Can I use the laticrete waterproof 6" membrane fabric in the wall to floor corners with this product?

Hydroban eliminates the need for any fabric in the field, coves, or corners. The 6'' membrane fabric will not be necessary if you choose to use the Laticrete Hydroban to waterproof the area.

Can this be sprayed on?

And is this something that would act as an appropriate sealant for a metal ceiling and girders in a damp basement area?

Yes, this can be sprayed on, however, there are certain steps you need to take to assure it works correctly. Please reference the manual here.

Though the Hydroban will bond to metals, we don't recommend it's use anywhere other than a tiled application.

For a temp. wall at a shopping center (2-3 year lifespan) Is this product recommended for an outdoor wall exposed to the elements when applied directly to plywood?
