Fracture Ban SC

Bethany, Conn.—Laticrete, a leading manufacturer of globally proven construction solutions for the building industry, has launched Fracture Ban SC, a thin, load-bearing, self-curing liquid rubber polymer that can be easily applied in a single coat to form a flexible seamless anti-fracture membrane.

“The durability and ease of use that Fracture Ban SC provides makes it a valuable resource for contractors needing a quick anti-fracture solution without compromising quality,” said Dustin Prevete, Laticrete senior product manager. “Possessing rapid-curing technology, coupled with the ability to be applied in a single coat, this new anti-fracture membrane effectively shortens installation time and aids construction professionals working with compressed schedules and controlled jobsite access in the midst of a pandemic.”

Fracture Ban SC is rapid drying and cures between one and two hours. It is a single-component, single-coat material, and can be applied directly to tile, brick and stone without the need for fabric, providing anti-fracture protection of up to 1/8-inch over shrinkage and other non-structural cracks. The product is also equipped with Microban antimicrobial protection, fulfilling a growing demand in the construction industry for materials that inhibit the growth of microbes including bacteria, mold and mildew, Prevete said.

Useful for a variety of horizontal substrates, both interior and exterior, Fracture Ban SC can be used for a variety of residential and commercial applications and is useful for terraces and balconies overlooking unoccupied spaces. As a design feature, Fracture Ban SC changes in color from a light blue to darker blue when cured.

The product enhances surface durability with “extra heavy” service rating per Tile Council of North America (TCNA) performance levels and exceeds ANSI A118.12 standards. Requiring only a thin, single-coat application with a wet thickness of 30 to 44-mils, the membrane cures at only 0.02 to 0.03 inches thick.
