MAINTENANCE COST EFFECTIVENESS As against other conventional solutions which normally require scrapping off failed remedies prior to laying fresh materials, liquid plastic does not crack, rot or flake. To this end, scrapping is not necessary in the course of maintenance or when accidentally damaged. The damaged sections are best cut out, brush, and apply fresh liquid plastic on the spot. These basically form an integral part of the old membrane.
