Durabase CI Matting 1m2 is rated
Rated 4 out of
This feels like a quality item, and from the descriptions, a very good idea, if a tad pricey - hence 4* for Value. Not able to say whether it works, as only time will tell.
For fitting / cutting, make sure you have a REALLY sharp knife (easy). Not-so-sharp (pain).
My main gripe with this item is the webpage. Durabase is sold by cut length, off the roll. Hence, you get no instructions. While the staff are (as usual) helpful, at point of sale, it can be easy to later forget a small detail. I went to the webpage for info - absolutely no info at all! I wanted to know how long you had to wait before tiling, as I had heard no wait needed. As webpage useless I called local Topps branch. But I shouldn't have had to waste their time! Topps reply was to adhere (!) to adhesive drying times, so typically 3 hours, as best using a rapid-setting cement-based adhesive.
In absence of instructions Topps chap said to use a light roller to aid conact between matting & adhesive. Surprise! no roller to hand, but I did weight the matting down with tiles, using some odd planks to spread the load. It did seem to benefit from this
