Trinseo offers a portfolio of latex products designed specifically to meet membrane barrier performance requirements for Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS) and waterproofing. Two primary performance standards for waterproof membranes are ANSI 118.10 Hydrostatic Pressure Test (J-tube), and ANSI 118.12 Crack Isolation Test.
The ANSI 118.12 Crack Isolation Test requires large, specialized equipment, limiting its usefulness as a development tool. Trinseo has developed a novel Crack Isolation Test Method that utilizes standard construction materials and lab equipment; employs multiple test specimens; and generates stress-strain data to predict membrane performance.
Webinar participants will benefit from the following information:
- Trinseo’s capabilities and products designed for barrier membranes
- Key requirements and methods for waterproof membranes
- An efficient Crack Isolation Test Method
