Tennant Moisture Vapor Control Coatings
Tennant, a world leader in both advanced floor coatings and cleaning equipment, offers two, fast-acting moisture-vapor epoxy products to address the MVT challenge.
Both systems are VOC compliant and offer the potential for LEED credits for Indoor Environmental Quality. These systems are meant to be applied directly to the concrete prior to any other epoxy or urethane floor coating system and they are clear in color.
Eco-MVR, our moisture-vapor reducer, is a fluid-applied epoxy, offering high compressive and tensile strengths, Eco-MVR provides a quick resolution to the combined issues of MVT and the long cure rate of concrete; it can be applied over concrete that is just 14 days old.
There are two systems: a 7-mil system and a 15-mil system. If the concrete was installed more than a year before application of the Eco-MVR coating, the 15-mil is recommended.
Eco-MVS can help you accelerate your new construction even more with application possible within 7 days of pouring new concrete.
It is available in a 15-mil option and a 23-mil option. The primary differences in what each system can withstand are as follows:
- 15 mil system: 15 lbs per 1,000 sq ft in 24 hour period per ASTM F1869-04 or 89% in-situ relative humidity per ASTM F2170
- 23 mil system: 24 lbs per 1,000 sq ft in 24 hour per ASTM F1869-04 or 99% in-situ relative humidity per ASTM F2170
