To Be Distributed in The United States

Rochester, NH, Expected Launch Date: June 1, 2021. Jaeger USA, a New Hampshire based company, announced today that they are planning on launching a private label Uncoupling Membrane to be used in conjunction with their sheet membrane and full shower sealing system this summer.

Jaeger USA’s Uncoupling Membrane has been designed specifically for ceramic and stone tile installations to provide uncoupling in order to prevent cracked tile and grout. The Uncoupling Layer functions as a waterproofing membrane, vapor management layer, and uncoupling layer that prevents moisture from collecting beneath the tile covering. Designed for Sealing the Tub and/or Shower Tray both with and without Flange for Tile.

“Our long-term goal with producing and distributing the Uncoupling Membrane in America is to take the hassle out of buying products overseas,” said Wink Faulkner, CEO of Jaeger USA. “The year 2020 was unprecedented for a number of reasons and really showed us that unexpected disruptions in the supply chain affect us all. Our top customers expressed a need and we recognized opportunities in the supply chain we can fill here in America to better meet our customers’ expectations.”

Uncoupling Membrane

Jaeger USA’s Uncoupling Membrane is a polyethylene waterproofing membrane designed specifically for ceramic and stone tile installations. By providing air space between the tile and subfloor uncoupling membranes prevent cracked tile and grout. Easy to install over a variety of subfloors including concrete, plywood, OSB, and radiant heated floors.

Vapor Management Vapor management is the distinguishing feature of Jaeger USA’s Uncoupling Membrane. Designed to detach, separate; uncouple the tile to enable it to move independently from the concrete below.

The existence of free space is created by the channels on the underside of the matting. The free space provides a route for excess moisture and vapor to escape away from the substrate. Over time excessive moisture will cause damage to the tile layer above. The separation is how the uncoupling membrane effectively manages moisture beneath the tile covering.

The uncoupling membrane provides uncoupling to prevent cracked tile and grout.

Jaeger USA is the private label manufacturing partner specializing in the production of a wide range of under-tile waterproofing solutions. Over the years, we’re proud to have garnered the trust and loyalty of many well-known partners and countless other long-term customers.
