What is Ames'® Blue Max®?
Ames'® Blue Max® is a special blend of
adhesive, high strength elastomeric liquid rubber.
It is a new, impenetrable, rubber technology for waterproofing
in extreme wet situations such as flat roofs, below
grade foundations, basement walls, cisterns, water
troughs, catch basins, ponds and fountains. It is
high in solids and dries to a tough 800% elastic membrane
that resists cracking and peeling. Blue Max remains flexible from -30° to 150° F. Ames' Blue Max is impervious to water when applied in a uniform and
seamless fashion with adequate millage. It flows into
cracks and crevices as a liquid and sets up as a durable
rubber to seal leaks wherever they occur. Ames' Blue Max is available in a thick trowel-grade for use as a
filler, and a heavy duty sprayable grade. It dries
to a translucent blue color.
Ames' Blue Max is also an excellent coating for
ICF (insulated concrete forms), as well as metal,
wood, concrete, and many other applications. The adhesive
qualities in Ames' Blue Max actually glue surfaces
together and strengthen wall construction. Ames' Blue Max out performs isocyanate urethanes, and works well
as a primer and waterproofing membrane for Ames’
products such as Ames'® Safe-T-Deck™, Ames'® Snow Seal®, Ames'® Maximum-Stretch™,
Ames'® Block & Wall™, Ames'® Iron Coat™ and many other coatings.
Ames' Blue Max must be top coated for UV protection
in exterior applications.
This coating is waterbase and contains no petroleum.
It is non-toxic, VOC-free, low odor, and environmentally
friendly. It can be used as a potable water coating.
Ames' Blue Max is easy to apply ~ simply roll, brush
or spray. Clean up with water.
