High performance: MP Global Products' UltraLayer

MP Global Products has introduced the VOC-free, odorless and hypoallergenic UltraLayer, a high performing underlayment that delivers acoustic and insulating performance under ceramic and porcelain tile, and most natural stone.

Engineered to perform in a range of tile applications, including under SnapStone, Avaire and Eclipse tile flooring systems, UltraLayer qualifies for two TCNA Robinson Test ratings. It also features randomly air-laid filaments that create a capillary effect to cushion the floor, dampening ambient sound in the room where it is installed and minimizing impact and airborne sound from traveling to the room below. Sporting insulating qualities, UltraLayer similarly adds an R-value of 0.42 to the floor assembly that will keep floors warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

With its 0.10" thickness, UltraLayer is firm enough to support the overlying floor yet flexible enough to form around sub-floor roughness so minor imperfections are smoothed before the finish floor is laid.  When used with ceramic, UltraLayer inhibits concrete subfloor cracks from telegraphing through to the tile or grout above. It is warranted for a period of 15 years.
