Hydroban Waterproofing Membrane

Hydroban is a latex waterproofing membrane and crack suppression product used in showers and wet areas. It can be applied with a brush, roller, or trowel and the tools can easily be cleaned with water. It needs no liner for cracks 1/8” or less and with wider cracks it can be used with a liner, which is also sold by Laticrete. It can also be used outside. With two coats applied it carries a 10 to 15 year warranty on commercial work and a life time warranty on residential. It can be walked on in 4 to 6 hours and water tested in 24 hours.

This product is manufactured by the Laticrete. It comes in 1,2, and 5 gallon units and while it is rather expensive, it is much cheaper than repairing a leaking shower.
I buy hydroban at Building Products Inc. I have used other waterproofing membranes and this one is the best that I have found.
