STRATA_MAT is a next generation high performance uncoupling membrane for use under ceramic tile and stone installations, for both residential and commercial applications. Designed to replace traditional underlayment materials. The unique patent pending design of STRATA_MAT provides for an enhanced mechanical bond of the adhesive mortar and provides for faster drying of the mortar, allowing for shorter time to grout.

Followed as per instructions, The installation was very easy but the next day we did realize that the mat did come up in many spots. Maybe using a square notch instead of a V notch may solve this issue?

I like the option of using appropriate thin set to the tile and you can visually confirm thin set coverage.
