About This Product

Protect and preserve your below grade architectural surfaces (e.g. concrete foundations) using HydroHalt, a high quality water and vapor barrier membrane. HydroHalt's water-based, polymer-modified formula waterproofs and prevents vapor transmission for a variety of (subterranean) surfaces, including concrete, masonry, brick, block, wood and metal. Use HydroHalt to prevent damage and common problems cause by moisture intrusion for foundation infrastructure, walls (both negative and positive side), decks, water retainment structures (e.g. dams) and other applications where excessive moisture is present. HydroHalt is also used in conjunction with mesh or mat materials for repairing cracks, joints and spalled areas. Use as a waterproofing adhesive for protection/insulation board or tile and as a base coat for other water-based surface wearing products.


  • Easily applied by roller, brush or industrial sprayer
  • Medium viscosity, water-based, polymer-modified anionic bituminous/asphalt emulsion with exceptional bonding, elasticity and waterproofing properties

This product works but was in no way shape or form what i was expecting. I was expecting a clear roll on floor vapor sealer. This is thick black tar that stays stickey even after the 24-48 hour " dry time. I dont think i will ever have to worry coming up through the slab its on

Nasty stuff, not sure yet how well it will work
This stuff is nasty. Goes in like a pudding based tar. Smells like tar too. Application is easy enough but it does not leave a smooth surface. Easily glops up. Sticky when it is “dry”. Goes in brown and dries a shiny black.

    I still have leaks after a rainfall. It stopped the majority of the leaks. I applied a second coat, But still getting smaller puddles. I don't know what to do. Do I have to purchase another 5 gallon pucket?

    False info in item description.
    claims to be water based in the item description. Not true. Product claims it can be applied with an industrial sprayer. Also not true. This product destroyed a $2000 industrial sprayer before 1 gallon passed. Nothing cleans it. Doesn't cure.

      Good product. Strong smell. Sticky like tar. We only used a small portion. Wish it would have come in one-gallon size instead of a five-gallon bucket.
