A solvent-free epoxy system has been specially-designed for use in formulating moisture vapor emission coatings. A moisture vapor suppression system (MVSS) was found by a third party testing facility to provide perm ratings of <0.10 (depending on film thickness). With this low perm rating, when properly formulated and applied to well prepared concrete surfaces, such a system may be considered a Class I Vapor Diffusion Retarder and may be suitable for use under a variety of finished floor coverings such as vinyl tiles and sheeting, rubber-backed carpet, hardwood, and solvent-free epoxy primers.

Proper substrate preparation is very important. Shot blasting is strongly recommended, however, it is the sole responsibility of the end user to
identify which methods are suitable for concrete preparation given the specific
conditions of the substrate and environment for application. It is incumbent upon the formulator and/ or contractor to apply a test patch. the formulated system on the substrate before application. The application of a test patch to each specific area of the job site is recommended to ensure that the formulation meets the application requirements and is suitable for use in that specific area. The test patch(es) should be applied and evaluated after 30 minutes prior to commencement of application of entire job.

Mix the fully-formulated epoxy and curing agent portions and blend to a homogeneous
state with appropriate mixing equipment. Avoid entraining excessive air into the blend
during high speed agitation. Thorough mixing is recommended by agitating at low
or moderate speeds for a minimum of 3 to 5 minutes. Due to its working pot life, this system should be applied immediately after thorough mixing. Do not apply to surfaces with visible moisture. A uniform coating can be applied with a squeegee and paint roller combination method, for example. Coverage rates depend on application technique, substrate porosity and required perms. Cure time is temperature dependent. At room temperature, re-coat can be accomplished in approximately 8 hours; lower temperatures may require up to 24 hours.
