Reinforcing fabric vs elastoproof joint band – what’s the difference?
Today I'm going to talk about Gripset RF Fabric and our Elastoproof Joint Band. The discussion has come up of recent times, where we've been asked why we don’t recommend the RF Fabric at all floor junctions, even though you can use it, and we have seen people using it with membranes with a sealant bond breaker. But I might have to go back in time to explain how we evolved with this one.
Are bitumen products still the go to products in waterproofing?
When we started Gripset, we were pioneers in using bitumen technology and we were one of the first companies that had developed water-based bitumen technology and using with polymers. Now that's such a commodity-based system now, it's been bastardized, but back in the mid-80s it was fairly innovative and very, very different.
Liquid v cementitious in cooler conditions
The cooler months present many challenges for waterproofing. Many of you may say that your clients don't realize that, they just want you to get over there and do the job whatever the conditions are. But you cannot battle with the Gods, and so when the weather starts to become colder and damper and wetter, you are restricted in what you can use.
