TEC presents an educational moisture mitigation video.

Moisture Mitigation: How to Prevent Problems

In this video you will learn the following.

Why moisture mitigation is important.

And how to prevent moisture from affecting the installation.

You will also learn the source of moisture

Effects of moisture on already installed hard and soft flooring.

When to use a moisture mitigation system

And how to install the moisture mitigation system

Moisture. In the flooring industry few words cause so much anguish. Excessive moisture vapor emission rate, also know as M V E R, is the culprit for many failures both in soft and hard surface floor installations.

One way moisture gets into your flooring is through vapor transmission. Vapor Transmission is caused by moisture in the slab that evaporates toward the atmosphere. This can be from moisture that was there when the slab was first poured. Typically this moisture soaks into the slab in the form of rain or ground water. The moisture moves through the slab and breaks down the adhesives, which warps and buckles the flooring.

When to use moisture mitigation.

In selecting the right solution, there are several factors to consider, such as:
The relative humidity of the slab, the condition of the concrete surface, and specific job requirements and timelines.

Challenging jobs that need to quickly be made ready for flooring should consider The LiquiDAM from TEC. The LIQUIDAM™ provides commercial contractors confidence that their installations will be protected from moisture through the use of the Penetrating Moisture Vapor Barrier.

The LiquiDAM mitigates excess moisture vapor emission rates. It is a 2-part epoxy formulated to be applied to damp or new concrete, as little as 48 hours after concrete placement with a moisture vapor emission rate a maximum relative humidity of 100% or less than or equal to 25 lbs. The LiquiDAM exceeds the standards for Moisture Vapor Barrier and There is no need for shot blasting for clean, sound concrete, including burnished concrete. The LiquiDAM only requires one coat and will permeate to fill voids and gaps. Because it cures with-in 4 to 5 hours you can install the floor on the same day.

Now we will recap what you have learned so far.

What causes moisture?
A: rain water
B: ground water
C: existing moisture already in the slab
D: All of the above

D: All of the above

Excess moisture vapor emission rates can cause failures in both hard and soft surface floor installations.


What factors should you consider when selecting the right solution to your moisture problems?
A: Relative humidity of the slab
B: Condition of the concrete surface
C: All of the above
D: None of the above

C: All of the above

How to Install

The first step is to know your substrate. Test your substrate for moisture. Follow the ASTM F-2170 test. Be sure to follow the instructions of the relative humidity equipment and the ASTM test method. Refer to manufactures guidelines for the recommended relative humidity levels for installing their flooring.

Ensure your surface is strong enough for a proper bond.
Test the surface with a knife. If it produces a fine powder, mechanically prepare the surface by grinding or shot blasting.
If the surface does not produce any powder, your floor is contaminate free, and you may proceed.

Ensure your substrate is clean and contaminant free.

If contaminated, clean the surface until it is free of debris.

To mix the product, pour The LiquiDAM Penetrating Moisture
Vapor Barrier Part B Curing Agent into the 2 gallon pail of The LiquiDAM Part A and mix thoroughly for 3 minutes using a low speed of 300 RPMs or less.

Now that you have mixed the product you need to prep for the joint or crack. First let’s understand the different types of joint and cracks.

What is a static versus a dynamic joint?

Static joints are non-moving joints.

Dynamic joints are moving joints.

There is a difference between the proper application of flooring over static, or non-moving joints, versus dynamic, or moving joints, as well as variations based upon the type of flooring being installed. Please follow appropriate industry standards, as well as the flooring manufacturer’s recommendation for the treatment of joints.

For Static Cracks and Control Joints less than 1mm, with no movement.....

Remove any dirt, debris or existing sealant from cracks and joints. Treat all static joints with The LiquiDAM by applying material into the joint with a paintbrush to completely coat the walls of the cavity.

For Static Cracks and Control Joints greater than 1mm, with no movement.

Remove any dirt, debris or existing sealant from cracks and joints. Treat all static joints with The LiquiDAM by applying material into the joint with a paintbrush to completely coat the walls of the cavity.

To treat joints greater than 1 mm you will need The LiquiDAM, silica sand and a small bucket. Blend at a 1:1 ratio The LiquiDAM and the silica sand into the small bucket and mix. Larger cracks may require a different ratio. Please follow manufauturers product data sheet for the proper ratio.

Immediately pour the blend into coated control joints and cracks, making it level with the concrete surface.

For Expansion Joints and Dynamic Cracks, with movement.

Remove any dirt, debris or existing sealant from cracks and joints. Treat all dynamic joints with The LiquiDAM by applying material into the joint with a paintbrush to completely coat the walls of the cavity.

Once cured, fill the joint with sand or backer rod while leaving the top of the joint open for proper treatment with sealant.

There are two options to apply The LiquiDAM.

Option 1 is to squeegee and Option 2 is to trowel.

Immediately after mixing, pour the blended gallon container of The LiquiDAM onto the floor at a thickness no greater than 1/4".

Spread with a squeegee or 1/16" square notched trowel allowing the The LiquiDAM to saturate the surface.
Do not move too fast.

After spreading wait 5 minutes before back rolling to minimize surface bubbles.
Do not over-work.
Higher temperatures will shorten the work time.

After waiting 5 minutes, begin to back roll surface with a 3/16" nap foam roller to evenly distribute the product. First saturate the roller and then work at a smooth even pace. Periodically evaluate the surface to ensure a smooth continuous film.

The LiquiDAM covers between 100 and 180 square feet per blended unit.

The LiquiDAM Penetrating Moisture Vapor Barrier performs equally well on porous or dense concrete. On porous concrete it penetrates into the surface. On dense concrete it forms a continuous, topical film. While the porosity of the substrate affects the application appearance, it does not affect the performance.

The LiquiDAM cures to a walkable surface or tacky film with no transfer to the touch in approximately 4-5 hours.

Unused LiquiDAM should be poured onto scrap cardboard or plywood to dissipate the heat from the curing reaction. Once cured, containers may be disposed of in normal job site trash.

Most floor coverings and adhesives require the application of a TEC cementitious underlayment over the The LiquiDAM.

In this video you have learned the following.

Why moisture mitigation is important.

And how to prevent moisture from affecting the installation.

You also learned the source of moisture

The effects of moisture on already installed hard and soft flooring.

When to use a moisture mitigation system.

And how to install the moisture mitigation system.
