VaporSolve® Primer is a water-based epoxy material with deep penetration and adhesion to concrete. It has superior performance to 100% solids materials over contaminated concrete. This product eliminates or greatly reduces concrete outgassing.
When used with the companion finish coat, 100% solids VaporSolve® 100, a coating system is achieved that reduces moisture vapor emissions to acceptable levels for all flooring and maintains its bond under continuously moist, alkaline conditions. VaporSolve® Primer is also ideal over damp or green concrete. The product may be applied at temperatures between 40-100°F.
Together, VaporSolve® Primer and VaporSolve® 100 form the VaporSolve® Ultra System which is designed to remediate all concrete moisture problems, regardless of severity.
VaporSolve® may be used in new construction settings when a schedule must be met, yet the concrete is not dry enough to allow for the installation of moisture sensitive flooring. It can be used over concrete with known moisture problems and over concrete that has been placed without a vapor retarder as a means of preventing future moisture problems.
Modified Bisphenol F epoxy crosslinked with a water-soluble amine. System modified with a silane adhesion promoter.
- Concrete must be clean and have a CSP profile of 3-4 (texture similar to 60-80 grit sandpaper).
- Must be applied at specified film thickness.
- Concrete must remain sound for coating to stay permanently adhered.
