Tiling Talk – What is the difference between anti-fracture and uncoupling?


The next question we get asked a lot
again, is the difference between a crack bridging mat and an uncoupling mat. [Andrew] Okay so often
referred to as anti fracture membranes quite useful actually the
Tile Association have just recently launched a publication regarding
uncoupling systems because there’s a lot of them on the market. Usually anti
fracture mats are thinner they can be less than 1 mm or to a mm.
Uncoupling systems are usually thicker, but one of the main differences
is that ability to uncouple or separate the tile covering from the substrate
below. You can only usually do that with a uncoupling system rather than an anti
fracture mat. you
