Afternoon all,

I'm currently in the middle of renovating my bathroom and I'm close to tiling the floor. I've only ever tiled a floor once and that was just onto a self leveling compound. Considering it's upstairs I've fixed a plywood subfloor down for added strength and flatness but I'm very confused about the adhesive for the ditra matting and tiling adhesive. The only advice I can find mentions modified mortar but is that the same as UK mortar? I've got two bags of S2 ultraflexible adhesive, would it be OK to use this under the membrane and also on top? Also, would it be a good idea to seal the plywood with SBR before I lay the membrane?

Many thanks,
Jim
