Product Focus: Warmup Updates DCM-Pro Mat
Warmup introduces a peel-and-stick version of its DCM-PRO Membrane floor heating system. According to the company, “the TCNA-tested membrane is the first of its kind and adheres directly onto plywood and concrete subfloors without the use of thin set. 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). Combined with the DCM-PRO cable, it is the only UL-approved membrane system on the market today.”
The patented DCM-PRO Peel-and-Stick System is designed to make top-of-the-line floor heating accessible to all installers, the company said. The original, fleece-backed version of the DCM-PRO mat allows for high heating outputs and more adhesive-to-cable contact while also offering protection from installation damage. The new DCM-PRO Peel-and-Stick Membrane uses a polyethylene adhesive that will bond to subfloors with 140 lbs. of torque per sq. ft. Simply cut the membrane to size, peel back the protective film, press the membrane directly onto the subfloor, and fit the cable in.
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 to allow installation of small-format tile and other flooring types such as glue-down hardwood and LVT. Floors can be laid immediately after installation of the membrane.
Warmup’s DCM-PRO System can be found in retail locations across North America. To learn more about the DCM-PRO Peel-and-Stick Membrane, visit warmup.com and see the product firsthand at The International Surface Event in Las Vegas, January 22-25, 2019.
