WetSuit® 2 PART
The WetSuit® liquid membrane is a fully self-adhered, cold spray-applied, self-flashing membrane with a wide variety of uses for virtually all above and below-grade applications.
It can be sprayed to any mil thickness in a single pass thus creating a truly custom and precise membrane allowing unparalleled architectural freedom and ease of application.
Spraying system & coating covered by US Pat. No. 8,919,278, US Pat. No. 8,940,382 and patent pending
Unrivaled Quality & Versatility
FM testing has qualified WetSuit® in a class of its own. It is one of a select few materials on the market with a Class A fire rating, severe hail resistance, 2124% elongation, and a wind uplift of Class 1-990! In addition, e WetSuit® is proven as a viable air and vapor barrier. With very low perms, The WetSuit® can be employed not only in below-grade applications and roofing but in between as a seamless, fluid-applied vapor barrier as well.
The Healthier and Safer Coating Alternative
The water-based, no VOC, low pressure, cold spray applied, non-flammable features of The WetSuit® eliminate job hazards such as torches, solvents, and heavy equipment.
Time and Money Saving
Because WetSuit® is so lightweight and with excellent adhesion to most surfaces, the need to tear off existing roofs is most often eliminated, greatly reducing installation costs and environmental impact. Surface preparation is generally limited to pressure washing the old roof to provide a clean surface for WetSuit® to adhere to. Utilizing only one applicator, WetSuit® can be installed at a fast and efficient rate of 1500 sq ft per hour, reducing crew size and job time.
WetSuit® 1 PART
The WetSuit® 1 PART is a water-based, medium viscosity, self-leveling liquid applied membrane that can be sprayed, brushed, or roll applied up to 80 mils wet vertically. WetSuit® 1 PART is used in roofing, waterproofing, and air/vapor barrier applications.
For roofing, WetSuit® 1 PART is ideal for standing seam metal, aged SPF, wood, and concrete. Our reinforcement fabric, Invisilink™, is frequently embedded into WetSuit® 1 PART during the preparatory phase by application to existing seams and joints, or to create a fully reinforced membrane.
WetSuit® 1 PART is primarily used as a stand-alone membrane or as counter-flashing to WetSuit® 2 PARTs.
The WetSuit® UNDERCOVER is a water-based, medium viscosity, self-leveling membrane that can be sprayed, brushed, or roll applied up to 80 mils wet vertically. UNDERCOVER is used exclusively under, or between, the WetSuit® products.
WetSuit® UNDERCOVER exhibits a tenacious adhesion to most substrates and is primarily used as a detailed product in conjunction with Invisilink™ fabric to detail penetrations, pre-strip in joints, edging, or cant strips, or self-level areas prior to WetSuit® 2 PARTs application.
WetSuit® TROWEL is a high-viscosity, water-based coating specifically designed as a roofing and waterproofing patch. Applied by trowel or brush, it is ideal for sealing leaky roof penetrations, ducting, flashings, cracks, joints, and tears. WetSuit® TROWEL is ideal on EPDM, TPO, asphalt, wood, metal, concrete and foam. Additionally, WetSuit® TROWEL can be used as a waterproofing adhesive for setting tile and stone and is a very efficient product for preparation to fill cracks, and voids and as a boot for small penetrations.
WetSuit® FIBER TROWEL
WetSuit® TROWEL has been reinforced with fiberglass strands which cures into a high tensile strength, minimum elongation roofing, and waterproofing patch. Trowel, brush, or hand applied, it works perfectly for detailing high-movement areas such as penetrations and joints.
WetSuit® PRIME MATE
WetSuit® PRIME MATE is a high-quality, plasticizer-free, single-component, water-based, acrylic primer for spray brush or roller application. It is designed to provide both excellent adhesion as well as plasticizer migration resistance. It is formulated to block plasticizer migration from PVC membranes that can cause unsightly discoloration and premature failure of elastomeric coating systems. It has excellent adhesion to most single-ply surfaces including PVC, Hypalon and aged TPO. It provides an excellent surface for subsequent application of acrylic and 100% solids Silicone coatings.
It has the unique ability to “breath”, providing a completely watertight membrane while allowing trapped moisture to escape WetSuit® PRIME MATE is designed as a primer for various single-ply membranes including PVC, Hypalon and Aged TPO.
