Nuheat Floor Heating & Tile Uncoupling Membrane, 161 sq. ft., AC0105

Nuheat Membrane by Progress Profiles is a tile underlayment membrane that provides uncoupling, waterproofing, and crack isolation properties to the finished tile floor. Nuheat Membrane is specifically designed for use with the Nuheat Cable floor heating system and can eliminate the need for a second layer of backer board or plywood in most heated tile floor installations.

Nuheat Membrane Features

  • Uncoupling/Crack-Isolation - Helps prevent tile breakage by compensating for any horizontal movement between tile and subfloor
  • Vapor Management - Patented design allows air pockets to form between Nuheat Membrane and subfloor to effectively balance the substrate's moisture content
  • Waterproofing - Polyproplene material is entirely waterproof; perimeter, seams, and corners of Nuheat Membrane must be treated with waterproofing tape
  • Load Distribution - Membrane cavities are filled with thinset during installation and serve as support columns for tile floor once thinset has cured

Nuheat Membrane Benefits

  • 25 Year Product Warranty
  • Can be used in place of traditional concrete backer board or plywood for most tile installations
  • Low profile membrane reduces height of finished floor
  • Easy to install - Rolls out flat, saves time and material
  • Cable leads fit into membrane and do not require splicing
  • Allows for even floor heat dissipation with accurate cable spacing

Designed for Use with Nuheat Floor Heating Cable

Nuheat Membrane is specifically designed to hold Nuheat Cable (sold separately); no self-leveling compounds are required.

  • Nuheat cable is thin, durable, and easy to work with
  • Floor heating cable can produce between 10 - 15 watts per sq. ft. depending on how the cable is installed

Installation Tips

  • Modified thinset can be used on both sides of the membrane
  • Glue Nuheat Cable into the membrane with a skim coat of thinset to prevent cable from moving during tile installation
  • Install temperature probe in an open membrane channel 
  • Do NOT install probe on top of heat cable
