Tile & Shower


Bathroom and shower Application Instructions


Step One

Apply a base coat of Blue Max® Liquid Rubber. This will be used used to embed contouring fabric in the next step.


Step Two

Roll Contouring Roof Fabric™ into wet coating until the coating comes up through the fabric and saturates it. This is best done by laying the roll of fabric down and pushing it forward into the wet coating with a push broom or roller, excess coating will come up through the fabric. Avoid folds and wrinkles. Roll out the next course of fabric and repeat this process until the entire surface is covered in fabric. Allow to dry completely (24-48 hours).


Step Three

Apply an additional coat of Blue Max® over the surface to completely seal and fill all remaining pinhole openings in the fabric.

Once this top coat is dry, you can apply Ames Liquid Granite® for a beautifying waterproof finish or apply grout and tiles as you would normally.

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.

Estimated Coverage:

We recommend three gallons per 100 square feet for water containment. No shaking or stirring prior to use. 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). Two coats minimum, three to four is superior. More coats equal longer life. Rough surfaces will require additional product and drying time.

Weather & Drying Guidelines:

Both Ames® Blue Max® is best applied between 50° to 90° F (10° to 32° C) on warm dry surfaces. For exterior applications apply when the streets are dry, the sun is in the sky and no inclement weather is forecast. Starts to dry in 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on thickness of application and weather. It continues to cure for up to 2 weeks. A slight tack is normal after drying. Ames® Blue Max® may be recoated or top coated when it is dry to the touch. Low temperatures, high humidity and evening and morning dew will require increased drying/curing time.

Clean-up, Storage, and Disposal:

Clean tools and small spills with water. Store unused product in its original container, tightly sealed and protected from freezing. Dispose of this product in accordance with local, state, or federal requirements.
