Liquid Spray Applied Waterproofing Membranes

We often get asked why we are such fans of Liquid Rubber waterproofing membranes as opposed to conventional sheet method.

Here are what we consider a few good reasons.

Problem: Flames & Heat. Damage to pipes, wiring, timber and infrastructure due to flame/heat applied waterproofing (Torch On).

Liquid Rubber – Cold Spray Applied
Liquid Rubber is cold spray applied non-flammable liquid.

Problem: Associated Fumes and VOCs.
Many membranes i.e urethanes, vinyl and epoxy based coatings are high in VOCs (Volatile Organic Chemicals).

Liquid Rubber is Environmentally Friendly. Liquid Rubber products meet OH&S considerations: environmentally safe, non-hazardous, non-toxic, virtually odourless and non-flammable components.

Problem: De-lamination.
Sheet Membrane joins can de-laminate creating leaks.

Liquid Rubber is Seamless.
Liquid Rubber is spray applied producing a SEAMLESS membrane with superior adhesion.

Problem: Cracks & Joins
Traditional membranes harden over time which may cause cracks to appear and lead to membrane failure.

Liquid Rubber Elasticity. Liquid Rubber is UV resistant, strong and flexible with an elasticity of 800% (not age affected) and 95% memory.

Problem: Time
Multiple coats, increased manual labour, longer curing time all add up to a lengthy process. Also requires a completely dry the substrate.

Liquid Rubber: Instant Set.
Liquid Rubber application is FAST – rapid curing, one coat, and substrate can be slightly damp.
