-- Must not be installed in the ground unless it reaches all the way to the weeping tiles.
-- High compression strength.
-- Water travels along the fibers very easily reaching the end of the sheet without penetrating very deeply, so it is useful as both an insulating and a drainage aid. Stops water and all salts and chemicals from reaching the basement wall, diverting them directly to the weeping tiles.
-- Exterior basement walls and flat-top roofs.
