An elastomeric coating uses acrylic chemistry modified to be flexible. This flexibility allows the coating to stretch, bridging hairline cracks that are common in concrete and masonry surfaces. Elastomeric coatings are typically applied at a higher mil thickness than most paints.
Concrete, stucco, concrete masonry units and other masonry substrates are ridged by design. Hairline cracks develop because of freeze/thaw cycles, movement caused by settling, and physical impact. Once a crack develops water and environmental contaminants have a pathway which can lead to costly repairs. The combination of a waterproof membrane with crack bridging capabilities is well suited to rigid structures.
