Thin-Skin Two Part Underlayment System

Don't be forced to tear out your existing surface, tile over it! Tavy® Thin-Skin will allow you to tile over surfaces that typically would have to be torn out so that the proper surface could be created to tile over. With Tavy® Thin-Skin you can tile over Formica, vinyl, linoleum, plywood, painted surfaces, porcelain, drywall, metal, stainless steel, fiberglass, ceramic tile, and any other sound surface.

The TAVY Thin-Skin Two Part Underlayment System was developed to provide an underlayment for tile that could be installed over any surface without adding additional height to the sub-floor
