Anti-Fracture Membranes

How do I install 9235 Waterproofing Membrane as an anti-fracture membrane?


9235 Waterproofing Membrane is a cold-applied, liquid rubber polymer which is used with the Waterproofing/Anti-Fracture Fabric. The liquid is applied with a paint roller or paint brush and the fabric is embedded into the liquid until the liquid bleeds through the fabric. A top coat of the membrane liquid is immediately applied over the fabric. LATASILTM is applied at drains connections and pipe penetrations. The membrane must be covered by a hard, bearing surface within 30 days as per the installation instructions.

How do I install HYDRO BAN® as an anti-fracture membrane?


HYDRO BAN® is a cold-applied, liquid rubber polymer which is applied with a paint roller, paint brush or airless paint sprayer. No membrane reinforcing fabric is typically required. The first liquid coat must be completely dry to the touch prior to applying the second coat of membrane liquid. HYDRO BAN will change from a sage green color to an olive green color when dry. The second liquid coat can then be applied and must also dry to the touch. A LATICRETE Latex-fortified thin-set (e.g. 254 Platinum) may be used to install most types of tile or stone directly to the HYDRO BAN. Please refer to the HYDRO BAN data sheet and HYDRO BAN Installation Instructions for more complete information.

How do I install FRACTURE BAN™?


FRACTURE BAN™ is a high performance, pliable, light weight peel and stick membrane designed for use under thin-bed adhesives for ceramic tile, stone and other hard surface installations. FRACTURE BAN is available in two (2) configurations; FRACTURE BAN 40 is 40 mil (1mm) thick and FRACTURE BAN 90 is 90 mil (2.3mm) thick. Properly prepared interior substrates to be treated with FRACTURE BAN must first be primed with FRACTURE BAN Primer. Measure the area and cut the FRACTURE BAN length 6” to 8” (152 to 203mm) longer than needed to allow for a trimmed fit. Lay FRACTURE BAN on surface with release liner side down. Pull release paper off membrane while hand smoothing ridges and air pockets to ensure 100% contact and good bond. Trim excess material as needed at wall, corners or terminations. Apply subsequent rolls in the same manner and ensure that the edges are butted together. Refer to product data sheet for more information, including for exterior applications.

How do I install FRACTURE BAN™ SC?


FRACTURE BAN™ SC is a thin, load bearing, self-curing liquid rubber polymer that can be easily applied in a single coat to form a flexible seamless anti-fracture membrane. Pre-treat cracks, joints, coves and floor/wall/transitions as stated in product data sheet. For the main application, install FRACTURE BAN SC onto properly prepared interior, horizontal substrates, using a paint brush or roller to apply a liberal coat (30 – 40 mils (0.75 – 1 mm) wet thickness. Use a wet film gauge to ensure proper wet mil thickness is achieved. Refer to product data sheet for more information.

What adhesives are acceptable for installing tile or stone over HYDRO BAN®, 9235 Waterproofing Membrane, and FRACTURE BAN SC?


Some options are:
LATAPOXY® 300 Adhesive (for chemical resistant installations and the installation of moisture sensitive stone)*:
257 Titanium
254 Platinum
254R Platinum Rapid
MULTIMAX™ LITE
TRI-LITE™


*NOTE: Requires 9235 Waterproofing Membrane to cure for a full 7 days prior to installing with LATAPOXY 300.

*NOTE: Do not install moisture-sensitive tile or stone with water based setting materials on top of FRACTURE BAN peel & stick membranes. Also, dimensionally weak natural stone tile that normally would not be categorized as moisture sensitive; such as travertine, limestone, marble and agglomerates can exhibit doming, cupping or curing when wet-set using medium-bed mortar methods of installation over impervious sheet membranes such as FRACTURE BAN. For this reason, areas requiring more than 3/8” (10 mm) buildup require the use of an NXT™ self-leveling underlayment or cured 3701 Fortified Mortar application before installation of FRACTURE BAN. When installing natural stone, always do a mockup area of the proposed installation and allow materials to reach full cure to ensure achieving the desired effect.

If I find an air bubble or blister in FRACTURE BAN SC, HYDRO BAN, 9235 Waterproofing Membrane, or HYDRO BARRIER, what can I do?


Cut out the bubble or blister to sound and well-adhered membrane. Apply a liberal amount of waterproofing membrane liquid over the newly exposed area and overlap 2" to 6" (50mm to 150mm) onto surrounding membrane. If required in the original membrane application (e.g. 9235 Waterproofing Membrane), place the Waterproofing/Anti-Fracture Fabric into the wet liquid and ensure that the liquid bleeds through the fabric. Immediately top coat the area with an additional coat of membrane liquid. Allow to dry to the touch (typically 2 - 4 hours) and then place one more coat of liquid over the area. If flood testing, wait the stated period of time to flood test as stated on the product data sheet (for the membrane used), or, refer to the FAQ shown on this page.

Can I use a mastic to install tile over an anti-fracture membrane?


No. A latex fortified thin-set (e.g. 257 Titanium, 254 Platinum, etc...) or large, heavy tile mortar (e.g. MULTIMAX LITE), which complies with ANSI A118.4, A118.11 or A118.15 is required to properly bond tile or stone to a waterproofing membrane. An ANSI A118.3 compliant, full spread epoxy adhesive (LATAPOXY 300 Adhesive) may also be used.

Can you install vinyl tile over HYDRO BAN®, 9235 Waterproofing Membrane, FRACTURE BAN™, or FRACTURE BAN SC?


Yes - after the HYDRO BAN®, 9235 Waterproofing Membrane, FRACTURE BAN™, or FRACTURE BAN SC is installed, use a latex based vinyl adhesive to adhere the vinyl tile to the membranes. Ensure that the adhesive contains no solvents. If there is a question as to the compatibility of the vinyl adhesive and the membrane, apply a continuous 1/8" (3mm) thick coating of a LATICRETE® polymer fortified thin-set mortar to the membrane and allow to harden. Then install the vinyl flooring.

Can you install HYDRO BAN®, 9235 Waterproofing Membrane, FRACTURE BAN™, or FRACTURE BAN SC over plywood in exterior applications?


No – HYDRO BAN®, 9235 Waterproofing , FRACTURE BAN, or FRACTURE BAN SC are not intended for this installation. You must use the LATICRETE™ Plaza and Deck System for these applications.
