USG introduces concrete finishing system featuring new slab technology

USG Corp. has introduced USG Durock Brand NST Concrete Finishing System, a concrete finishing process that utilizes proprietary product technology to help contractors accelerate the construction process and improve overall project quality.

Further demonstrating its commitment to producing innovative products and systems, USG developed the three-step process to address many of the drawbacks of current concrete finishing methods commonly used in the commercial construction industry.

Some benefits of New Slab Technology include:

  • Manages the interface between the concrete slab and the floor covering by bringing harmony to Division 3 (concrete) and Division 9 (finishes) specifications
  • Virtually eliminates concrete slab flatness and levelness issues
  • Encapsulates moisture inside the concrete, where it is useful to the curing process and preventing it from adversely affecting floor finishes
  • Accelerates the construction schedule from the earliest stages of the project, putting the structure into service faster and jump-starting the owner’s revenue stream
  • Reduces risks related to concrete placement, finishing quality and deflection

USG Durock NST Concrete Finishing System makes use of USG Durock RH-100 NST Moisture Vapor Reducer, USG Durock EcoCap NST and Speed NST Self-Leveling Underlayments, and USG Durock 3E NST Primer.
