Sheet Membrane - Mositure Barrier image

Sheet Membrane - Mositure Barrier - VersaShield®

VersaShield® flooring materials protect concrete floors in the highest-traffic environments, such as hospitals and retail stores. Their triple-layer construction enables the easy installation of all kinds of surfaces, including:
  • Carpet, vinyl and ceramic tile
  • Porcelain
  • Natural stone
  • Nearly every type of popular carpet
  • Engineered wood, bamboo and laminates

VersaShield® moisture barriers save you time and money because they're easy to install. Just roll onto the surface, tape the seams, cut in and you're done.

Our underlayments' superior dimensional stability simplifies installation because they lay flat on concrete. Unlike with epoxy, you can install VersaShield products overnight and be back in business the next morning.

Synthetic Macro-Fibers image

Synthetic Macro-Fibers - STRUX®

Welded wire mesh has long been used to reinforce slab-on-ground concrete, bridge decks and thin-walled precast applications for temperature and shrinkage crack control. Although mesh provides adequate performance, it adds many downsides. The mesh takes time to transport, install and correctly chair.
Concrete Shrinkage-Reducing Admixtures image

Concrete Shrinkage-Reducing Admixtures - Eclipse®

Eclipse® is a liquid admixture that dramatically reduces drying shrinkage and the potential for cracking and curling in full or partially restrained concrete flooring and paving. Eclipse® products reduce the surface tension of pore water. Indoors or outdoors, on-grade or above, Eclipse® shuts down shrinking, cracks and curling while increasing durability, lowering maintenance costs and extending structure service life. Leading the innovation in this area since 1997, GCP continues to invest to bring new solutions for crack reduction in concrete.

Pre-Applied Waterproofing Solutions image

Pre-Applied Waterproofing Solutions - Preprufe®

Preprufe® utilizes GCP's Advanced Bond Technology to create a continuous, integral and permanent adhesive bond to concrete. Leaks from groundwater, storm water runoff or irrigation water may impact the foundation of any building that's improperly waterproofed - and when concrete is involved, there any number of ways that water can travel into and around a structure.
Post-Applied Waterproofing image

Post-Applied Waterproofing - Bituthene®

Bituthene® is available in a number of grades to suit your project needs. Supplied as an easily applied sheet, it can be cold-applied at temperatures as low as 25°F and can be placed on a variety of concrete surfaces.

Flexible Waterproofing for Concrete Joints image

Flexible Waterproofing for Concrete Joints - Waterstops

Waterstops represent a critical component of any waterproofing system. Due to shrinkage and settling, the surfaces of a concrete cold joint will never perfectly conform to one another. Without a flexible barrier that can accommodate the imperfections of concrete surfaces, water will have the opportunity to creep in through the seam.
