- Now apply the first coat of LATICRETE® Hydroban over the entire surface to be waterproofed, going back over the areas where pre-application of Hydroban is done.
- Allow the membrane to dry for 2-3 hours.
- When membrane is dry to touch, spread a second and top coat of LATICRETE® Hydroban over the entire surface including the pre-treated areas.
