Mapelastic AquaDefense

New color with improved
visibility for chalk lines

Lighter color that’s great for viewing chalk lines

Quick-drying: Install tile after 30 to 50 minutes of drying time

Bonds to a wide range of surfaces

No odor: Great for confined spaces

MAPEI’s Mapelastic AquaDefense, the industry’s trusted premium waterproofing and crack-isolation membrane, has become even better. We’ve lightened the color to provide better visibility for chalk layout lines.

The advanced technology of the quick-drying, liquid-rubber formula remains the same. Only the color has changed to provide easier visibility for chalk lines on poorly lighted jobsites.

Mapelastic AquaDefense

Premium Waterproofing and Crack-Isolation Membrane

Mapelastic AquaDefense is a premixed, advanced liquid-rubber, extremely quick-drying waterproofing and crack-isolation membrane for installation under ceramic tile or stone in residential, commercial and industrial environments. Mapelastic AquaDefense provides a thin, continuous barrier to protect adjacent rooms and floors below from water damage. For common problem areas like coves, corners, cracks and drains, it can be combined with MAPEI’s optional Reinforcing Fabric or Mapeband™ accessories (cove roll and drain flash) to provide additional protection. Mapelastic AquaDefense dries after about 30 to 50 minutes and is then ready to receive any MAPEI polymer or epoxy mortar. Mapelastic AquaDefense can be flood-tested after 12 hours of drying time, is IAPMO-listed for use as a shower-pan liner, and exceeds ANSI A118.10 and ANSI A118.12 standards.
