Waterproofing membrane for tub surrounds

From: Schluter Systems

Schluter-Systems aims to simplify the process of waterproofing a tub surround before ceramic tile installation with its Schluter-KERDI-TUBKIT. A roll of Schluter-KERDI, a sheet-applied waterproofing membrane made of pliable polyethylene covered with fleece webbing, is the main kit component and applies to walls using thin-set mortar. A kit also includes KERDI-FIX sealing and bonding compound, a 4 ½-in. mixing valve seal and ¾-in. pip seal. The system is waterproof and vapor tight, so ceramic tile tub surrounds can be constructed using standard drywall.
