Emissions / Alkalinity Precautions
All interior concrete floors not poured over an effective moisture vapor barrier/inhibitor are subject to possible moisture vapor transmission and related high levels of alkalinity that may lead to blistering and failure of the coating system. It is the coating applicator’s responsibility to conduct calcium chloride and relative humidity probe testing to determine if excessive levels of vapor emissions or alkalinity are present before applying any coatings.
