Easymat?

I just returned empty handed from HD. I went to get Ditra for a tile install. When I couldn't find it I asked the woman in the tile department where it was. She didn't even know what it was. She got another guy who also didn't know what Ditra was. When I explained he showed me some stuff called EasyMat. I did a dealer search on line and neither HD or Lowes are listed.

I looked at the label and said no thanks. An illustration showed this self sticking stuff over their primer and a minimum 5/8" subfloor with thinset and tile on top.

Has anyone used Easymat? Any opinions Easymat vs Ditra?

I've never seen or used it, but have read up on it on the other tile forum I frequent. If you google John Bridge, you will probably know where I am talking about...

Thanks for the steer. I got enough info to convince me to give it a try.

Easy mat comes in 2 different types. One is a peel n stick, and the other gets bedded in thinset like ditra. I've heard that the peel n stick is difficult to work with as it curls up and doesnt stick well. I've heard that the easy mat that you bed in thinset is a good product. I've not used easy mat yet.
