The Effect of Moisture on Concrete

When you have a new layer of concrete poured – either for new construction or a concrete resurfacing job – there are several factors to consider. First, you want to ensure that you use the right product for the job. Second, you want to know that it is being installed correctly. One of the biggest causes of failure in new concrete is excess moisture in or below the concrete slab. It is always necessary to ensure that the installed product bonds to the structure below it. When excess moisture begins to flow, however, it may lead to problems with adhesion.

Moisture vapor emission in concrete substrates can be managed using epoxy resin-based products like Perdure MVT. The best way to ensure moisture vapor control for new concrete is to use the Perdure Moisture Vapor Control (MVT) system from Duraamen. This system utilizes a unique water-based epoxy that allows moisture-sensitive floor coverings on new concrete without the risk of moisture entrapment. This product is applied in a two-coat application and requires minimal downtime. The Perdure MVT system eliminates blistering and delamination of adhesives and floor colorings, effectively controlling water vapor transmission levels to ensure the durability of your new concrete surfaces.

Resurfacing a concrete floor is no easy task, so the professionals should leave the job. Duraamen is not only one of the leaders in decorative concrete and resinous flooring systems, but we also have access to a large network of qualified concrete professionals. For all of your concrete work, trust Duraamen to get the job done right the first time.
