April 14, 2018
Floor Waterproof Membrane
Barrier-Guard Waterproofing Membrane is an exceptional copolymer emulsion waterproofing designed for use beneath ceramic tile, marble, quarry tile, below grade and between slab, and under most Dex-O-Tex composition floor and deck systems. It complies with ANSI 118.10 as a waterproof membrane.

Barrier-Guard Waterproofing Membrane offers protection against water and water borne salt intrusion, together with excellent adhesion. It is applied to horizontal and vertical concrete substrates, bricks, tile and metal. For wood surfaces consult Crossfield.

Barrier-Guard Waterproofing Membrane is water-based and totally free of volatile organic content. It has no toxic odor and can be applied with or without fabric reinforcement.

The thickness of Barrier-Guard Waterproofing Membrane is a minimum of 40 mils (1.02mm) for standard applications and 62 mils (1.59 mm) with polypropylene fabric reinforced.

Where to Use

Use Barrier-Guard as waterproof membrane directly under seamless composition floors (Dex-O-Tex or other), ceramic tile, quarry tile, marble, etc. For application as a mechanical equipment room waterproofing or computer access floor waterproofing, below grade, or between slab applications, consult separate Crossfield specifications for those uses.
