Euclid Chemical Launches New Solvent-Free Epoxy Coatings for Concrete Moisture Control and Protection

New Solvent-Free Epoxy Coatings - Dural Aquatight 100 Plus
The Euclid Chemical Company, a leading manufacturer of products for the concrete and masonry construction industry, launches new solvent-free epoxy coatings. These products are an addition to the company’s line of epoxy-based products. The new Dural Aquatight 100 Plus and Dural 50 LM FS are a response to the needs of concrete and construction professionals. Euclid Chemical is bringing forth these new solutions to combat both water-related damage and ensure optimal concrete protection and repair.

Dural Aquatight 100 Plus

Concrete moisture mitigation systems are widely accepted as a critical part of the flooring system, used even when the moisture content of concrete or vapor transmission rate are not high at the time of flooring installation. Dural Aquatight 100 Plus is a solvent-free modified epoxy coating designed to seal concrete surfaces and reduce moisture vapor emissions prior to applying a finished flooring system.

When you treat concrete with Dural Aquatight 100 Plus it protects and prepares the concrete for the installation of most floor covering systems. These installations include cementitious underlayment, carpeting, wood and more. It can be applied to new and existing concrete slabs in warehouses, industrial/retail facilities, office spaces, supermarkets and also food & beverage processing centers. It exceeds the requirements of the industry standard ASTM F3010-13, by providing up to 25 pounds of moisture vapor reduction, as well as a barrier against high-alkaline conditions at the highest level.

Features/Benefits
  • Reduces moisture vapor emission rates
  • Resistant to high-alkaline conditions
  • Moisture tolerant up to 25 pounds moisture vapor emission rate and 100% relative humidity
  • Single-coat application
  • Low odor
  • Fast cure
  • Excellent adhesion to properly prepared concrete
  • Low VOC content
Dural 50 LM FS

Dural 50 LM FS is a low-modulus, solvent-free, fast-curing epoxy sealer. It’s design is to penetrate concrete and protect it from the damaging effects of both chlorides and water. Over time, water can seep into the concrete foundation and ultimately break down the concrete, causing damages to the surface such as cracks.

Dural 50 LM FS is designed to repair and seal cracks in concrete substrates, while also significantly reducing chloride intrusion. Its ultra-low viscosity ensures both superior substrate wetting and easy penetration into static cracks of concrete surfaces. Dural 50LM FS is good for use as a fast-setting primer for epoxy polymer overlay systems.

Features/Benefits
  • Extremely fast setting
  • Penetrates cracks by gravity
  • Heals and seals concrete
  • Increases wear resistance
  • Significantly reduces chloride intrusion
  • Reduces water absorption
  • Easy mixing
  • Non-flammable
  • Moisture tolerant
  • Low VOC content
