Fortify for Disaster Restoration
Following floods and natural disasters, restorers are pushed beyond capacity as demands on time and labor exceed resources. The need to move quickly and meet insurance carrier and property owner demands can result in structures that don't meet industry dry standards. Fortify allows restorers to maintain pace even if structural moisture content levels are slightly higher than preferred. It's breathability allows for controlled moisture release over time while it's mold and moisture resistant fights condensation, humidity and precipitation issues that may occur prior to build back.

Shelf Life & Storage
*Treated Articles Exemption - This product contains an EPA registered antimicrobial to protect the coating from non-public health fungi and odor causing bacteria. No public health claims are being made.
Fortify forms a breathable yet moisture resistant barrier on structural surfaces to prevent against increases in substrate moisture content whether through exposure to condensation, humidity or rainfall.
Fortify is breathable to prevent against locking in moisture which could lead to wet or dry rot conditions. This works by allowing water vapor to escape from structural surfaces while preventing absorption from the environment.
Our antimicrobial won the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award for Designing Safer Chemistries. It's original marine application for the protection of hulls of sea going vessels to minimize algae growth while maximizing fuel efficiency translates directly to it's structural effectiveness in moisture prone areas, post remediation or in air spaces where condensing moisture is likely from thermal bridging and/or converging but opposite in temperature air masses that induce dew point. It's additional leach resistance capacity ensures a long service life, and it's non-persistence in the environment prevents pollution and liability.
Fortify is built from non-Volatile Organic Compound containing raw materials to prevent against fumes both during and after application.
Easy to Apply
When diluted, Fortify is water thin, making it easy to apply by airless/electric, pump or electrostatic sprayer and fogger.
Easy to Inspect
Transparent protection allows you and your customer (including IEPs or Industrial Hygienists) to see that surfaces have been cleaned without changing the way structural surfaces look
Use and Instructions
Use on structural and construction materials such as treated and untreated lumber, plywood, OSB, particle board, cement board, wallboard, composite construction materials and metals. Probable areas of use are structural surfaces within the building envelope including warm-side sheathing, trusses, framing, joists, plates, pillars, posts, beams, gypsum board and backer board.
Fortify should be applied directly to the surface to the point of saturation but not past the point of run-off. Once diluted, Fortify is a low viscosity sealant. Apply the diluted solution of Fortify with a pump sprayer, fogger, electrostatic sprayer or airless sprayer (or any other similarly manual or powered equipment).
- For storm and water damage response, use a 2:1 dilution (2 parts water to 1 part Fortiy). Apply to the point of run-off at a rate of up to 300 ft2 per gallon of ready-to-use solution.
- For resurfacing Enviroguard Protective Coatings, use a 9-to-1 dilution (9 parts water to 1 part Fortify). Apply at a rate of 160 ft2 per gallon of ready-to-use solution. Coverage may vary due to surface texture, porosity, age and application method. This does not include loss from over-spray or over-use.
