New World Stages, a theatrical venue located on West 50th Street, New York City had an epoxy floor coating over a self leveling concrete floor that was delaminating. Moisture vapor pressure from underneath the floor was pushing upwards breaking the bond between the epoxy and the concrete surface.
Location – 340 West 5oth Street, New York City
Project – New World Stages, 6200 square feet
Problem – Delaminating epoxy paint due to moisture vapor emission
Solution – New high performance, non slip coating to withstand moisture pressure
Products Used – Perdure MVT+, Lumiere Metallic Epoxy
Contractor – Mirage Finishes, Valley Stream, NY
Application of Purdure MVT+
The contractor for the project, Mirage Finishes, removed the old peeling epoxy coating and and applied a new, high build self-leveling epoxy coating called Perdure MVT+. This is one of our unique moisture vapor emission treatment for concrete substrates that will withstand excessive moisture pressure and protect it from failing. Perdure MVT+ has unusual bonding characteristics making it one of the best solutions for floors with moisture issues. It was applied at a thickness of 1/4" and allowed to cure for 24 hours before going on to the next step.
After Perdure MVT+ was cured for 24 hours, a high build coat of self-leveling epoxy Lumiere was applied. This is an additional high performance coating with unlimited decorative potential in addition to being extremely durable and easy to maintain. The contractor applied a non – slip component with a coefficient of friction level exceeding OSHA recommended levels.
