Blue Seal™ Waterproof Rubber Flooring Membrane

 

Blue Seal™ has been specifically formulated to provide positive waterproofing for residential and commercial flooring applications such as bathrooms, kitchens and basements, where floor surfaces may come into contact with moisture and water. Blue Seal™ can be used on concrete, cement backer board, wood, exterior grade plywood, parking decks and many other common substrates. Blue Seal™ is not intended for use as a final exposed or wearing surface.

The application of Stone Mason® E.Z. Flow Self-Levelling Cement, flooring cements, or other sub-flooring is required to achieve a level surface prior to the application of final floor toppings such as ceramic tile, stone, vinyl or rubber tile, strip wood and parquet. Blue Seal™ is ideal for use as a shower pan liner.
