Custom Building Products has announced technology improvements to RedGard Waterproofing and Crack Prevention Membrane. RedGard is a ready-to-use elastomeric membrane for both commercial and residential tile and stone installations. According to the company, RedGard now cures 30 percent faster, and is even easier to apply than before.

“Professionals have relied on RedGard for many years, because of its reliability, performance and ease of use,” said Ryan Brausa, Product Manager for Custom Building Products. “Easier application and reduced cure times allow contractors to flood test and set tile sooner, saving time, effort and money on the job site.”

RedGard is suited for both interior and exterior substrates and meets ANSI standards A118.10 for waterproofing and A118.12 for crack isolation. It creates a waterproofing barrier with outstanding adhesion, and significantly reduces crack submission in tile and stone floors, according to the copmany. When used in a system with qualifying Custom products, RedGard may be eligible for Custom’s industry leading Lifetime Warranty.
