20,000 sq ft Arena in Swift Current, SK
A small community Ice Arena's metal roof has leaked for years and years. The owners got used to the drips until they learned of a solution that fit within their budget to become leak free. The roof structure was first cleaned of any contamination and loose rust. Fasteners were tightened and/or replaced, then sealed with a brush application of Liquid Rubber MetalSafe A-205. Liquid Rubber Seam Tape was then used to bridged joints, gaps, seams, skylights, and protrusions. 3 coats of Liquid Rubber MetalSafe A-205 were then applied to achieve a final dry film thickness of 30 mil.
3000 sq. ft. Concrete Foundation, Ontario
The customer wanted a safe to use, thick, controllable waterproof membrane that can be applied in one application, as time was of the essence in construction. They also wanted an improvement over conventional solvent based damp proofing. Liquid Rubber CreteSafe InstaSet B-100 is a self-healing, fully adhered, "instant setting" waterproof membrane that can be applied to the correct thickness in one application. It is cold applied, containing no VOC's or solvents making work conditions safe. Provides a waterproof membrane that completely stops water infiltration as opposed to damp proofing which only slows water infiltration.

28,000 sq ft Residential Concrete Deck
Being constructed in the suburb of Morningside in Johannesburg South Africa this US $10,000,000 house features a 10-car garage, movie theatre and bowling alley in addition to a very non-traditional architectural design. The architect and contractor selected Liquid Rubber SealSafe InstaSet B-200 because the geometric design of the roof required a flexible, seamless membrane that could adhere to the odd angles and shapes while withstanding the temperature fluctuations without cracking. The potential for pooling water in the odd shaped corners made SealSafe InstaSet B-200 and easy and ideal choice for waterproofing the concrete roof.
5000 sq. ft. Torch Down/Mod Bit Roof, Poland
This commercial building needed a cost-effective rejuvenation. The roof was in relatively good shape but was nearing the end of its life. Smartly, the owners wanted to add protection before any large issues appeared. Being UV stable, water-based, containing no solvents, easily applied and cost effective, Liquid Rubber was the clear choice. Liquid Rubber SealSafe S-200 and Seam Tape was used to bridge joints, seams and penetrations. Then Liquid Rubber SealSafe InstaSet B-200 was sprayed in one coat achieving an 80 mil DFT.
7500 sq. ft. Concrete Roof Deck, Johannesburg
East of Johannesburg, the suburban development of Bedfordview is a high-end neighborhood. The region is part of an on-going effort to reinstate this part of Johannesburg to its former cultural and economic glory. The project was a 700 m² flat concrete roof of a two-story dwelling. Typical temperatures are between 5˚C and 28˚C, with rainfall as much as 120 mm per month during winter months. Exposed concrete roofs materials can be damaged. Rainwater leaves behind acids that can cause corrosion and temperature extremes can cause cracking. Our SealSafe InstaSet B-200 has been formulated to withstand such extremes and resist cracking from UV exposure.
90 sq. ft. Living Wall Feature, AB
The homeowner wanted to add a living wall water feature in his home. Due to the complex intricate structure, a seamless, liquid applied coating that could conform to the various shapes was be the solution but since it was and interior application it needed to be a product that did not contain solvents or VOC’s that would release noxious fumes in the home. The owner realized Liquid Rubber was the solution. Liquid Rubber SealSafe S-200 was applied in 4 coats over the entire surface.
172,000 sq. ft. Swine Manure Containment
The concrete tanks were extremely fractured as improper construction caused failures in the concrete. Each tank contains liquid and solid swine manure; which is extremely acidic and corrosive.Liquid Rubber MetalSafe InstaSet B-300 was spray applied with our HVLP2000 at a thickness of 80 mil or 2 mm. The instant set system allowed for minimal downtime and a quick turnaround for the project. No degradation of the coating has occurred from the harsh hydrogen sulphide attack. The Ministry of Environment inspected the site and the final project is performing exceptionally well.
600 sq. ft. Pond Build, AB
An intricately designed pond was developed to bring out a modern flair to a renovation project. Conventional pond membranes were not possible due to the curved portion of the design. Liquid Rubber Seam Tape and Liquid Rubber Geo-Textile Reinforcing Fabric was used to bridge the seams of the plywood panels. Then Liquid Rubber SealSafe S-200 was applied in 5 coats and allowed to cure for 1 week before being filled with water.
108,000 sq. ft. Pre-Cast Concrete at Landfill Site, Hamilton
To apply a chemical resistant coating to precast concrete pieces that were subjected to sulphuric acid and hydrogen sulphide gas. Liquid Rubber MetalSafe InstaSet B-300 was spray applied with our HVLP2000 at a thickness of 80 mil or 2 mm, to over 10,000 square meters of precast concrete. The HVLP2000 instant set system allowed for the entire membrane thickness to be applied in one pass resulting in minimal downtime and a quick turnaround for the project.
12 km Pipeline
Above ground pipelines are often exposed to severe weather conditions leading to accelerated corrosion and premature loss of service life. Located in a remote area and region of Venezuela, this 12km pipeline needed a protective corrosion membrane applied in an efficient manner. MetalSafe InstaSet B-300 was chosen because of its ability of minimal surface preparation (can be applied over light rust layers). Has excellent resistance to UV degradation. The membrane will not burn if exposed to high temperatures. It’s environmentally safe. Quick and easy to apply in harsh environments.
1000 sq. ft. Concrete Silo Roof, Chennai
The old bitumen waterproofing had come to the end of it’s life and was beginning to fail. A new long-term solution was needed. The owners had settled on Liquid Rubber SealSafe S-200 due to it’s lower cost and ease of installation.The contractor first had to remove the old bitumen system, and inspect the rooftop for cracks and entry routes, then detail and reinforce these area’s using Liquid Rubber Geo-Textile applied via our 3-course-method. Five coats of Liquid Rubber SealSafe S-200 was applied to achieve a 60-mil (DFT) membrane that was top coated with quartz sand. A new concrete overlay was then installed.
