Daltile Introduces Underlayment that Simplifies Tile Removal
Dallas, TX, August 16, 2018-In its over 250 company-owned sales service centers nationwide, Daltile is now selling Nue Tile DemoFlex underlayment to make removal of installed Daltile ceramic and porcelain tile fast, clean, and easy.
“DemoFlex self describes as an underlayment that makes tile removal ten times faster,” said Jay Samber, senior director of installation product sales, Dal-Tile “Daltile is making this underlayment material available in all of our SSCs nationwide, because using it beneath installed tile turns a two-day demo job into a two-hour easy removal process.”
DemoFlex is essentially a sheet that is easily and inexpensively adhered to the substrate and is immediately ready to install tile atop. When it comes time to repair a single tile or change out an entire tile floor, the individual tile, mortar, and grout can be easily lifted up and come out together in one piece. Removal will not cause damage to backer boards or electric radiant heating systems. Another benefit is the absence of silica dust during tile removal.
DemoFlex underlayment has undergone extensive TCNA testing and received the Extra Heavy Traffic Classification via ASTM C627 Robinson tests, which means it is suitable for heavily trafficked areas, such as shopping malls, airports, or even where forklift or pickup truck traffic is present. DemoFlex has also exceeded TCNA High Performance Crack-Isolation in ANSI A118.12, and is highly cost competitive.
