BondTAC™ 1500 is a specially formulated hydrophobic (waterproof & water repellant), elastomeric membrane and adhesive coating ideally suited for residential and commercial waterproofing applications.
BondTAC 1500 is specifically designed to provide a permanent waterproof and vapor proof barrier. BondTAC can be used to create a water barrier coating on both interior and exterior masonry walls, such as concrete block walls – using BondTAC to adhere drainage board, or to bond a heavy sheet membrane – without penetrating fasteners – to foundation walls, in order to meet code requirements for below-grade overall protective barrier thickness. BondTAC is both truly elastomeric and retains the memory of its original application surface. What this means is that if the surface that BondTAC is applied to cracks or shifts, the BondTAC coating will stretch with it without losing its waterproofing and air & vapor barrier abilities. BondTAC is commonly used during shower construction. Instead of using backerboard or cement board, regular gypsum drywall can be used, with two coats of BondTAC protecting it. Tile mastic & adhesives adhere extremely well to the BondTAC membrane – then simply tile and grout.
FEATURES & BENEFITS

- Easily applied at normal & low temperatures
- Flexible – will not crack or peel
- Paintable – can be used under water-based decorative paint finishes. Not to be used with oil-based paints.
WHERE TO USE
BondTAC™ 1500 may be applied to interior surfaces, such as basement walls and floors and exterior cavity walls to prevent air infiltration, vapor transmission and water penetration.
Use 1500 on exterior and interior concrete and concrete block walls to protect from moisture and water infiltration where exterior application is not readily accessible. Surface must be dry at time of application.
BondTAC™ must penetrate a dry, porous surface in order to prevent further moisture and water infiltration.
Apply coating to masonry, concrete, cement board, gypsum board, all exterior sheathing boards, such as Dens Glass® and glass-mat sheathing, aluminum, steel, wood substrates, roofing components and shingles; window and door framing and sills to produce a water & vapor barrier.
BondTAC™ 1500 may be used as a waterproofing adhesive membrane for concrete, stone and other multipurpose applications where the use of an elastic waterproofing membrane is required to permanently stop and prevent water penetration of surfaces subject to hairline cracks.
BondTAC™ 1500 provides an excellent crack isolation barrier for shower enclosures, shower pans and tub surrounds. It may also be used as an excellent primer for self-adhesive air & vapor barrier membranes, systems or components over porous and non-porous substrates and as a primer to enhance the adhesion of silicone and polyurethane sealants.
BondTAC™ 1500 may be used to adhere virtually any substrate to each other, including, laps of polyethylene sheets, housewraps, wood, metal, gypsum board and most other construction materials. See the section on limitations.
BondTAC™ 1500 may also be used as a corrosion protective primer for all metal components, fasteners, sheet metal, etc. In applications where a topcoat finish is desirable, any protective coating may be used with the following exception: Oil-based enamels and varnishes are not suitable with BondTAC™ waterproofing products.
When dry, this product’s adhesive characteristics will allow it to be used to adhere rigid polystyrene insulation to sheathing boards, concrete and other surfaces.
Available in 5-gallon (18.9L) pails, 1-gallon (3.785L) cans and 1-quart (946ml)
