In today’s fast-paced environments, many jobsites require installation materials to set faster in order for the project to continue to move along quickly. Merkrete’s Fracture Guard FD, a fast-drying, liquid-applied crack isolation membrane, allows for same-day tile installations. With its fast drying properties and liquid formula, Fracture Guard FD can be used for interior and exterior applications and conforms to any shape or pattern which allows for all types of architectural design elements. Once two coats of Fracture Guard FD are applied, installers can begin setting tile over it in as little as four hours. Its thin section and excellent elongation will inhibit the transfer of cracks from the substrate to the finished ceramic, porcelain or stone tile finish. Fracture Guard FD can be used in both residential and commercial projects and works best when used with the entire Merkrete Rapid Set system.
