Just planning the electric underfloor heating install for the kitchen. Looks like it is going straight onto concrete slab, with suitable primer adhesive, then 10-12 mm of latex slc over it to get to the level of the other rooms. Is this sensible to have such a depth? Thanks.

Thanks for your reply. I was advised by my tiler that I did not need insulation boards. Since the base is slab, I do wonder whether 6mm of insulation board would help.

You might find that the slab sucks all the heat out of the UFH without insulation but 6mm probably isn't worth it.
