Arizona Polymer Flooring (Glendale, Ariz.) introduced the VaporSolve™ Moisture Remediation System, a specialized epoxy coating system designed to isolate moisture-sensitive flooring from all levels of concrete moisture.
The coating system can be used when concrete has a known moisture problem, when concrete dries too slowly to meet a specific construction schedule, or as a preventive measure when concrete does not have a vapor retarder or future moisture conditions are unpredictable, the company says.
The company developed three versions of system, detailed below.
• Basic System: Uses a single-coat application of VaporSolve 100, a 100% solids epoxy. This system is applied when the concrete has not been contaminated with reactive silicate curing compounds or densifiers.
• Ultra System: Uses a water-based epoxy as a primer that gives deeper penetration and better adhesion when applied to silicate-contaminated concrete. The primer is finish coated with VaporSolve 100, which reduces the possibility of concrete outgassing.
• Fresh Concrete System: Uses a water-based epoxy formulation to bond to 6- to 24- hour-old concrete. The finish coat is VaporSolve 100. This system eliminates water evaporation from the top of the slab, serving as the ultimate curing compound.
