Tilemate is a high strength laminated membrane consisting of a woven polypropylene sheet bonded to a fibreglass core with rubber modified asphalt. It is designed for use as an underlayment beneath metal, concrete or clay roofing tile. It’s high tensile strength allows it to be used over open-truss construction beneath spaced wood strapping.
Tilemate is an excellent water barrier, that sheds water which may leak past roofing tiles. It is also self sealing at nail penetrations due to its rubber modified asphalt. Tilemate prevents the moisture in humid attic air from reaching the underside of roofing tiles. Tilemate prevents leakage caused by ice build-up in winter at eaves. Tilemate is built strong — our membrane is strong enough to resist fall-through by roofing installers or installer’s tools when used over open-trusses.
