BARRIER ONE:  the cubic yard solution to a square foot problem

Barrier One Moisture Vapor Reduction Admixture is a very unique, complex formula that is free of all volatile organic compounds (VOC). It is specifically designed to have a natural chemical reaction with pre-existing elements inside the concrete to eliminate the route of moisture vapor emission through the slab by restricting the integral capillary system. The chemical reaction forms a permanent barrier (capillary break) that is integral to the concrete, insoluble and irremovable.

In short, Barrier One removes the necessity for field moisture testing, expensive topical remediation systems, and endemic project delays due to the inability to install flooring on schedule.
