LATICRETE Hydro Ban Waterproofing Membrane

LATICRETE Hydro Ban is a versatile waterproofing membrane that LATICRETE has developed to eliminate the need for the use of fabric in the field, coves, or corners. Hydro Ban is a liquid rubber polymer that can be applied in a similar fashion to paint, forming a flexible and seamless waterproofing membrane over the surface. The thin, load bearing waterproofing membrane is self curing and provides anti-fracture protection of up to 1/8” (3 mm) over shrinkage and other non-structural cracks.

Easy to Apply & Fast to Cure

The waterproofing membrane is easy to use and apply. LATICRETE Hydro Ban can be applied right out of the pail using a paint brush, paint roller, or trowel over a suitable substrate. After curing, tile, brick, and stone can be installed directly onto the membrane. A fast curing time (when cured at 70°F (21°C) and 50% RH) allows for foot traffic in 4 – 6 hours and for flood testing in 24 hours. When fully cured, the membrane changes in color from a light sage to an olive green.

Use for Showers & Other Waterproofing Applications

LATICRETE Hydro Ban is ideal for a variety of applications that require waterproofing. Containing Microban antimicrobial product protection, the waterproof membrane is IAPMO (International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials) approved. Hydro Ban can be used in both interior and exterior applications including showers, bathrooms, swimming pools and hot tubs, fountains and water features, kitchens, counter tops, facades, and terraces and balconies over unoccupied spaces.

Hydro Ban Water Proofing June 12, 2015
Reviewer: John Kreamer from Middleburg, PA United States  
This is the only waterproofing material I ever use and I use it on every tile tub/shower surround.  Worth every penny!  Use it in conjunction with Hydro Ban Sealant and Adhesive for the best results.

Reviewer: SHELDON RAY from KAAAWA, HI United States  
I removed my tub and put in a shower, I have to say  Hydro Ban is eazy to work with, it spreads on like butter, no need to use any kind of tape and it drys to a strong bond.   I will be ordering another gallon for my down stairs bath project.

Great waterproofing product July 15, 2013
Reviewer: Paul L from Wyncote, PA United States  
Hydroban was easy to apply and clean up and dried within 60 minutes.  Definitely needs two coats to cover well.  Would use it over a plastic vapor barrier every time.
