Blanke Permat Tile Underlayment 6.5 sq ft Single Sheets
Blanke Permat Tile Underlayment 6.5 sq. ft. Single Sheet
Innovative uncoupling underlayment that offers all the labor saving benefits of the old plastic roll systems. Blanke PERMAT also adds support to wood substrates thereby reducing deflection and provides greater compression and tensile strength than plastic roll products. The Blanke PERMAT is stable to walk on during installation and does not require additional curing time when installing porcelain with latex modified thinset.
Instructions for Installing Permat
Can I use the Blanke Permat on outdoor applications?
by Stanley H. 10/1/2015 1:50:50 pm
The Blanke Permat uncoupling sheet is not rated for outdoor use.
When using Permat by Blanke is there a particular thinset I should use when installing porcelain?
by Dwight S. 10/2/2015 3:14:39 pm
Latex modified thinset is recommended for porcelain tile installation. Using the Blanke Permat does not extend cure times for the mortar under the tile.
Can I use the Permat over an existing concrete floor?
by Joseph R 10/6/2015 8:06:17 pm
Yes, be sure to use a modified thinset mortar when installing this product. Permat is suitable substrate for going over concrete slabs.
Are there issues that I should know about setting the Blanke Permat over or below floor warming cable or mats?
by Jacob D. 10/15/2015 12:15:49 pm
Heating system should be installed first then permat. This does not impede the ability to warm the floors. The testing data showed that it took a few seconds to reach target temperature but it also took less energy to maintain the temperature: a wash! Blanke recommends that you bond tile or stone directly to Permat. The strength of Permat ( increase in Point load, compressive, sheer, and tensile) begins to diminish once you get over 3/8 inch between Permat and tile or stone. If the floor is more than 3/8 out of level Blanke suggests you level first.
Can permat be installed over vinyl floors?

Yes the Blanke Permat can be installed over vinyl however please follow all recommended guidelines with the thin set you are using.
Very easy to work with
by Adam G.
On previous jobs, I've used cement board, and I've used the rolls of plastic underlayment from another brand, but this is far easier in the sheet form it comes in. Permat was as thin as any other option, but it adds strength to bond everything together like no other product I've seen. It was worth the expense for the small job I had.
Excellent service and reasonably priced items
by Phil C.
I needed enough Blanke Permat sheets to complete a medium size bathroom floor. Contractors Direct provided the Blanke Permat sheets at a reasonable price and with reasonable shipping charges. The items arrived within a week. I will definitely use Contractors Direct for my future orders.
These are perfect for adding the strength that the substructure needs. I've found Blanke Permat helpful for installing stone tile without having to add another layer of plywood. Easy to install and I've used this product for years.
Fast Delivery; Excellent product for tile substrate
by Jim -
Great product. Very easy to use and much stiffer than Schlueter. I used this because small mosaic tile isn't allowed on Schlueter. Pricey but nice and easy to used. Install tile right after laying underlayment without waiting. Delivery was fast. No problems
