Water & water-vapour transmission has been a major concern for designers and owners in the construction industry for many years.
Do you experience any of the following?
By creating a permanent chemical fusion within the concrete that seals the capillaries and channels for moisture migration vapour transmission can be reduced to 2% (allowing concrete to endure freeze/thaw). Through this process the alkali is locked up preventing efflorescence (concrete cancer), it also prevents water seepage, water vapor migration, condensation, molds, mildew, and musty odors. Reduces cracking, densifies and hardens the concrete and also allows for application of adhesives, paints and coatings, preventing flaking and peeling.
The grouting in a concrete block construction is the most vulnerable site for moisture ingress as unless a non shrink grout is used the std mortar mix grout will shrink and crack and allow moisture ingress. This is the most common point of moisture intrusion in concrete block construction and Armourtech DPS will not bridge the gap left by shrinkage and mortar cracking.
Armourtech Concrete Sealer should be considered as a vital aspect of any concrete project to prevent the damaging effects of moisture migration and vapour transmission. Armourtech Concrete Sealer will increase durability and reduce cost.
