Laticrete launches Vapor Ban E

Home Categories Installation Laticrete launches Vapor Ban E

Vapor Ban EBethany, Conn.—Laticrete, a leading manufacturer of globally proven construction solutions for the building industry, has introduced Vapor Ban E a single-coat, 100% solids, liquid applied two-part epoxy coating specifically designed for controlling the moisture vapor emission rate from 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 mitigation products in an all-in-one formula, according to the company.

“With moisture being one of the leading causes of flooring failures, Vapor Ban E provides a high-performing solution that offers peace-of-mind, efficiency and enhanced protection,” said Elvis Torres, Laticrete product manager. “This consolidation helps our distribution network by eliminating the need to carry and stock multiple epoxy floor moisture barriers, simplifying the ordering process and reducing inventory costs. Also, it allows our users to focus and see exactly what they need, not being confused by products with similar performing attributes. Vapor Ban E is the perfect entry point into the line, followed after 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 the moisture vapor emission rate (MVER) from less than or equal to 25 pounds to below three pounds. Additionally, Vapor Ban E exceeds the ASTM F3010 (below 0.1 perms) standard 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 colorants) 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 broadcasting directly into a concrete vapor barrier. Vapor Ban E can be used with both the Laticrete NXT and Supercap product line of high-performing self-leveling underlayments and traffic bearing overlays.
