEMBRANE, is a Polypropylene membrane and as such is naturally waterproof. For indoor installations in areas that are prone to water damage, the corners and seams of the PRODESO HEAT MEMBRANE need to be waterproofed utilizing PROBAND 150/250 waterproofing foil tape (doublesided Polypropylene foil tape) and Unmodified Thin-Set ANSI A118.1.

Movement/Expansion joints

Any tile surface assembly cross section is made of several different materials, Tiles,

Wood, Screw, Cement, Anhydrite, Adhesives, Beams and more. All these different materials contract and expand in different ways when temperature, moisture and load change, causing stress in the overall tile assembly and ultimately cracks and possibly delamination of the tiles. Ceramic and Natural Stone Tiles are rigid and are not capable to compensate for movements. An expansion/movement joint is the part of the assembly designed to absorb the stress on the assembly by allowing movement.

PRODESO HEAT MEMBRANE does NOT eliminate the need for expansion/ movement joints, including perimeter joints, within the tiled surface. Movement joints must be installed in accordance with industry standards and norms TCNA EJ171, and

TTMAC 301 MJ.

Expansion/Movement Joint Placement

• Perimeter Joint need to be installed around the entire installation perimeter.

• Surface Joint: 16’-20’ (4.9meters - 6.1meter) in both direction.

Reduce separation by 25% if exposed to direct sunlight, heating cable or moisture.

• Surface Joint near any structural element (columns, beams, stairways), doorways.

• Structural Joint when 2 separate supporting structure meet under the tile

or the underlayment.

• Areas enclosed within joint should be a rectangle with ratio between each dimension

not to exceed 1: 1.5.

PRODESO HEAT CABLE tests

For other heating cable manufacturers please follow each specific manufacture testing procedures.

Before installing the electric heating cable you need to perform a series of tests, to ensure that the heating cable is working and will performed as specified by the manufacturer. These tests must be repeated after installation of the cable and again after installation of the flooring. This is to ensure that the electrical heating cables has not been damaged during the installation.

To run the tests you need to have a multimeter and a megohmmeter.

Test 1: Electric heating cable resistance measurement

To measure the electrical resistance of the heating cable, you must connect a multimeter to its two power leads and set it for resistance measurement. If the measured resistance in ohms varies significantly (over 10%) from the resistance value printed on the spool, it may mean that:

a) the cable is damaged

b) the measuring instrument is not set or set incorrectly

The value of resistance in ohms measured must be logged in the “Test Log “(page 22).

Test 2: Continuity between the ground cable and the two conductors

The two power leads are separated from the ground cable by an insulator that prevents any contact with them. To verify that there is no contact between the ground cable and the two conductors, you must perform a continuity test; using a multimeter set to the function for continuity, connect the ground cable to a conductor. The measured value must be recorded in the “Test Log

“(page 22).

Test 3: Insulation resistance Measurement between power leads and ground cable

This test is designed to detect very small “holes” in the insulating layer that separates the power leads from the ground cable.

These small holes are often not detected during the continuity test because they are not necessarily short circuits between the cable conductors and ground cable. Although these holes are very small, they may cause current leakage to ground, which detected by the ground fault circuit interrupter, located in the thermostat or panel mount, thus disabling the floor heating system.

To measure the insulation resistance between the power leads and the ground cable, you must connect a megohmmeter, calibrated to 1000 V, to a cable conductor and ground cable. If there is no current leakage, insulation resistance between the power leads and the ground cable must be equal to or greater than 1 Gigaohms (1 Gigaohms = 1 G ohms = 1000 M ohms =

1000 Mega ohms). The measured value must be logged in the “Test Log” (page 22).

Floor temperature sensor testing

Connect a multimeter, calibrated to 10 K Ω + / - 2 set for current reading, to the two conductors of the floor temperature sensor and measure its resistance at room temperature. The resistance of the floor temperature sensor varies depending on the ambient temperature in an inversely proportional way or the lower the temperature, the greater the resistance of the floor temperature sensor. Record the value of the testing obtained in the “ Test Log” , making sure is in compliance with the values indicated in this manual (page 22).

Be careful not to damage the cables, particularly during installation.

Install the floor temperature sensors exactly in the center between two cables and at a distance of at least 2 ft (60cm) from the wall.

Do not cross sensor cables with heating cables.

It is recommended to install a second temperature sensor as a backup in case the primary fails throughout the life of the installation.

Record the exact position of the sensors.

After installation of heating cables, repeat all the tests and record the values obtained in the

“Test Log” (page 22).

Warnings:

• During installation of the heating cables,

leave space for the placement of the floor

temperature sensors.

• The maximum length of a straight line run

for each individual path is 3 m - 9 ft.

• The cable must be installed at a minimum

distance of 20 cm - 8 in from other heat

sources (fireplaces) and 15 cm - 6 in from

waist drains.

NEVER exceed 15 watts per square foot NEVER cross heating cables

Warning: Be careful while applying the adhesive on the membrane not to damage the heating cable with the flat/notched trowel.

Mortar Required for fixing Tile to PRODESO HEAT MEMBRANE.

50lbs (22.70Kg) for 40/50 ft2 (3.7 m2 / 4.6 m2) using 1/4” x 3/8” (6 mm x 10 mm) square or U-Notched trowel

50lbs (22.70Kg) for 30/40 ft2 (2.8 f2/ 3.7m2) using .” X .” (12.5mmX12.5mm ) square or U-Notched trowel.

1 2

Tiles can be immediately laid after the installation of the heating cables is completed. Using the flat side of the trowel fill with Unmodified thin set mortar (ANSI A118.1) the cavities of the membrane. Apply additional of the same mortar with a notched trowel over according to the tile size.

Carefully lay the tiles and press them on the layer of adhesive. If a layer of skin has formed, remove it and apply it again.

Occasionally remove and check some tiles, to ensure full back coverage.

Warning:

Full back coverage may vary depending on the consistency of the adhesive, the angle of inclination of the notched trowel and the flatness of the substrate. If full back coverage is not achieved, remove the tile and apply new adhesive paying attention to the consistency of the Thin set and its application. In case of large format tiles 12”12” and larger is recommended to back butter each tile before laying them.

After laying the tiles, repeat all the tests and record the values obtained in the “Test Log”

(page 22).
