New Product: 4EvaSeal Tapes now available!

4EvaSeal™ is a one step, easy to use, repair tape that is available in a variety of different forms depending on application. Our tapes have the most aggressive elastomeric polymer adhesive on the market today. Once installed these materials form a permanent seal that is impermeable to water and water vapor.

4EvaSeal™ Tapes should be specified where a permanent seal is needed on the building envelope. Use the tapes in conjunction with CIM materials for the ultimate waterproofing system.

4EvaSeal can be used in conjunction with CIM for:

  • Sealing seams and joints as an alternative to CIM Scrim Fabric. Use 4EvaSeal Fabric Backed Tape.
  • Increased protection and improved aesthetic where vertical flashings are exposed at deck to wall transitions. Use 4EvaSeal Multi-Purpose Tape or Aluminum tape where an aluminum finish is desired.
  • Sealing between materials where a gasket or self-sealing material is needed. Use 4EvaSeal Double Sided Tape. The double sided tape can also be molded to fill gaps as well.

EvaSeal™’s original pressure sensitive sealant technology is so advanced that it bonds permanently to almost every substrate. 4EvaSeal™ is ideal for sealing gutters, skylights, flashings, copings, windows, doors, HVAC ducts, single ply roofs, RVs, roofs, campers, trailers, seams, and much more.

CIM 1000 Featured in DIY Yard Crashers

CIM 1000 was used to coat a backyard fountain in the Season 5 Episode 11 “Colonial Hillside Redo”.

The “Crasher” crew takes a unused backyard and creates a 10-foot brick fountain with metal basin. A 5-gallon unit of the CIM 1000 was used to waterproof and protect the metal basin ( some of our standard C.I.M. application procedures were not followed ;^) ).

New Coating Approvals

CIM is now approved by the International Building Code (IBC), Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC) and ANSI Root Growth Test.

For over 40 years we have lead the way with our industry leading technology. We manufacture a coating that is high solid and low order , bonds to a variety of substrates including asphalt, is VOC compliant, able to handle ponding water and is easily applied. CIM is ideal for use as a waterproofing system under ceramic tiles, pavers, vegetation or dimensional stone.

The new approvals give our coatings a competitive edge in more applications such as fountains, pool, shower pans, plaza decks, balconies, planter boxes and green roofs.

Check out our new approvals and see how CIM can be the right solution for your waterproofing needs.
