MEMBRANE is a self-bonding, sheet applied elastomeric membrane.
It consists of a base layer of polymer modified elastomers,
permanently laminated to a unique "stress flex"
fiber sheet. Together they form a single 40 mil (1/16")
high strength self-bonding membrane that is easily applied.
ECB MEMBRANE is designed for use under floor tile surfaces
protection from structural movement. ECB MEMBRANE adheres
permanently to the sub-floor, remains flexible and will
last the life of the flooring surface.
MEMBRANE bridges all existing and future movement of the
sub-floor. The key to ECB's effectiveness is its two component
patent pending design. The elastomeric base layer functions
as a buffer, absorbing the thermal and structural movement
of the sub-floor, while its unique "stress flex"
fiber sheet creates a new flooring surface which will accommodate
most mortars, organic adhesives and epoxy setting materials.
ECB MEMBRANE protects tile from structural movement, live
and dead loads (bounce and reverberation), movement of cracks
and shrinkage (creep). The adhesion and integrity of the
tile floor are preserved by the "anti-fracture"
action of ECB MEMBRANE.

MEMBRANE is cost effective as a sub-floor over wood, concrete,
terrazzo, pre-cast panels, light weight concrete, radiant
heated floors, vinyl composition and vinyl asbestos tile,
metal and other existing hard surface flooring, providing
they are structurally sound. ECB MEMBRANE can be used in malls,
airports, commercial buildings, department stores, office
buildings, restaurants, apartments, condominiums, residential
homes or anywhere sub-floor problems threaten the integrity
of the tile floor. Because ECB MEMBRANE is only 40 mil thick
(1/16"), it can be used in new or remodel construction
where height restrictions exist; mud beds, concrete backer
boards, plywood, and other sub-floor systems cannot. ECB MEMBRANE
is also an insulator, helping floors stay warmer, drier and
MEMBRANE is recommended for thin-bed installation of ceramic
tile, quarry tile, marble, pavers, stone, agglomerate tile,
and commercial grade vinyl composition tile and is an effective
vapor barrier under wood and carpet.
