Liquid Applied Waterproofing involves the application of a monolithic, fully bonded, liquid based coating to a roof, gutter or external cladding. The coating cures to form a rubber-like elastomeric waterproof membrane, capable of stretching and returning to its original shape without damage.
Liquid applied coating systems are usually reinforced with secondary materials such as GRP or Polyester Matting to provide additional tensile strength. The coatings can be applied over most traditional roofing materials, including felt, asphalt, bitumen, and concrete. Liquid Applied Waterproofing Membranes are water or solvent solvent based polymer membranes.
Life expectancy for Liquid Applied Waterproofing Membranes range for 5 to 25 years dependent on the specification of the system.
