Ahhh...

Here's a link. Looks like a crack isolation membrane. They sure don't say much about it though

Jason, I edited only to light up the url. J.B.

Hi Gary,

Looks like a carpet company breaking into the hard flooring business. I'll be it's a foam, although they don't seem to want to tell you that. They call it a "non-woven" product.

John,

I have a sample of Gator Mat and of Kerdi, and they are very close to being the same except in color and texture.

Just wondering if anybody had used it before?

Thanks Gary

Gary,

I guess none of us has. They just don't say a lot about it on that site. How did you get the sample? From whom?

Noble Company's products look like that, too, and they have their own color. Blue.

John,

I got it at the 2004 Coverings Trade show I attended in Orlando.
They gave me a 8 x 8 swatch of it, and then about a month later i got a partial roll in the mail.

I saw it at Coverings also. I quizzed the representative at the booth and finalyy got a reply that the material is polypropylene, which would classify it as a non-woven. Doesn't make me any less skittish about it until I see some more data....
