Company History

At Laurenco Waterproofing, a division of FBC Chemical, our goal is to manufacture the highest quality waterproofing goods in the most timely, competitive and courteous way to help make our customers and suppliers successful. FBC Chemical is a third generation, family owned and operated corporation, started by Lad Hudac in 1967. Since it’s founding, FBC has diversified into asphalt manufacturing in addition to chemical distribution, and currently we employ over 70 workers. In 2013, FBC purchased the intellectual rights to manufacture and market the Laurenco Waterproofing System.

The Laurenco Waterproofing System is a premier, cold-applied, bituminous waterproofing system that delivers a monolithic polymer-enhanced barrier. It has a proven 60+ year track record, making it the single longest lasting continuously marketed waterproofing system on the market.

The system was developed in 1955 by Dorothy and Jon Lawrence to find a safer way to waterproof without the use of hot kettles. With their chemistry and physics backgrounds, they were able to create a cold-applied waterproofing membrane that not only lived up to the waterproofing expectations of cold tar pitch, but flat-out exceeded them.

With its flexibility and versatile nature, it can be used on a wide variety of projects including, but not limited to, green roofs, building foundations, plaza decks, tunnels, dams, power plants, etc. Because it is cold applied, there are no temperature limitations/restrictions and no dangerous working conditions for crews, unlike with hot applied products. This system will work until -40 degrees F. There is no odor and no need to invest in heavy and expensive equipment. All you need is a roll, a pail, a utility knife and a flat-edge squeegee. In addition to the ease of application, the product meets all VOC and ASTM regulations and can be sold in all 50 states.

At FBC Chemical, we are dedicated to servicing your waterproofing needs with the utmost quality and care to help you save on time and labor. If you have any specific questions and would like to talk to a company representative, please give us a call at (800) 321-3337.
