Moisture migration in concrete causes serious issues under direct-stick floor coverings.
With construction schedules under ever-increasing pressure, concrete curing may not be fully complete when it’s time for the floor coverings to be laid. If the slab is exposed to rain during construction, this will extend the risk of moisture remaining in the slab.
This means that moisture may still migrate up through the slab after floor coverings are laid. Moisture can interact with adhesives, or cause moisture vapour bubbling under resilient floor coverings.
MARKHAM’s concrete solutions beneath floor coverings can prevent these issues from occurring.

This system is best applied at the curing stage, for maximum benefits. However, it can be applied 3 days before the installation of floor coverings.
Also suitable for moisture control under genuine timber flooring.
AQURON 2000 was applied as a concrete treatment to every square metre of this mall to eliminate moisture-related flooring failures under many different floor coverings. You can be sure that any adhesive, flooring or coating designed for bare concrete, will suit hydrogel-treated concrete.
