Tennant Coatings, manufacturer of industrial floor and wall coatings and division of the floor cleaning machine manufacturer Tennant Company, announced October 3 the introduction of its latest concrete floor solution. Launching the next generation moisture mitigation system, Eco-MVR™ 100, provides advanced protection against the deleterious and costly effects of Moisture Vapor Transmission (MVT), the company states.
Tennant Coatings says Eco-MVR™ 100 not only offers contractor-installers and facilities a greater level of defense against concrete moisture vapor damage than ever before, but also helps reduce costs, downtime and waste with its one coat application The system’s ground-breaking epoxy formulation can withstand very high moisture vapor emission rates (MVER) of up to 99% in-situ relative humidity per ASTM F2170, even when applied to concrete that is less than 28 days old, according to the company. It states in the announcement that it is for use under any flooring that cannot tolerate more than 75% in-situ RH, environmentally and user-friendly Eco-MVR™ 100 complies with SCAQMD VOC regulations and can contribute to LEED® v4 Indoor Air Quality credits.
With over 100 years in business, Tennant Coatings is at the forefront in flooring experience, knowledge, and expertise that, together with Tennant Company cleaning equipment, presents a wide range of solutions to meet flooring needs. With the Eco-MVR™ 100 Moisture Mitigation System, Tennant Coatings is demonstrating its technological leadership within the resinous flooring industry, states the company. Tennant Coatings says that as one of the most comprehensive lines of concrete floor solutions on the market, the brand now includes both traditional and novel epoxy and urethane coating systems as well as pioneering concrete polishing products.
“New Eco-MVR™ 100 is the vanguard of MVT protection in our industry. Being able to safeguard our floor surfaces from the negative effects of very high moisture vapor emission rates – and to do that in a single coat application – is a great accomplishment,” said Peter Kirton, Vice President of Tennant Coatings, “This offers our approved contractors a significant advantage over the competition in both shorter installation times as well as overall system performance.”
