Alkali Silicate-Based Admixtures for Concrete Floor Slabs

November 12, 2014

flooring failure over concrete slabWhere does the need for concrete moisture mitigation originate? Over the past several decades, the number of moisture-related failures of flooring over concrete slabs has increased due to changes in the flooring industry and government regulations of both adhesives and flooring materials. In response, numerous concrete moisture mitigation systems have been developed to reduce moisture vapor emissions and flooring failures. These systems can take the form of concrete admixtures, topical coatings, sheet membranes, or penetrating surface treatments.
