Cork Underlayment


Do you know of a supplier of 6ml cork underlay to be used for the installation of a tile floors over a heated wire floor system on a concrete slab subfloor?

I have an existing floor composed of 2 - 5/8 plywood materials, which was previously carpeted using a carpet adhesive. The carpet was removed, however some of the carpet glue remained on the plywood subfloor. If I plan to install the cork underlayment on the subfloor is is necessary to remove the remanants of the carpet adhesive. The remaining carpet adhesive is stubbornly attached to the subfloor. I plan to install the cork underlayment using an urethan adhesive.

Sorry--I just run down to my local tile supplier and pick it up.

Where do you live? There might be a tile supplier that has it.

I prefer rolls. This is just a personal choice. Look at the layout of the room and see which one will be easier to lay out. Before buying the cork, find out the density. Cork can vary in from manufacturer to manufacturer. Find one with between 10 to 12 pound density. I prefer 1/4 inch over 1/8 inch.
