Why not evaluate tapes and liquid flashing when wetted from beneath their bonded interfaces? 

Shown here are failures – combinations of fluid coatings and liquid flashings that adhered poorly when fully cured and then immersed. From lessons such as these emerged successes. Instead of asking, ‘what happens when we try to keep water out?’ – we asked, ‘how does a coating or flashing behave when water gets in?’
