Vapor Lock Admixtures

The Vapor Lock family of products are the backbone of SPG (Specialty Products Group). Vapor Lock 20/20 admixture is the heart of the product line.  How does Vapor Lock work?  The chemistry behind Vapor Lock uses the free water and various components of cement to create additional C-S-H gel.  By doing so we close the capillaries and bleed channels which are normally formed in the concrete.  A Vapor Lock enhanced slab does does not absorb any additional moisture and therefore allows the on- time installation of flooring which rely on today's VOC free moisture sensitive adhesives.  View our product demo.
