Moisture Vapor Transmission Mitigation Coating Systems

Moisture Vapor Mitigation Systems

Site conditions can contribute to a concrete slab demonstrating undesirably high moisture vapor transmission levels. When this occurs, moisture vapor finds tiny pathways upward through the slab via capillary action, finally condensing into a high-pH liquid. Buildup of this alkaline liquid on the concrete floor surface can destroy the ability of industrial flooring to bond to the concrete substrate. In addition to the FloroCrete lineup of urethane mortar systems you also have available superior moisture vapor mitigation systems that may be applied beneath a range of coatings.

Schonox EPA Rapid Epoxy Moisture Mitigation System for high moisture vapor emission rate in concrete. 100% solids concrete moisture mitigation system to block moisture problems in wet concrete prior to the installation of floor coatings and floor coverings.

Schonox EPA Rapid Epoxy Moisture Mitigation System

Rapid Curing, Two-Part, Epoxy Based Moisture Mitigation System suitable on porous, unheated concrete slabs to reduce moisture vapor emission rates from 100% RH or 25 lbs./1000 sq.ft./24 hrs to suitable levels before applying Schönox underlayments. Only one coat required to penetrate and to fully seal the substrate. Residual moisture issues in your concrete subfloor as high as 100% RH can be handled with just one coat. No VOC. Low viscosity. High penetration. Choose Schönox EPA Rapid for even tighter project time constraints.
