Diamond-VRS®

 

DESCRIPTION: 

 

DIAMOND-VRS is a plural-component-modified polymer specifically formulated to treat concrete substrates with higher than acceptable vapor emissions. Diamond-VRS forms a permanent matrix within the surface that will restrict moisture vapor volume and concrete salt migration, becoming a permanent part of the concrete surface. Diamond-VRS reduces vapor emissions to a level acceptable for a wide range of non-breathable floor goods. Concrete moisture testing is a snapshot in time. Results may vary in the future; therefore, the only guaranteed moisture protection for non-permeable flooring is an unlimited moisture and alkalinity control system. Diamond-VRS is a proven product to address moisture mitigation. Diamond-VRS has an optional silver ion natural antimicrobial that can be incorporated into the product to inhibit the growth of fungi and bacteria up to 99.96%. 

BENEFITS:

  • Unlimited vapor emission control

  • Unlimited alkalinity control

  • Excellent adhesion to concrete

  • Low-odor formula

  • No VOCs

  • Applicable to 14 day-old concrete

  • Optional Anti-Microbial® additive

  • Qualified LEED® product

 

 

RECOMMENDED USES: 

 

Diamond-VRS is recommended for use anywhere complete moisture and pH control under DiamondStone Resinous Flooring.

LIMITATIONS: 

 

Do not apply when concrete temperatures are less than 50º F or greater than 95º F. (Material cures slower at cooler temperatures, and working time will be substantially reduced at higher temperatures.) All components should be stored in a dry place at temperatures between 65º F and 85º F. Confirm product performance in specific chemical environment prior to use. Substrate temperature must be at least 5° F above the dew point. Actual color may vary slightly upon application. Proper PPE should be used; see MSDS sheet for further information. Post application ASTM F-1869-04 testing may start 7 days after installation. Post testing with results under 3 lbs/1,000 sq ft in a 24-hour period is a requirement of the warranty. Diamond-VRS is compatible with most floor coverings. Diamond-Stone recommends performing a bond test to ensure compatibility with the specified flooring.

WARRANTY INFORMATION: 

 

DiamondStone, LLC guarantees the integrity of the Diamond-VRS modified polymer concrete moisture-control material to be free of manufacturing defects, remain adhered to the substrate and not be affected by moisture or alkalinity for a period of five (5) years when installed by certified applicators, subject to the terms of the published warranty. The limited warranty is for floor covering or coating failure caused by concrete moisture vapor emission and alkalinity of the floor covering or coating system selected and installed. The warranty may be extended to a new floor system replacement with written authorization of DiamondStone, LLC prior to removal of existing system. The warranty covers the cost of the floor covering or coating, preparation and installation compounds and all labor charges associated with product and floor installation in areas exhibiting failure caused by concrete moisture vapor emission and alkalinity damage. Post testing of the completed installation is required per ASTM F-1869 with results of 3 lbs/1,000 sq ft over a 24-hour period or less in order for a warranty to be provided on the project. Please refer to published warranty for specific details of warranty coverage and exclusions.
