Moisture Mitigation Systems
High relative humidity (RH) and moisture vapor in concrete slabs are the leading cause of flooring failures. Our systems are designed to hold back vapor drive up to 100% RH, ASTM F2170, or 25 lbs / 1000 sf / 24 hours, ASTM 1869, for calcium chloride tests. If you have failing floors with bubbles, gooey adhesive, debonding, dampness, or water, most likely you need a moisture mitigation system.
KOSTER American is considered the original, gold standard in moisture mitigation systems. KOSTER has 3 bulletproof systems, VAP 1 2000 Zero VOC, a 12 hour cure product, VAP 1 2000 FS, a 4 hour cure product, and VAP 1 2000 UFS, a 2 to 3 hour cure system. All 3 are 100% solids epoxy and offer industry leading 15 year warranties against failure due to moisture vapor. Pair these VAP systems with KOSTER’s Oil Removal System, which will mitigation oil contamination and offer a 15 year warranty against failure due to moisture vapor for fixing oil contaminated floors. KOSTER also has a line of decorative coatings, waterproofing systems, and underlayments.

Industrial Floor Coatings
KOSTER has heavy duty coatings for industrial applications
TEC Specialty has 2 moisture mitigation systems, Liquidam and Liquidam EZ. Liquidam is a 2 part, 100% solids epoxy mitigation system, and Liquidam EZ is an innovative, 1 part, 2 coat system. EZ can be installed over green concrete 72 hours old. The 2nd coat can be installed in less than 1 hour after the 1st coat, and skim coat or underlayment can be installed 1 hour after the 2nd coat is installed. No primer required. TEC’s complementary underlayments are some of the best on the market.
Liquidam is a 4 hour cure product that can go down on concrete as little as 48 hours old.
Liquidam EZ is an easy to apply, 1 part mitigation system. The material can be poured out, resealed, and used up to 6 months after. Save on waste!
Level Set 300
While TEC has many self leveling underlayments, Level Set 300 is our favorite. Cost conscious, high 5500 PSI compression strength, and incredible ease of workability make it a contractor favorite.
