LATICRETE Releases New Liquid Rubber Anti-Fracture Polymer, FRACTURE BAN™ SC

LATICRETE Releases New Liquid Rubber Anti-Fracture Polymer, FRACTURE BAN™ SC

August 25, 2020, Bethany, Conn. -- LATICRETE, a leading manufacturer of
globally proven construction solutions for the building industry, has launched
FRACTURE BAN™ SC, a thin, load-bearing, self-curing liquid rubber polymer that
can be easily applied in a single coat to form a flexible seamless anti-fracture
membrane. FRACTURE BAN SC is rapid drying and cures between one and two hours,
increasing productivity and reducing downtime for installers. As a
single-component, single coat material, it also decreases strain on inventory as
it requires less material to complete a project. FRACTURE BAN SC can be applied
directly to tile, brick and stone without the need for fabric, providing
anti-fracture protection of up to 1/8 inch (3 millimeters) over shrinkage and
other non-structural cracks.

“The durability and ease of use that FRACTURE BAN SC provides makes it a
valuable resource for contractors needing a quick anti-fracture solution without
compromising quality. Possessing rapid-curing technology, coupled with the
ability to be applied in a single coat, this new anti-fracture membrane
effectively shortens installation time and aids construction professionals
working with compressed schedules and controlled jobsite access in the midst of
a pandemic,” said Dustin Prevete, LATICRETE Senior Product Manager. “FRACTURE
BAN SC is also equipped with Microban® Antimicrobial Protection, fulfilling a
growing demand in the construction industry for materials that inhibit the
growth of microbes including bacteria, mold and mildew.”

Useful for a variety of horizontal substrates, both interior and exterior,
FRACTURE BAN SC can be used for a variety of residential and commercial
applications and is useful for terraces and balconies overlooking unoccupied
spaces. The product enhances surface durability with “extra heavy” service
rating per Tile Council of North America (TCNA) performance levels and exceeds
ANSI A118.12 standards. Requiring only a thin, single-coat application with a
wet thickness of 30 to 44 mils (0.8 to 1.2 millimeters), the membrane cures at
only 0.02 to 0.03 inches (0.5 to 0.8 millimeters) thick. As a design feature,
FRACTURE BAN SC changes in color from a light blue to darker blue when cured.
