Moisture related problems with floor coverings and coatings applied over concrete slabs have created significant problems over the years for formulators, specifiers, contractors, and owners in the construction industry.
Concrete is one of the most commonly used materials in the construction industry due to its strength, durability, resilience, safety, and low cost. However, concrete being permeable allows moisture contained below the slab, or trapped in the concrete itself, to migrate as a vapor phase to the concrete surface. This moisture transfer phenomenon accounts for many flooring failures with millions of money lost annually; and, the construction team from manufacturers, installers and project architects have to bear lot of losses.
Vapourgard is the solution to such moisture mitigation, designed to block water vapours to pass through the floors. Thus it helps in protecting toppings/coatings over concrete floors.
