Moisture Vapor Mitigating Floor Coatings & Systems

Problems with moisture are often topics of conversation in construction, in particular when discussing slab-on-grade flooring. One of the biggest challenges for designers, contractors, and owners of industrial and commercial properties is moisture vapor transmission (MVT).

What is MVT?

In recent years, we have learned a lot about MVT. In days gone by, contractors had to wait until new concrete had fully cured before installing further floor coatings. It was more with hope and lots of time consuming tests that any moisture had subsided, than the science of today. We now understand that some concrete can take months to to reach a MVT level that is safe enough to apply a typical coating system. Site conditions, weather, and the environment can cause high moisture vapor transmission levels. A high buildup of alkaline liquid sits on top of the concrete floor. This is caused by a capillary action of the moisture working its way up through the concrete condensing in a high-value ph.
