American Hydrotech, Inc.
American Hydrotech, Inc., is a recognized leader in the development, production and distribution of premium waterproofing and roofing products. Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, the company was founded in 1977 after acquiring the United States distribution rights for Monolithic Membrane 6125, a unique waterproofing membrane developed in the early 1960`s by Uniroyal Ltd. Rooftops are one of the last areas of the development site where highly effective stormwater management BMPs can be employed to deal with rainfall where it lands before it has a chance to immediately run down the drain. The membrane has been installed worldwide on over 2 billion square feet of roof decks, plazas, vertical foundations, reflecting pools and other structures in over 80 countries.
Today, Hydrotech’s flagship product remains Monolithic Membrane 6125, a hot fluid-applied, rubberized asphalt for waterproofing and roofing applications. MM6125 contains a minimum 40% recycled content and is thick, seamless, easy to detail and bonds directly to the substrate. The product has been in the marketplace for 50 years, with an unsurpassed performance history.
American Hydrotech, Inc. has achieved continued growth through the addition of new products and assemblies and expansion of marketing efforts. Hydrotech products are sold through an extensive network of sales representatives, many of whom are recognized industry-wide as roofing and waterproofing experts. Furthermore, Hydrotech's products are only sold to pre-approved contractors, to ensure quality of workmanship during installation.
