Cutting Edge Tile, Inc owner Carl J. Leonard recently installed ARDEX UI 740™ FLEXBONE® Uncoupling Membrane in a residential laundry room. They used ARDEX AF 207™ Pre-Mixed, Rapid Set Uncoupling Membrane Bonding Adhesive to adhere the FLEXBONE and then waterproofed and taped seams with ARDEX SK MESH™ Reinforcement Fabric for Waterproofing and Crack Isolation. 8″x 24″x 1/2″ Quartzite tiles were placed in a 50% offset pattern with ARDEX X 77™MICROTEC® Fiber Reinforced Tile and Stone Mortar.
When asked about his crew’s experience using FLEXBONE, Carl stated: “We choose Flexbone over other uncoupling underlayments because of the strength, ease of installation and less thinset consumption. There’s substantial less back full with this product. This is a definite benefit to my installations.”
