PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

CONCURE SYSTEMS Vapor Barrier +PLUS+ is a topically applied, deep penetrating integral sealer system designed to stop floor coverings from de-bonding due to moisture. The system is water based and designed for fast track installations. The primary use of Concure Systems Vapor Barrier +PLUS+ is for waterproofing below grade slabs, on-grade slabs, and elevated deck slabs.

This system stops hydro-static pressure, ASR, capillary action and moisture migration. It also creates a negative and positive side barrier. This product is compatible with all primers and adhesives for non-porous surfaces.

Vapor Barrier +PLUS+ is a Silicate-Free sealer that deeply penetrates into the concrete slab. A reaction occurs between the lime and excess Portland cement, which is always present, and forms Calcium Silicate Hydrate (CSH). This process will encapsulate the moisture to create a permanent break in the capillaries of the concrete, stopping all moisture related problems caused by moisture vapor emissions out of or through the slab.

This system is designed to stop moisture problems measured at all levels intolerant to the installation of patching and flooring materials as recommended by flooring manufacturers.

TESTING:

Prior to starting the installation(s),  ASTM D-4263, Adhesion/Bond Compatibility and pH testings must be performed and those results registered with Concure Systems LLC. (See Concure for further details)

USES:

Concure Systems Vapor Barrier +PLUS+ is a topically applied deep penetrating integral system (DPIS) designed to prevent floor coverings from de-bonding due to elevated moisture conditions.

** Vapor Barrier +PLUS+ is a topically applied deep-penetrating system that is especially useful in new construction when elevated moisture levels exceed Floor Manufacture maximum levels when tested and detected before the original flooring is installed **

TEST RESULTS:

Adhesion                          ASTM C952         200psi

Permeability                     ASTM D-5084     1.9 x10-10 cm/sec

COMPOSITION:

Vapor Barrier +PLUS+ is a formulated blend of proprietary reactive ingredients.

SURFACE PREPARATION:

EITHER brush blast using 330/360 blended shot OR use a Planetary Grinder, 32″ Lavina Disc, PCB Blades (acceptable brands Extreme Grinder, Lavina, Cutters or equal) to achieve an ICRI (International Concrete Repair Institute) profile III / IV (3 / 4). This is required by Concure. The surface, after shot blasting or grinding is completed, should be white in color with no signs of curing agents or other types of concrete finished surface.  After brush blasting or grinding, make sure the surface is clean, with no signs of dirt, oil, curing agents, sealers or adhesive residues. All loose material and dirt must be removed from cracks in order to allow proper bonding. 

APPLICATION PREPARATORY WORK:

Handle and store product according to Concure Systems recommendations. Concure Systems Vapor Barrier +PLUS+ should be used in all interior slabs unless noted otherwise. Using a low-pressure sprayer, apply two generous coats.  First application in one direction and before the first coat completely dries, apply the second coat in the opposite direction.  Two-coat coverage is 200-300sf per gallon. Do not let the material pond on the surface. Broom material evenly to cover all areas. Dry time is usually about an hour, depending upon the temperature and jobsite conditions. 

RE-PROFILING CONCRETE SURFACE:
