Arizona Polymer Flooring (APF) has launched VaporSolve Moisture Remediation Systems, a highly specialized epoxy coating system formulated to isolate moisture-sensitive flooring from all levels of concrete moisture.

VaporSolve systems can be used:

• When concrete has a known moisture problem;

• When concrete dries too slowly to meet a specific construction schedule; or

• As a preventive measure, when concrete doesn’t have a vapor retarder and future moisture conditions cannot be predicted.

Preventing Flooring Failures
 
Excessive concrete moisture is the No. 1 cause of flooring failure, contributing to billions of dollars of loss annually, according to APF, a manufacturer of high-performance flooring products and concrete coating systems.  The company says most failures can be prevented with a properly designed concrete vapor barrier.

Arizona Polymer Flooring offers training for all three of its VaporSolve Moisture Remediation Systems.

VaporSolve can be used on all levels of concrete moisture vapor and is easy to use, says APF Vice President Daniel Owen.
                                                
“We believe this product line is going to change the way contractors combat concrete moisture on all types of flooring,” Owen said. “In fact, our success rate is greater than 99 percent.”
 
3 Systems

APF has developed three VaporSolve Moisture Remediation Systems and offers training for each.

 VaporSolve Basic uses a single-coat application of VaporSolve 100, a 100% solids epoxy. This system is applied when the concrete has not been contaminated with reactive silicate curing compounds or densifiers.

• VaporSolve Ultra uses a water-based epoxy as a primer that gives deeper penetration and better adhesion when applied to silicate-contaminated concrete. The primer is finish-coated with VaporSolve 100, which is designed to greatly reduce the possibility of concrete outgassing.

• VaporSolve Fresh Concrete uses a water-based epoxy formulation to bond to concrete that is six to 24 hours old. The finish coat is VaporSolve 100. This system is designed to eliminate water evaporation from the top of the slab, serving as the ultimate curing compound.
Founded in 1985, APF formulates a wide variety of products based on epoxy, polyurethane and acrylic technology.
