Do you stick to your very tight production schedules but risk issues with floor coverings? Or do you wait and take the time before installing moisture-sensitive direct flooring product? Which one wins?
With construction programmes getting tighter and tighter, problems can arise with flooring adhesives laid on top of a concrete slab that hasn’t had time for moisture levels to drop.
Did You Know …
Concrete takes up to about 25mm per month to completely ‘dry’, from the time it was last wet – i.e. the inherent moisture levels fall low enough that there is no significant movement. For the floor covering industry, this means moisture migration can still occur within that time … with the resultant failures.
Moisture migration under newly-laid floor coverings can cause expensive issues. Adhesives may be compromised. Bubbling may occur under resilient vinyl. Replacement is costly. How can this issue be avoided?
There is a Cost-Effective Solution
There is a multi-benefit and cost-effective solution, and you can hear more about it from Hayden Prestidge, in the video above!
With AQURON 2000, flooring can be installed regardless of the RH % reading. On new slabs, flooring can be installed 28 days following pour, and on existing, 72 hours following AQUORN application.
