Moisture Vapor Mitigating Floor Coatings & Systems
Problems with moisture in relation to concrete floors are often topics of conversation in construction phases of projects, especially 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). MVT refers to the chemical process whereby moisture evaporates from the concrete during curing.
What is MVT?
In the past contractors had to wait until the concrete was fully cured before continuing with coating application. The epoxy coating seals the concrete slab. You can imagine that if moisture is trying to evaporate but sealed by a layer of epoxy delamination, bubbling and cracks can appear. Moisture testing is a crucial step to ensure the concrete slab is suitable for a topical coating. Concrete Fusion is one of just a few licensed and certified concrete moisture testers in Canada. We moisture test every floor to deliver perfect floors without any risk of MVT damage appearing later on.
