Substituting Kerdi Membrane for Kerdi Band

I am doing a shower install in my house. I purchased the Kerdi shower kit. Some how the roll of Kerdi Band decided to walk off the job site. My question to this forum is this. I have a fair amount of Kerdi membrane left and I was wondering about cutting that into 4 inch strips and use it in place of the band. I will be using it where the vertical meets the shower pan. I do have the Kerdi corner pieces. Are there reasons to not do this? I can certainly go pick up a roll of band but I thought I could just use the membrane.

Hi Chuck, Cutting the standard kerdi fabric into strips works just fine. I did exactly the same thing on a master shower project I did a few years ago.

Kerdi is a bit thicker than KerdiBand, but will work in the same way.
