TUFF-N-DRI® H8 waterproofing membrane introduces a revolutionary new level of protection against foundation wall leaks and seepage.

But what makes a waterproofing membrane most effective?

 Hang Strength

Enables Consistent Cured Membrane Thickness of 40 Mils

TUFF-N-DRI H8 (left) and a competing asphalt emulsion waterproofing product (right) were sprayed on the same foundation wall to a thickness of about 60 mils wet. After 10 minutes, TUFF-N-DRI H8 stayed in place, while the competitor ran down the wall.

 Crack Bridging

Waterproofing Must Resist Hydrostatic Pressure Even When Spanning Cracks in the Foundation Wall

TUFF-N-DRI H8 (tube on left) and a competing waterproofing membrane (tube on right) were applied to identical sets of concrete blocks, then separated by 1/16" to simulate a typical shrinkage crack. A 12" column of water was then placed on the portion of membrane spanning the crack to create hydrostatic head. The competitive product failed at 1 foot of hydrostatic head in less than 10 minutes, while TUFF-N-DRI H8 remained leak-free, even with 8 feet of hydrostatic head.

 Crack Bridging

Proper Membrane Thickness Delivers Reliable Hydrostatic Head Resistance

At 40 mils, TUFF-N-DRI H8 delivers a remarkable 8 feet of hydrostatic head resistance. Competitors provide as little as 12" of hydrostatic resistance, even at 40-mil cured thickness. But with low hang strength, competitors may easily run down the wall and provide less than 40-mil thickness, leaving major portions of the wall unprotected.

TUFF-N-DRI offers a reliable system to control moisture, including water under hydrostatic pressure:

TUFF-N-DRI H8 membrane is spray-applied to a consistent cured thickness of 40 mils for 8 feet of hydrostatic head resistance.
WARM-N-DRI® Foundation Board or TUFF-N-DRI Barrier Board protects the membrane, assists drainage, and insulates basement walls to reduce interior condensation.
