VAPOR BAN™ Primer ER from LATICRETE, a manufacturer of construction solutions for the building industry, is a single coat, 100% solids, liquid applied, two-part epoxy coating. It consolidates the application of a moisture barrier and primer from two steps into one. The product will also perform as an epoxy primer for concrete prior to installing self leveling underlayment products such as NXT Level and LATICRETE® SUPERCAP®.
“By consolidating the application of a moisture barrier and primer from two steps to one step with VAPOR BAN Primer ER, contractors experience compound value through time savings and lower material and labor costs, which are always top concerns on the jobsite. VAPOR BAN Primer is a convenient, easy-to-use product that simplifies the construction process,” said LATICRETE Associate Product Manager Elvis Torres.
VAPOR BAN Primer ER is suitable for fast-track projects like hospitals or schools; applications where moisture is present, like cellars or basements; slab-on-grade construction; and elevated slabs. It can be used for the installation of vinyl, rubber, VCT, carpet, wood, ceramic tile, stone, and other moisture sensitive floor coverings and flooring adhesives.
VAPOR BAN Primer ER eliminates the need of broadcasting sand into a moisture barrier or applying a primer after a moisture barrier has cured, which saves installers time and money—it requires no sand broadcast or additional primers and is specifically designed for controlling the moisture vapor emission rate from new or existing concrete slabs. VAPOR BAN Primer ER ensures protection of moisture/pH sensitive floor coverings.
ASTM F-3010 compliant, the VAPOR BAN Primer ER all-in-one moisture vapor barrier and primer is ready for self-leveling underlayment placement after three to four hours of curing. Finished floor goods or NXT Level and SUPERCAP self-leveling products can be installed or applied immediately after. This product can be applied to clean and sound concrete, even over new concrete in as little as five days.
VAPOR BAN Primer ER is a component of the LATICRETE 25 Year System Warranty. Factory sealed containers of this product are guaranteed to be of first quality for two years if stored at temperatures >32°F and <110°F.
