Moisture Vapor Control for New Concrete

If you are looking for a flooring material that offers affordability as well as durability and customization, decorative concrete is definitely the way to go. Decorative concrete offers unlimited options for customization in terms of both texture and color, especially if you choose a product from Düraamen. One thing to be mindful of when having new concrete installed is moisture vapor control.

The Effect of Moisture on Concrete

When you are having 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 make sure that you are using 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 product being installed bonds to the structure below it. When excess moisture begins to flow, however, it may lead to problems with adhesion.

The best way to ensure moisture vapor control for new concrete is to use the Perdure Moisture Vapor Control (MVT) system from Düraamen. This system utilizes a unique water-based epoxy that allows for the installation of moisture-sensitive floor coverings on new concrete without the risk for moisture entrapment. This product is applied in a two-coat application, and it 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, which is why you should leave the job to the professionals. Düraamen 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 Düraamen to get the job done right the first time around.
