- HYDRO BAN is a thin, load bearing waterproofing/crack isolation membrane that DOES NOT require the use of fabric in the field, coves or corners. HYRDO BAN is a single component,self curing liquid rubber polymer that forms a flexible, seamless waterproofing membrane that bonds directly to a wide variety of substrates. HYRDO BAN features rapid drying time for a faster time to tile, and changes colour from a light sage to an olive green with cured. Click here for more information.
