McMaster Carr online at mcmaster.com had information regarding the different grades of neoprene some time ago. I tried getting online this morning with no success. (I don't know if the problem is on their end or mine.) >>> duck <duck(--nospam--at)duckbrew.cnchost.com> 02/27/99 02:22am >>> I have a question regarding a waterproof seismic building separation. I have two wood framed office buildings with parapets that are approximately 9 inches apart. The buildings have been designed to act independently of each other. The contractor wants to roof over the separation to prevent any water from getting in between the two walls. The Architect is showing metal flashing. I suggested using a flexible waterproof neoprene, and received the standard "what are you crazy?" response. How long does neoprene typically last? Does anybody have any better suggestions, or information that might help? (aside from shooting the contractor...ha ha.) Thanx.
