Product Properties / Benefits:
Flexible, stabilising and isolating underlay sheet with cross- shaped latex-foam studs on the underside. The studs pro- vide an air-layer of approx. 1 mm thickness between the stabilising underlay and the substrate – the underlay serves as the surface for the new, bonded covering. It has an in-herent, stabilising stiffness for good load distribution and Other technical information available on request.
