New White Paper on the Limitations of Silicates in Concrete Flooring
AC•Tech is often called upon to diagnose and fix flooring failures caused by high moisture, high alkalinity, and high undissolved silicate content in the concrete substrate.
This short note is intended to highlight some of the issues relating to the use of Silicates in concrete substrates where subsequent floor coatings and
finished flooring systems are contemplated.
We hope that this information may assist those involved in designing, specifying, and installing flooring systems over concrete substrates to avoid these problems from the beginning (rather than be forced to fix them later at great cost and at great inconvenience).
