Arc Inc. TANK/10 Waterproofing Compound

TANK/10® Waterproofing is a ready-to-use liquid paste latex waterproofing and anti-fracture membrane formulated for use under commercial and residential tile and stone for interior and exterior applications. TANK/10® provides a continuous moisture barrier and, due to its elastomeric properties, reduces the risk of cracks transferring from substrate materials to hard surface flooring.

Features and Characteristics:

  • Forms a continuous, seamless waterproof membrane for protection of surfaces from moisture penetration
  • Provides anti-fracture protection for tile and stone decorative coverings
  • 3-year shelf life in unopened, unused, factory sealed, original container when stored in a dry area with temperatures between 40° and 110°
  • TANK/10® will remain stable through two freeze-thaw cycles. Blend material with mixing paddle after thawing — do not add water
  • Dries in one to three hours, depending on humidity, air flow, and temperature (accelerate drying by running a dehumidifier and/or fans in the room)
  • Tile or stone may be applied after TANK/10® achieves a noticeably darker shade of gray and feels dry to the touch
  • Allow membrane to cure for a minimum of 12 hours before conducting water tests
  • Coverage: 50-60 square feet per gallon for waterproofing (two-coat applications); 100-120 square feet per gallon for anti-fracture membrane only (one-coat applications)
  • Apply with paint brush, paint roller, or trowel
  • Allow each full coat to dry completely before applying another coat
  • Best to apply each coat with strokes that are perpendicular to the prior coat to ensure 100% coverage
  • Clean up with warm water and soap while compound remains wet
  • Modified thinset mortar recommended for tile and stone installations on top of compound

Surface Preparation:

  • Surfaces must be structurally sound, clean, dry, and free of contaminants
  • Use an appropriate solvent to remove silicone, oil, and other contaminants
  • Remove dust and debris with a damp sponge and wipe dry with a cloth
  • Substrates must be completely dry when applying waterproofing
  • Fill voids with latex caulk (do not use silicone) or thinset mortar
  • Apply TANK/10® when surface termperature of the substrate is between 34° and 105°
  • Before coating smooth or glossy surfaces, scarify with 100 grit sandpaper

  • Cementitious backer board
  • Concrete (except sealed concrete)
  • Gypcrete
