Backer-Lite's uncoupling membrane absorbs stress from weather, settling foundations, and daily use.

Its superior design requires only one thinset pass, saving time and materials. Without it, tiles crack, but with the waterproof membrane, your investment stays beautiful for years. Once the subfloor is ready, tiles can be laid immediately. For renovations and new construction, Backer-Lite offers reliable, quick installation. Flooring use only.
