Henry Introduces Elasto-Seal® CM100
Henry Company is introducing Elasto-Seal® CM100, a new fast curing, one component waterproofing compound as a cold alternative to hot applied rubberized waterproofing membrane systems.
"Elasto-Seal® CM100 provides the water proofing contractor with an innovative and efficient alternative to hot applied rubberized waterproofing. It offers an excellent sustainable alternative to traditional hot applied waterproofing solutions and continues the trend towards new environmentally friendly construction products, which is accelerating at this time," said Tim Callahan, senior vice president, New Products Development. "We are excited that this and our other new technologies allow us to build buildings better."
The new Elasto-Seal® CM100 is a cold-applied fluid, moisture curing waterproofing membrane. It is applied in a high build two-ply system or single ply application. The innovative membrane system cures through reaction with atmospheric moisture to provide a "heavy-duty" seamless, rubber-like impervious membrane. It has excellent adhesion to most construction surfaces and is easy to use in small, confined spaces or "hard-to-get-at" applications. It is easily applied with a squeegee or roller, and is designed for vertical or horizontal substrates. It also has the ability to build thickness and to be applied in serveral thick multi-coat layers in the same day.
While other cold-applied alternatives exist, most cold-applied systems contain a minimum of 10% solvents. Such products have noxious odors and are often flammable. They also can have a very slow cure rate and can be difficult to apply in multiple layers.
The new Elasto-Seal® CM100 formula is solvent free, with no offensive odors, very low volatile chemicals, and a very fast cure (3 hours). It has a high solids content (97%), bonds to "green" concrete, and is non-flammable and non-hazardous.
Henry Elasto-Seal® CM100 meets ASTM C836 and has excellent limited warranties for single ply and high build systems.
