Epoxy Floor Coating: Reliable Option for Moisture Control

For an illuminating and seamless high performance floor, many businesses turn to epoxy floor coating as a reliable option. Epoxy floor solutions are known for their excellent clarity and color, low amount of odor during application, easy spreading properties, and the ability to serve as a fast cure option.

Businesses of all kinds benefit from the use of an epoxy floor coating, such as:

  • Retail showrooms
  • Salons
  • Spas
  • Restaurants
  • Bars
  • Gyms
  • Child care facilities
  • Night clubs

Two main reasons why businesses appreciate epoxy floor coating are because of the durability and abrasion resistance it provides. Some epoxies don’t allow breathability and will trap moisture vapor, which are two of its downfalls. However, with Duraamen, customers can find an epoxy floor coating with high vapor emission rates.

Duraamen’s system was recently implemented by Garage and Beyond, a company located in Englewood, New Jersey. They used this epoxy for the headquarters at the Head Injury Association, located in Hauppauge, New York. According to Garage and Beyond, the original Head Injury Association building was about 20 years old and had a damp smell to it. This is what prompted Garage and Beyond to conduct moisture vapor emission tests, which came to their readings of 8 pounds per 1,000 square feet in 24 hours.

In addition, Perdure MVT+ was installed at a thickness of 1/8 inch to assist with the moisture problems experienced by the Head Injury Association. This is a two component modified epoxy system that is designed to seal concrete and reduce any moisture vapor transmission.

By using Duraamen’s epoxy floor coating, Garage and Beyond assisted the Head Injury Association’s headquarters with a serious moisture problem. When there are moisture problems in concrete floors, many problems can occur, such discoloration of the floor, danger issues (such as slipping), and corrosion of items embedded into the concrete.
