SikaTile®-225 Fracture Guard PNS is a 40 mil (1 mm), thin, flexible, self-bonding, fabric reinforced, membrane that isolates ceramic and natural stone tile from cracks in the substrate. Suitable for both full and partial coverage applications. SikaTile®-225 Fracture Guard PNS is a crack isolation membrane that exceeds the requirements of ANSI A118.12 and protects tile from in plane movement up to 3⁄8” (9.5 mm). Its strong self-adhesive backing and uniquely designed surface provide secure bonding for all types of ceramic, natural stone, and terrazzo tile. After application, ceramic tile or stone can be installed immediately using appropriate SikaTile® polymer-modified cement-based mortar. Additionally, glue-down wood flooring can also be installed with approved urethane adhesives. SikaTile®-225 Fracture Guard PNS also reduces the transmission of impact and airborne sound through floors when installed under ceramic tile, stone, or wood floor coverings.
