Laticrete launches Vapor Ban E

Vapor prohibition EBethany, Conn.-Laticrete, a leading manufacturer of globally proven construction solutions for the building industry, has introduced Vapor Ban E, a single-layer, 100% solids, two-component, liquid-applied epoxy coating specifically designed to control moisture vapor emission. of new or existing concrete slabs. As a direct replacement for NXT Vapor Reduction Coating, Spartacote Moisture Vapor Barrier and Supercap Moisture Vapor Control, this product offers the benefits and features of each of these existing epoxy moisture control products in an all-in-one formula.

“As moisture is one of the leading causes of flooring problems, Vapor Ban E provides a high-quality solution that provides peace of mind, efficiency and enhanced protection,” said Elvis Torres, Laticrete Product Manager. “This consolidation helps our distribution network by eliminating the need to transport and stock multiple epoxy waterproofing membranes, simplifying the ordering process and reducing inventory costs. It also allows our users to focus and see exactly what they need without getting confused by products with similar performance characteristics. Vapor Ban E is the perfect starting point for the line, followed by Vapor Ban ER and Vapor Ban Primer ER.”

The product protects moisture and pH sensitive floor coverings such as most resinous coatings, vinyl, rubber, hardwood, carpet, ceramic tile and stone up to 100% relative humidity (RH) and reduces moisture vapor emission (MVER) of less than or equal to 25 pounds to less than three pounds. In addition, Vapor Ban E exceeds ASTM F3010 standard (less than 0.1 permanent) and is compatible with non-water based adhesives.

According to the company, this product can be pigmented with Spartacote Universal Pigments (a line of concentrated dyes) for use as a base coat in any Spartacote system. This product also accepts a broadcast of Spartacote Blended Chip (flake) or Quartz, which saves an installation step by blasting directly into a concrete vapor barrier. Vapor Ban E can be used with both the Laticrete NXT and Supercap product line of high performance self-leveling underlays and traffic-carrying overlays.
