Durabit Reo

water based, polymer emulsion waterproofing membrane which incorporates micro fibres

Durabit Reo is a water-based, polymer emulsion waterproofing membrane which incorporates micro fibres, thereby internally reinforcing the product.

Durabit Reo is a modified Durabit EF membrane with the addition of micro-reinforcing fibres. It meets the criteria of AS4858:2004 Wet Area Membranes.

Durabit Reo is an elastomeric, environmentally friendly membrane designed for both internal and (non-exposed) external applications. It cures to form a durable, odourless, impervious, seamless membrane that resists re-emulsifying after it has fully, even if immersed in water. Durabit Reo, available in white, black, grey and blue, minimum quantities apply, does not stain grout or tiles and has excellent resistance to hydrostatic pressure.

Being internally reinforced, the need for external reinforcing is eliminated, making it easier and quicker to use.


Durabit Reo has been formulated for most waterproofing applications requiring long-term waterproofing and meets the criteria of AS4858:2004 Wet Area Membranes and Contact With Drinking Water Test AS/NZS4020:2002, making it ideal for:

  • Shower recesses & wet areas
