Euclid Chemical Launches New Solvent-Free Epoxy Coatings for Concrete Moisture Control and Protection

CLEVELAND, Dec. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Euclid Chemical Company, a leading manufacturer of products for the concrete and masonry construction industry, announces the launch of two new products to the company's line of epoxy-based products, Dural Aquatight 100 Plus and Dural 50 LM FS. In response to the needs of concrete and construction professionals, Euclid Chemical is bringing forth new solutions to combat water-related damage and ensure optimal concrete protection and repair.

Dural Aquatight 100 Plus
Concrete moisture mitigation systems are widely accepted as a critical part of the flooring system, used even when the moisture content of concrete or vapor transmission rate are not high at the time of flooring installation. Dural Aquatight 100 Plus is a solvent-free modified epoxy coating designed to seal concrete surfaces and reduce moisture vapor emissions prior to applying a finished flooring system.

Concrete treated with Dural Aquatight 100 Plus is well protected and prepared for the installation of most floor covering systems, including cementitious underlayment, carpeting, wood and more. It can be applied to new and existing concrete slabs in warehouses, industrial/retail facilities, office spaces, supermarkets and food & beverage processing centers. It exceeds the requirements of the industry standard ASTM F3010-13, by providing up to 25 pounds of moisture vapor reduction, as well as a barrier against high-alkaline conditions at the highest level.

Features/Benefits:

Reduces moisture vapor emission rates
Resistant to high-alkaline conditions
Moisture tolerant up to 25 pounds moisture vapor emission rate and 100% relative humidity
Single-coat application
Low odor
Fast cure
Excellent adhesion to properly prepared concrete
Low VOC content
Dural 50 LM FS
Dural 50 LM FS is a low-modulus, solvent-free, fast-curing epoxy sealer designed to penetrate concrete and protect it from the damaging effects of chlorides and water. Over time, water can seep into the concrete foundation and ultimately break down the concrete, causing damages to the surface such as cracks.

Dural 50 LM FS is designed to repair and seal cracks in concrete substrates, while also significantly reducing chloride intrusion. Its ultra-low viscosity ensures superior substrate wetting and easy penetration into static cracks of concrete surfaces. It can also be used as a fast-setting primer for epoxy polymer overlay systems.

Features/Benefits:

Extremely fast setting
Penetrates cracks by gravity
Heals and seals concrete
Increases wear resistance
Significantly reduces chloride intrusion
Reduces water absorption
Easy mixing
Non-flammable
Moisture tolerant
Low VOC content
