Product Spotlight: Tnemec’s New Moisture Barrier Technology

We have to admit, when we first heard about this product, we were excited!

 

As a leading industrial flooring company in North Texas, T.W. Hicks prides itself on staying up-to-date on all the latest technology, and this new epoxy primer from Tnemec – Series 208 Epoxoprime MVT - is one product we will be recommending often to our customers. Here’s why:

 

1.   Provides Superior Bonding Between Concrete and Floor Coating

Tnemec’s Series 208 epoxy primer is specially formulated to resist high pH levels, and in turn, creates one of the strongest moisture barriers on the market. As moisture from the concrete gets trapped and moves upward toward the epoxy flooring system, it can cause bubbling and cracking, which is a result of high pH elements like salt and chloride penetrating the epoxy surface. With Series 208 epoxy primer, the barrier is so strong this is a non-issue.

 

2.   Earlier Application Time on New Concrete

The industry standard for applying epoxy primer in Dallas is 28 days after new concrete has been set. With Tnemec’s Series 208 epoxy primer, application can happen as early as 10 days. This speeds up the time on your project by a little over 2 weeks!

 

3.   Fast Curing Time

Epoxy topcoat can be applied as early as 6-8 hours after application with the Series 208 epoxy primer in Dallas! We recommend using an epoxy or epoxy-urethane flooring system that will allow for great color and gloss, and with Series 208, you can rest assured it’s also protected from any moisture vapor transmission!
