Qualifies For

Formulated from rubber polymer, HYDRO BAN is a liquid, single component, self-curing liquid waterproofing membrane that forms a thin, seamless, flexible waterproofing and anti-fracture membrane. HYDRO BAN liquid membrane waterproofing will bond directly to metal, PVC or ABS plumbing fixtures and is applied without the use of fabric including in coves or corners. Flood testing can be done over HYDRO BAN liquid waterproofing membrane in just 2 hours* after final cure saving time and money particularly when flood testing in cold temperatures and over mortar beds. Laticrete HYDRO BAN liquid waterproofing membrane is quicker to install than the cumbersome process of installing sheet membrane waterproofing.

A liquid waterproofing membrane is used in construction to ensure that water and other liquids do not pass through. A common example of this use is when a waterproofing membrane is placed in between the top of a slab and the bottom of the finishing tiles. Apart from the membrane, there is also a filler material. This is laid at a slope so the water can slide off easily. This will prevent the formation of small puddles on the surface of the tiles.


Any waterproof material can be used to make these liquid waterproofing membrane. Usually the thickness of the membrane is up to a maximum of 4 mm. Generally, liquid membrane waterproofing can be done by using two types of membranes. These membranes could either be sheet based membranes or liquid applied membranes. Whatever the membrane used, it should be both flexible and strong. This ensures that the membrane can easily take up any shape it is laid over, without tearing. If the part of the building where the membrane is to be used is exposed to the sun, it should be stable to the effect of UV rays as well. This is why the best liquid waterproofing membranes are usually sheet based, so that these features can be incorporated.


You won’t need any fabric when you use the Laticrete HYDRO BAN 5 gallon pack. Also, the layer is very thin, to the extent of just 0.02 to 0.03 inches after curing. You need to be aware that once the curing is completed, the membrane would undergo a change in colour, from a light greyish sage colour to an olive green colour. It also contains a proprietary material Microban. This provides microbial protection to the structure.

    I suggest you have smaller packs of 2 gallons of Laticrete HYDRO BAN Liquid Waterproofing Membrane or so please. I had a small patch of my bathroom to do, but ended up working the whole wall because I had a 5 gallon pail of Hydro Ban to use.

    This product is incredible! Simply put in a paint pan. Use a brush for the corner areas then use a roller for the rest. I used 5 Gallon to completely waterproof my tub surround up to the ceiling.
