Anyone know about Coraloy?

I was advised to use something called Coraloy (or perhaps Coroloy, see below) on a construction project. I trust the person who gave me this advice, but was trying to find something on-line about this stuff, and was really surprised that I couldn't locate this product through a Google search.
Searching *does* yield a couple of pages that discuss this material, but no manufacturer's web site, no commercial sites offering it. Searching for "coroloy" only brings up some pages in German. Strange.
It's a sheet plastic material used for shower pans, among other things.
Anyone know anything about this stuff? Where to get it? I'm going to talk to my local tile shop about it tomorrow.

Google returns www.coreau.com which it appears is parent company. It appears to be a French company. Their site uses Flash which I don't load so here's about all I found.

Not clear this is the right one for the membrane, though as they seem to be specialty pumps and gears.
Did find a tile forum that talks of it a couple of times -- if no luck locally, might try the www.johnbridge.com forum and ask the respondent where it's from.
I'd say if it's that difficult to locate it probably isn't going to be available w/o a whole lot of trouble so I'd go w/ a traditional pan or other membrane product.

And a puzzle strikes me -- how come the recommender couldn't provide the info?
:)

On 4/21/2008 8:05 AM dpb spake thus:

Heh; it helps if you look for the product under the correct name.
Today I called the local tile place here and asked about this stuff, as the recommender told me they carry it. It's *Chloraloy*, made by Noble:
http://www.noblecompany.com/Products/SheetMembranes/tabid/58/Default.aspx
(The "chlor-" is because it's made of chlorinated polyethylene.)
The tile place (Import Tile in Berkeley) also suggested another waterproofing membrane from Schluter called "Kerdi":
http://www.schluter.com/8_1_kerdi.aspx
If anyone has had experience with either one of these products, or with any similar waterproofing membranes, I'd appreciate hearing from you. In the meantime I'm going back to my recommender with a new set of questions. (Like what is "fat mud", which is what the tile people recommended I use with the membrane on vertical surfaces?)

I've used both Noble and Schluter products. Both work well, but my sense is that Schluter is the better. Take advantage of their corner pieces and pipe flanges too.
