Case for full floor coverage crack suppression membranes

Summary

The use of latex crack suppression membranes in tile fixing  is discussed. The membranes are used in all types of building and full floor coverage is rapidly replacing the use of strip applications over joints. It is stressed that the benefits of full floor coverage outweigh the extra cost as all cracks are suppressed. Costs to remove and replace damaged tiles that have resulted because of strip applications can be prohibitive.
