November 2007 – DriTac Adhesive Group has launched DriTac 8000 Moisture Guard, a one-component, trowelable urethane moisture barrier and crack suppressant system, which forms a smooth protective membrane on concrete subfloors and significantly reduces moisture vapor transmission. DriTac 8000 Moisture Guard reduces high levels of moisture vapor transmission in concrete subfloors to a low level, commonly accepted by most wood flooring manufacturers.
In addition to concrete moisture vapor protection, DriTac 8000 Moisture Guard acts as a crack suppressant, bridging cracks in a the concrete substrate up to 1/8” in width. DriTac 8000 Moisture Guard is a low-VOC formula that contains no water and is easily applied with a 3/16” x 3/16” x 5/32” V notched trowel, covering approximately 45-50 square feet per gallon.
