VaporControlTM Primer 100

VaporContorl Primer100 is a uniquely-modified compound designed to be used as a base-coat between concrete slab and the coating or surfacing which will withstand moisture and vapor. It is recommended for use under ‘non-breathing’ systems that cannot withstand the possible moisture vapor of the substrate. See the data sheet for suppression rates.

Advantages:
Reduces or eliminates the effect of moisture, excellent adhesion to concrete, can be used to level, flatten smooth or slope the substrate.

Product Uses / Time Frame:
Moisture Vapor Control.
Time from clean base to dry floor = 5 days.
