Rapid-fit Mapeheat Membrane Maxi joins Mapei range

Mapei has introduced new Mapeheat Membrane Maxi – a waterproofing, uncoupling anti-fracture heating membrane. Ideal for electric underfloor heating systems - as well as tile and stone installations – the patented membrane promotes a fast, easy installation of tile and stone in bathrooms, shower rooms, kitchens and living areas. It can also be used as a substrate for mosaic tile, wood and resilient floors.

Featuring a light-weight construction and thin profile, Mapeheat Membrane Maxi is suitable for multiple sized cables – from 2mm to 5.5mm – and helps prevent transmission of in-plane substrate cracks up to 3mm. Heating cables are easy to install and minimal roll memory helps to promote a rapid, flat and secure installation. In addition to new builds, the membrane’s thin profile also works well in remodelling projects, where flooring can be installed above an original surface. Once heating cables are set within Mapeheat Membrane Maxi’s reliefs, tile adhesive or levelling/smoothing compound can be applied immediately. When installing with ceramic tiles, the use of a minimum class C2 EN 12004 adhesive is recommended.

For a complete underfloor heating solution, Mapei’s range also includes Mapeheat, with technology from nVent RAYCHEM. The Mapeheat system comprises three components: NEW Mapeheat Membrane Maxi, Mapeheat Cable and Mapeheat Mesh, used in conjunction with three thermostat options. Mapeheat’s thin profile and waterproof construction make it suitable for all internal environments - in new builds, renovations and remodelling projects - including kitchens, bathrooms, steam rooms and other spa environments. Meanwhile, for a one-stop shop, Mapei offers the complete warranty solution including Mapeheat underfloor heating, screed, levelling compound, adhesive and grout, alongside expert technical knowledge and support.
