What generic types of coatings work best as liquid-applied air barriers, considering both cost and effectiveness, and what should be the dry film thickness of this system?


Selected Answers

From yip L C of united chemicals co pte ltd on March 9, 2020:
Two coats of epoxy over concrete will do the trick as air barrier. Taking cost and effectiveness into consideration, the system is 1) a 40% solids, water-based epoxy primer to saturate the concrete porosity with good flow. The thickness will depend on porosity, and  2) a 100 % solids, solventless epoxy primer body coat at 300 microns.
