SEAL BEACH, CA -- Custom® Building Products, a provider of performance-driven stone and tile installation systems in North America, recently announced technology improvements to RedGard® Waterproofing and Crack Prevention Membrane. RedGard is a ready-to-use elastomeric membrane for both commercial and residential tile and stone installations. Long regarded as a preferred underlayment solution for industry leaders due to its high performance and ease of use, RedGard now cures 30% faster, and is even easier to apply than before.

"Professionals have relied on RedGard for many years, because of its reliability, performance and ease of use," said Ryan Brausa, Product Manager for Custom Building Products. "Easier application and reduced cure times allow contractors to flood test and set tile sooner -- saving time, effort and money on the jobsite." RedGard is suited for both interior and exterior substrates and meets ANSI standards A118.10 for waterproofing and A118.12 for crack isolation.

It creates a waterproofing barrier with outstanding adhesion, and significantly reduces crack submission in tile and stone floors. RedGard -- when used in a system with qualifying Custom products -- may be eligible for Custom's Lifetime Warranty, reports the manufacturer.
