Yes it is applied hot, and you do need a different pot than what the felt roofers use.
Maybe the Pilgrims forgot to take one on the boat

Cement Slab moisture proof?


Hello All :-) I've gotten so much information that I'm now confused??? Should I put something on the Slab to bring down the 25% moisture reading?? Or should I just put down carpet with a pad that does not have a moisture barrier on it? Then the carpet over it. This house had carpet on the Slab for 15 years, and when pulled up it had no mold??? Just a lot of white salt on the slab?? Is letting the carpet breath the only solution??? Tks, Bob

Cement Slab moisture proof?


http://www.cimline.com/pages/magma-110.html - these are what we used for hgwy jnt/crk sealing,,, occasionally we'd get jobs from roofers or gc's in the city - mostly rooftop gardens & pool stuff on hi-rises,,, ga just bought 3 for some district maint sheds,,, google astm 1190 or astm 3405 for the mtl we used,,, merry Christmas !
