Newton 603 Tile


Suitable for use on tiled or paved floors, and floor builds that include underfloor heating systems.

Suitable substrate:

  • Solid floors of concrete or screed;
  • Ventilated timber floors.


A composite decoupling mat with an installation height of 3 mm. The blue LDPE (low-density polyethylene) dimpled core has a polypropylene fleece heat-welded to both the upper and lower surfaces, which quickly absorbs adhesives to provide an exceptional bond to both the substrate below and the tiled floor finish above. The material is also elastic and highly impervious to the diffusion of water vapour.

The decoupling mat isolates the finished floor surface from any cracking or movement within the substrate and provides improved distribution and relief from compressive stress acting on specific points on the floor. Furthermore, the interconnecting air channels around the dimples ventilate the substrate below to equalise vapour pressure.

Newton 603 Tile is guaranteed against deterioration for 30 years, has a life expectancy of at least 50 years (DIN 9001:2000), and is inert with good compressive stability. It is highly resistant to water, alkalines, saline solutions and organic acids, and is not affected by minerals. It is also resistant to bacteria, fungi and other small organisms.

Features and benefits:

  • Accommodates movement and prevents the transfer of stresses from the substrate to the tiled surface.
  • Adds only 3mm to the floor finishes.
  • Effective air and vapour barrier if joints are sealed.
  • Lightweight and easy to install.
  • Loadbearing, tough and durable.

Accreditations and approvals:

Newton 603 Tile is independently tested by SKZ TeConA GmbH to confirm performance data to the requirements of DIN EN 13967:2012 in accordance with the EU Construction Products Regulations. Please see the CE Label or the products’ Declaration of Performance for further information.

In addition to the above, Newton 603 Tile has been tested for the Determination of the Thermal Conductivity to BS EN 12667:2001 which confirmed a thermal conductivity of 0.0369 W/mK.
