Hycrete has made available its System V, which combines hydrophobic concrete admixtures and field service to protect flooring and building interiors from moisture- and vapor-related problems. Moisture in concrete has emerged as a leading cause of flooring failures and litigation in construction. System V is a full-performance warranty against moisture- and vapor-related flooring failures.
•Flooring can be installed after 28 days of concrete placement with no fear of failure, accelerating construction schedules.
•Hycrete W1000 admixture (a component of System V) keeps water out of concrete by shutting down capillary absorption; the drying clock is not re-set and flooring can be installed as scheduled.
•System V is ideal for below- or on-grade slabs where flooring is being installed, as well as for suspended slabs where there is concern of concrete re-wetting after placement.
•Specific applications include hospitals, schools, office buildings and multifamily structures.
