Wow! That is expensive stuff! It appears to be paint with random fibers that can be applied with a roller. Better than just paint, but not nearly as good as the local process:
Ask your painter to apply “membrana con el impermiabalizante“ for a much better result at a much lower cost. The membrane is a fiberglass mat, which is applied with the 3 or 5 year Fester roof waterproofing paint. It works well.

I agree with impermiabalizante and mat. I used a no-name 7 year and the thin mat. Mat only on trouble spots, corners and thru pipes. impermiabalizante everywhere

Thank you! I'm so glad that there's a work around! I have bathroom that roughed in and needs completing. I thought I'll never get this done at those prices.

That is about all it's used for here. Get white and not the brick red

A five gallon of no name 7 year impermiabalizante was about 800 pesos. I forget the cost of the mat

Careful if you'll eventually put down tile because you'll need a clean cement surface
