C04 – Moisture Mitigation – Self Leveling Application – Planiseal MB, Primer – Primer T, Liquid Skim Coat – Ultraplan LSC.
Moisture Barrier and Consolidating Epoxy Primer – Planiseal MB is a 100%-solids epoxy coating that is designed to effectively stop moisture-related problems with toppings, as well as act as a surface-consolidating epoxy primer. When the designated film thickness is applied, Planiseal MB will reduce moisture vapor emission rates (MVERs) of up to 25 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. (11,3 kg per 92,9 m2) per 24 hours to below the limit of 3 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. (1,36 kg per 92,9 m2).
When Planiseal MB is applied in a single-coat application system, its low-viscosity high-density resins penetrate deep into the substrate to effectively consolidate the substrate and reduce the MVER. Planiseal MB also may be used to consolidate friable substrates before application of toppings and other floor finishes, in addition to self-leveling underlayments. There will be a brief discussion on moisture mitigation situations and how to repair them. A demonstration will be done using Planiseal MB, Primer T, and Ultraplan LSC.
