What Do Roofers Need To Know About Elastathane 25?

Friday, 20th March 2015

What is Elastathane 25?

Elastathane 25 is a smart liquid membrane that provides waterproofing and protection for a range of flat surfaces. It's manufactured by Cromar Building Products, the company that brought you the very popular PRO GRP fibreglass roofing.

Cromar has created a precise balance of membrane and accelerator that provides a fast curing, bubble-free thick layer membrane. The accelerator is incorporated in a "block fashion", which means when the liquid comes into contact with humidity, the accelerrator is released and self-accelerates the curing process.

This unique formulation cures the product rapidly to form a 100% defect free roofing membrane with excellent mechanical and elastic properties.
