Mapetex is a special non-woven fabric designed to alleviate stresses within the substrate thus preserving the integrity of the tiled finish. Used correctly Mapetex can assist in dissipating the stresses created within certain types of floor substrates.

Key Features

  • Ideal for use on timber substrates e.g. plywood, T&G floorboards
  • Bridges hairline cracks within the substrate.
  • Bridges stress relieving joints in substrates.
  • Allows floors areas in adjoining rooms to be interlinked without threshold movement joints.
  • Permits tiled floors to be installed diagonally over existing opposing movement joints.

Mapetex is produced using a special technique. The particular fibres of the material ensure high mechanical strength of the non-woven fabric and a surface that ensures the best interaction with MAPEI tile adhesives means that the membrane can easily cope with lateral movement within substrates. Mapetex also helps prevent cracks appearing in the tiled finish when used over less than perfect substrates. In many cases, Mapetex eliminates the need to overboard with plywood or other suitable boards, making it ideal for restoration projects or new build including use with underfloor / undertile heating systems.

Perfect, tile fitter happy with product.

Bought on the advice of the team at the Cheadle Heath tile mountain. It was the first place I visited, And returned after shopping around. Customer service is outstanding. Have recommended to friends and going back for bathroom tiles.

Hi. Can this be used externally over a concrete substrate? Cheers


Our advice: Mapei advsie that this is suitable for external use, but as there are no waterproofing properties, we couldn't guarantee the product's longevity. It may be a better idea to source something with a waterproof barrier. Unfortunately, that would be something we don't stock.

Hi, can i use keraflex maxi s1 to put this matting down?


Our advice: Keraflex Maxi would not be suitable for use with Mapetex. This must be installed with a combination of Keraquick rapid set adhesive and the Latex Plus additive.
