Liquid Rubber in Australia
Liquid rubber is the general name given to a number of waterproofing products which can be either spray, brush or roller applied. The product originated in Canada and has become a very popular solution for domestic and commercial waterproofing applications in Australia mainly due to its simplicity of substrate preparation, coating application and watertight effectiveness. Its popularity has attracted nasty imitators without testing or Quality Assurance systems which prospective purchasers should be very wary of.
Being a popular product, Liquid Rubber has attracted cheap imitations which do not work as a high build brush-able or spray-able coating like the original; they do not have official potable approval to Australian standards or material safety data sheets and have even copied this documentation as if their own products pass the standards.
For these reasons, if you are considering purchasing liquid rubber or commissioning contractors to install it, ensure that they source their product from Canada rather than an UN-potable, untested imitating company.
