Warmup recently announced a Peel-and-Stick version of the DCM-PRO Membrane floor heating system for the North American market. The TCNA-tested membrane adheres directly onto plywood and concrete subfloors without the use of thinset. Launched in the UK, France and Germany in 2016, it has been successfully tested to ANSI 118.12 anti-fracture standards and the Robinson test (ASTM C-627).
The patented DCM-PRO Peel-and-Stick System is making floor heating accessible to all installers. The Warmup DCM-PRO design has gained popularity in its first year with a fleece-backed version, delivering warmer floors, faster. The DCM-PRO design allows higher heating outputs and for more adhesive-to-cable contact. This allows heat to distribute faster and more evenly through the floor. In addition, the design also offers protection from installation damage, reducing the risk of cable failure.
The popular benefits of the fleece-backed Membrane led to the innovation of the DCM-PRO Peel-and-Stick Membrane. The polyethylene adhesive will bond to subfloors with 140 lbs of torque/sqft leading to a possible 40% savings in time and materials. The membrane can be cut to size, the protective film peeled, and the membrane pressed directly onto the subfloor.
The use of modified or unmodified adhesives over the membrane is the installers’ choice to best suit their installation needs. The DCM-PRO Peel-and-Stick Membrane can also be covered with self-levelling mortars (SLU’s) to allow installation of small format tiles and other floor types such as glue-down wood and LVT. There is no waiting required after installation so you can begin laying flooring immediately. The DCM-PRO Membrane is ready to tile.
