  1. Blue Max worked great in my basement. Review by Chris
    Overall Product Rating

    Purchased Blue Max a year ago and sprayed it on my basement walls. No problems since. Great product. (Posted on 1/15/2017)

  2. Excellent Review by SEC
    Overall Product Rating

    I have applied two coats in the basement laundry area. We have had rain since and basement is dry. Also used the seam tape along the bottom of the wall and floor. Applied the coats very thickly and still have half a container. Can't wait to do the rest of the walls in the basement. (Posted on 10/24/2016)

  3. Worked great on new home construction. Review by Jimmy
    Overall Product Rating

    I rolled on the first coating and sprayed on the second coating using a rented Graco 5900 w/ a 0531 tip. Spraying it was SUPER easy. I was concerned about that and no review I could find seemed to indicate how well spraying it would go. It also cleaned up easily enough so that I got my deposit for the sprayer back from the paint shop.

    I'm not done with the house yet so I can't speak to the longevity of it, but all other reviews I've seen indicate that it'll work out just fine. (Posted on 8/9/2016)

    our basement wall leaked all the time, we even got mold and had floods. Got rid of the mold applied this product and it is great, we have gone 2 years with no leaks.

  6. Only thing that worked! Review by Basement nightmare
    Overall Product Rating

    My basement leaked every since I moved into my house. We have tried every product out there and they all had the same results.. didn't work! We applied 2 coats of Blue Max and had our first winter with it and it hasn't leaked at all. I would highly recommend this product for basements. The customer service when I called in was fantastic as well! (Posted on 5/9/2016)

Preparation: 
Ames’® Be sure surfaces are clean and dry before the coating application. Read all label instructions before beginning. Always run a test patch first in an inconspicuous area to ensure that proper adhesion and drying occurs and the product works to your satisfaction. Caulk all cracks greater than 1/8" wide with Ames' Blue Max trowel-grade. Surfaces with joints, cracks, or where two unlike surfaces come together, require Ames'® Peel & Stick Seam Tape (PS250, PS450 or PS650) to provide some additional strength and reinforcement. Prime all surfaces generously with Ames' Blue Max prior to setting the Seam Tape in place. Apply a liberal topcoat of Ames' Blue Max over the Seam Tape and allow to cure. Ames' Blue Max does not need a primer.

These are general application guidelines. Various factors including climate, condition and age of the surface factor into the application technique. That is why we offer a Toll Free Technical help line Monday to Friday. Please call with any questions before you begin your project – 1-888-345-0809. The surface must be clean, dry, and free of loose material. Fill all joints or cracks wider than 1/8 inch with Ames'® Blue Max Trowel- Grade. It is important to seam tape all joints and cracks to avoid future cracking and leaking. Ames' Blue Max may be brushed, rolled or sprayed. We recommend three gallons per 100 square feet for water containment. The application must be applied in a continuous, unbroken seal of a minimum dry thickness of no less than 30 mils (the thickness of a dime).

Ames’® Blue Max™ can be applied with a paint brush, a push broom, a low nap roller with a long handle or a Commercial Airless Sprayer.

Graco, Bulldog or Titan work well. Call for specific specification.
