Moisture Mitigation Solutions

Dex-O-Tex is the name you can trust when it comes to high-performance concrete moisture barrier systems. Our products protect your floors from costly repairs due to moisture vapor damage.

Newly constructed concrete flooring releases a lot of moisture vapor for several reasons. These include the high water-to-cement ratio in concrete, free water that did not evaporate naturally, and a lack of concrete slab moisture mitigation. If not addressed immediately, the moisture vapor trapped in the slab, just beneath the flooring, can liquefy at the slightest change in temperature. It may lead to a lot of problems, such as mold growth, adhesive breakdown, cracking and heaving, or a total flooring failure.

Thankfully, architects, designers, and engineers can prevent the adverse effects of moisture vapor by specifying the right moisture seal decking or mitigation system for their project. At Dex-O-Tex, we have two superior moisture barrier systems:

VaporControl Primer 200-E

VaporControl Primer is a fluid-applied, epoxy moisture mitigation system ideal for the vast majority of non-breathing flooring surfaces, including epoxies, urethanes, rubber, adhesives, vinyl tiles, woods and more. It can withstand moisture vapor emission rates of 10lbs/1000sq.ft./24hrs. But it is only suitable for concrete that’s a minimum of ten days old at the time of application.

VaporControl Primer 1P

The Dex-O-Tex Vapor Control 1P exceeds the Standard Practice for Two-Component Resin Based Membrane-Forming Moisture Mitigation Systems for Use Under Resilient Floor Coverings, designated ASTM F3010 – 13. It is designed for vapor suppression on above- and below-grade concrete and is placed on the negative side of the concrete substrate (between the concrete slab and the surfacing system).

If you want to use this high-performance moisture-resistant primer in your project, remember that it is recommended only for concrete that’s at least three days old at the time of application.

No matter which product you choose, you can feel confident your flooring project gets the moisture barrier system it needs to last for years. Give us a call today to know more about our product specifications.

Advantages

Our concrete moisture barrier systems provide superior performance and come with the following advantages:

• Meets ASTM F3010

ASTM F3010 is the only industry standard practice for moisture mitigation on concrete slabs in the US. Our products meet the F3010 specifications; our VaporControl Primer 1Peven exceeds them. With our industry-standard moisture mitigation systems, you can rest easy knowing your project will have durable flooring.

• Reduces or eliminates the negative effects of moisture vapor emissions

The negative effects of moisture vapor emissions include mold growth, chipping and pitting, blistering, cracking and heaving, adhesive breakdown, and total concrete failure. Application of our products days after the completion of concrete flooring can give it a great chance to avoid or lessen the damaging effects of moisture releases.

• High compressive, flexural, and tensile strengths

When the flooring doesn’t allow moisture to pass through easily, the moisture from below the concrete slab builds up and gets trapped beneath the flooring. This causes the surface of the floor to chip, crack, or break. Our barrier systems protect the flooring from the moisture vapor buildup and other possible damages.

• Excellent adhesion to damp concrete

Prompt fixes to moisture problems prevent major damages in the future and ensure long-term quality flooring. But not all moisture prevention techniques and products can be done or applied immediately. Our moisture barrier products are unlike any other; they can be applied over on-grade concrete that isn’t fully cured.

• 100% solids with no hydrocarbon solvents

Our VaporControl Primer products are environment-friendly, with zero volatile organic compound or VOC. They don’t also emit bad, harmful odor during placement and cure. Using our products is safe not only for our contractors but also for the other staff members of your construction project, and the environment as well.

• Installed only by professional, factory-trained Dex-O-Tex contractors

Once you specify Dex-O-Tex as your project’s provider of concrete moisture barrier systems, we assign your project to our professional, factory-trained contractors. Only people with training from us can purchase, handle, and install our products, allowing us to have control over the quality of the application.

Water-Resistant, Fire-Rated Decking

In many states, especially in California, having a Class A fire-rated, non-combustible decking is a must. After all, one major concern about building a deck is the potential for fire, especially if the area of installation will be near an outdoor grill or fire ring, or in a town where the risk of wildfire is high.

Class A Fire Rating Explained

Building codes and test standards have classified materials or assemblies depending on how they would perform in a fire. Class A fire ratings mean a material or construction assembly would cause a lower flame spread in the event of a fire. It could slow down the spread of fire or even reduce its intensity. Thus, Class A fire-rated materials and assemblies are required in many states.

In California, for instance, Chapter 7A of the state’s building code requires builders to create an acceptable defensible space around the home or building, and this includes the deck area. Chapter 7A specifies the mandatory use of fire-retardant materials in residential and commercial decks across the state.

Fire-Retardant Decking System

Our Weatherwear is an industry-leading, fire-retardant system specially designed for decks, balconies, observation decks, promenades, and other pedestrian surfaces. It is highly resistant to fire, keeping your construction compliant with the local building codes and industry standards.

In addition, Weatherwear uses a unique multi-layered system that features a slip sheet that allows it to float over normal building movement. This makes it highly resilient not only in the event of a fire but also against other harsh weather conditions.

A Range of Waterproofing Solutions

Besides our water and fire rated decking, we have a wide selection of waterproofing solutions for concrete surfaces. We have a waterproof application suited for raised access flooring. If your project requires waterproof coating and sealers for promenade decks, you can find what you need in our line of products. Our selection also includes waterproof flooring for equipment rooms, vehicle parking, and walkways.

No matter what kind of building or residential property you operate, waterproofing is a wise investment that prevents deterioration, improves aesthetics, and lowers maintenance costs. Browse through our waterproofing products to find the right system for your project requirements.

Decorative and Terrazzo Flooring

Dex-O-Tex decorative and terrazzo floors are one of the best flooring options on the market because they offer elegant, durable, and low-maintenance flooring solutions for commercial and residential environments.

Contact a Dex-o-Tex rep for product info and recommendations

In the past, terrazzo was made by mixing small marble rocks with clay and then grinding and polishing the surface until it’s smooth, showcasing the decorative design of the marbles. Now, terrazzo flooring is available in seamless systems. Small marble chips, colorful stones, and decorative glass pieces are embedded in concrete bases that are polished and buffed to a high shine.

With its striking details and durable concrete material, terrazzo flooring creates a lasting impression while providing a hard-wearing surface. If you plan to install terrazzo or decorative flooring in your next construction project, Dex-O-Tex is the supplier and installer you must include in your specifications.

Dex-O-Tex Terrazzo Flooring for Outdoor Applications

Terrazzo flooring has long been associated with elegant, decorative interior floors. But it’s a flooring material that’s perfect for outdoor applications as well. In fact, terrazzo flooring was first used on terraces in Venice, Italy.

Sustainable Flooring

Historically, Venetian construction workers mixed job-site scraps with clay to create inexpensive flooring for their terraces and patios at home. Terrazzo flooring remains one of the most environment-friendly flooring options today. It is made of many recycled aggregates, including glass chips, marble rocks, and other suitable materials.

Customized Aggregates

Terrazzo allows construction projects to have flooring with intricate, customized patterns and designs. With Dex-O-Tex terrazzo flooring, you may select virtually any color or pattern combination. You may even request to substitute marble chips for granite, mother-of-pearl, or other aggregates for an additional price.

Hard-Wearing Surface

Because of its scrap-bonded nature, terrazzo flooring can withstand high foot traffic and harsh weather conditions. It can be an ideal flooring for residential patios and even outdoor pavers in commercial buildings. Also, Dex-O-Tex uses long-lasting, scratch-resistant flooring and coating products to ensure durability.

Safe, Slip-Resistant Flooring

Many outdoor floors are highly slippery when wet, but terrazzo can be finished with much less gloss to ensure a safer exterior environment. Plus, unlike wood materials and separated stones, terrazzo flooring means there’s no need to worry about splinters or dislodged materials that can be trip hazards.

Why Should You Specify the Right Floor Coating?

Water seeping through the cracks or vulnerable spots of concrete floor systems brings nothing but bad news. It soaks through the porous sub-floor material, encouraging mold and bacteria to form. If the flooring is at an upper level, water can also seep through the ceiling of the room below and cause leaks and property damage.

Water damage in concrete flooring can be prevented with residential or industrial epoxy floor coating. It can make concrete flooring sturdy enough even you frequently hose it down or mop it with chemical solutions or water.

Why Go for Epoxy Coating?

Besides being resistant to water and chemical fluids, epoxy coating offers many other advantages compared with other traditional types of concrete floor coating:

• A high-gloss surface that can significantly increase the brightness of interior areas
• Durable surface that is enough to withstand heavy and continuous foot and machinery traffic
• Anti-slip additive options for enhanced pedestrian safety
• Flexibility to apply it in different patterns to create decorative driveways or visible walkable areas
• Low to no maintenance

Freshened-Up Floors: Is It Time to Replace Your Business’ Flooring?

Open plan office space

The flooring of your property is one of the first things that your customers see. Aside from complementing the design and interior of your business, it needs to be scratch-free and durable to attract customers. Your business’ floorings are the most-used too, receiving high foot traffic every day.

For this reason, your business’ floors may already be looking dull and damaged – and this is completely normal. No matter how much you take care of it, with the number of steps it receives every day, it is constantly subjected to wear and tear. Although proper maintenance is a huge help in prolonging the lifespan of your business’ flooring, there will come a time that it will need restoration.

If you think that day has come for your property, you have two choices: purchase all new flooring or repair the existing material.

Evaluate your current flooring

The condition of your current flooring is the most important factor to consider before deciding on anything. If there are only a few scratches and a dull finish, maybe a little freshening up is what your floorings need. When it comes to repairing floors, simply filling in the areas that need repair will do the trick.

On the other hand, if your business’ current flooring is filled with tough stains, dangerous floor cracks, and large scuffs, you might benefit more from and may even save more money with a complete replacement. Unlike repairing, completely replacing your entire flooring is not a do-it-yourself project. When replacing the flooring at your place of business, you need to hire an expert floor restoration and installation company.

Decide the new look you want for your flooring

Trendy and Edgy Salon

When it comes to aesthetics, replacing the entire flooring is obviously a better option. Not only will there be a consistent look with replacement, but it is also a chance to get a brand new style. If you think your business’ flooring is not only damaged but outdated as well, replacing the entire thing is probably the best option.

If you have decided to completely replace your property’s flooring, make sure you choose materials and finishes that will stand the test of time, both in terms of style and durability. Whether you opt for glossy, semi-glossy, or matte, it will take another couple of years before you replace these floors again. As such, when deciding on new flooring, do not rely on trends. Instead, choose a look that will complement the interiors of your space and will be appealing to your clients and customers.

Protecting your new floorings

If your business space is a high traffic area where spills and abrasions are likely to happen, the coating you choose for your flooring plays an important role. Using a urethane cement sealer and urethane cement coating is a popular choice as this type of flooring system provides durability in tough environments. Additionally, it also has a glossy, resistant finish which makes it an excellent option for showrooms, where foot traffic is always a top consideration.

As for its benefits, a urethane cement sealer makes your flooring highly resistant to abrasions and lessens the possibilities of stains and scratches. Cracks in your floors, which are a breeding ground for bacteria, can also be prevented through sealer application.

Giving your flooring a new life

Choosing the right sealer is an important decision, as this will determine the life span of your business’ floorings. Dex-o-tex has over 80 years of expertise in advanced flooring, coating, and waterproofing. Not sure if urethane cement sealer is perfect for your project? Contact us today and we’ll help you find the right flooring system for your space.

Benefits Of Using Epoxy Coating on Concrete Floors

Applying epoxy on concrete flooring

Whether it is commercial or residential, a good flooring system contributes to the productivity and safety of an area.

Cracks and potholes on your floor can be dangerous to individuals and can damage equipment used in the workspace. Water damage to concrete floors is also dangerous. Once water enters the concrete, it can encourage mold and bacteria growth. What is worse, water damage can be problematic if it affects a floor on an upper level, causing leakage on the lower levels.

Applying a coating material provides another layer of protection for your concrete floors. There are many choices of coating material available on the market, which often makes the decision-making tricky. Several factors, such as the daily floor traffic, the durability of the coating material used and the overall look of the material, need to be taken into account.

Epoxy coating on concrete floors is ideal for many commercial and residential applications. Once applied, the epoxy coating helps make the floor more durable and resistant to many factors, without sacrificing aesthetics.

Durability

Concrete floors coated with epoxy are resistant to scratches, abrasions and impact. They can also help the floor withstand heavy loads, making them ideal for use in the manufacturing industry where heavy equipment is frequently used.

Epoxy-coated floors are also non-porous, meaning dust, dirt and stains won’t be able to penetrate them. The fact that epoxy coatings make floors impermeable makes them easier clean. Aside from regular cleaning to avoid yellowing, epoxy-coated floors require less recoating and little to no maintenance.

Resistant

paint roller on concrete floor of construction

Epoxy-coated floors are resistant to many chemical and temperature changes, making them ideal for industrial plants that are prone to accidental spills or chemical leaks that can ruin the floor.

Concrete floors coated with epoxy are also less slippery. A smooth, non-slippery surface contributes to boosting productivity in the workspace. Epoxy-coated floors reduce the daily wear on transport vehicles used in manufacturing, allowing for faster material transfer, without causing damage to the floor.

Non-Toxic

Epoxy is an environment-friendly coating material that does not erode or dissolve easily into its environment. Since it is temperature resistant, it will not easily dissipate into the air. Even if it does, cured epoxy is considered relatively harmless.

Boosts aesthetics

Epoxy-coated floors leave a high-quality shine once they dry. Ideal for showrooms, the shine could add attractiveness to cars or exhibits because it helps improve the brightness of an interior by reflecting light.

Epoxy coatings also come in different colors and styles, so the possibilities of using them for decorative purposes are endless.

Using different colors for your epoxy coating can also be used to define different work zones. Different colors can separate the safety zones from the forklift traffic zones or any other work zones in an industrial plant, contributing to work productivity and safety.

Our epoxy systems are specifically engineered to protect concrete floors from water damage and other harsh conditions, without compromise aesthetics.

Solid Protection: How to Prevent Moisture Problems for Your Concrete Flooring Projects

treating and smoothening concrete flooring

Concrete flooring is known for its durability and timeless aesthetic. Despite its reputation as a low-maintenance option for both residential and commercial projects, however, it’s susceptible to moisture and vapor problems if it isn’t installed properly. When a concrete floor has excess moisture, your clients may notice the following problems days, or even years, after finishing your project:

  • Uneven surfaces, which can lead to slips and falls. If your clients have laminate, tile, or carpet floors, they may notice some panels popping up or sinking as well.
  • Bubbling and cracking on the surface, which ruins the look of bare-concrete flooring.
  • Mold growth, especially if they use tiles or carpets that keep the concrete damp and away from light and heat.
  • Crumbling, which can not only ruin a floor’s aesthetic, but also create holes and ridges that people could trip on.

These issues are expensive and exhausting to deal with, as you often have to remove and replace the flooring you just laid out. Worst case scenario: you’ll lose one of your valuable clients because of this blunder. If you want to get things right the first time, consider these suggestions to moisture-proof your next flooring project.

Take Your Time

When you’re following a strict timeline, you may be pressured to rush a few steps to get things done on the dot. This may lead you to cut time and resources for drying the concrete before installing your flooring materials, which causes the excess vapor from your curing process to be trapped inside the slab. As such, it’s important to extend your drying time, or at least keep it flexible, for your next project. If your client wants to get the job done as soon as possible, you can always use heaters and dehumidifiers to accelerate the process.

Run Some Tests

After curing and drying, test the concrete’s moisture level before you add any flooring material to it. One way to do this is by using a relative humidity (RH) probe. The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association suggests achieving 75% to 80% RH before installing any floor coverings.

Use a Moisture Mitigation System

If you want to be sure that your newly-constructed flooring doesn’t run into any problems, specify a moisture mitigation system for your project. Our VaporControl Primer 200-E and VaporControl Primer 1P seal decking allows vapor to rise to the surface, which lets you be more confident that the concrete you install won’t run into any moisture issues in the long run. Plus, both products can be administered over on-grade concrete that hasn’t been fully cured yet, in case your timeline gets accelerated. While moisture is an important part of making concrete flooring durable and adaptive, too much of it can cause a host of issues that need expensive and time-consuming repairs. Don’t let your clients lose trust in your business. Create a better schedule that allows your concrete to dry properly, run tests before you add anything else, and use moisture barrier decking to make sure the concrete is protected from vapor problems. Check all these boxes for every project and you’re sure to get repeat business and recommendations.

Decked Out: Improvements You should Make to Your Hotel’s Pool Deck

 

Your guests will be flocking to your pool to keep themselves cool this summer. However, you don’t want to greet them with a cracked deck, outdated lounge chairs, and dead greenery. That’s one or two stars you won’t get back from a review. Consider making these improvements to your pool deck and give your guests the refreshingly warm welcome they deserve.

Give Your Guests Better Seats

Lounge chairs keep your guests relax before or after taking a dip. Some people use it just to get a natural tan from the sun. This is why it’s important to provide your guests with clean and comfortable seats. Don’t just settle for plastic ones, get a chaise lounge made of quality wood and steel. If you’re on a budget, you can always refurbish old ones by sanding off rust for steel chairs, sealing wooden ones with lacquer or varnish, and finishing the work off with a fresh coat of paint.

Make sure the cushions are UV protected to keep them looking great despite being under the sun for a long time. You may also want to use treatment sprays on them to keep mold and mildew from staining their fabric.

Maintain Your Nooks

You don’t want your guests to stay in a dusty and rotting cottage when they want to find refuge from the summer sun. Inspect your nooks for any structural problems or wood rot, and have them repaired immediately. You should also repaint and revarnish your cottages to make sure that their wood is sealed and protected from the sun’s heat and summer rain showers.

Modern and luxurious deck

Get Closer to Nature

If you already have an array of plants surrounding your pool, all you need to do is to hire a landscape services provider to clean it up and maintain the greenery. If you don’t have a landscape yet, however, you may want to consider putting up some plant boxes to grow palm trees and ornamental grasses like lemongrass and fescue in. These plants make your pool area look more serene and relaxing. Plus, your guests will appreciate the fresher air and natural cooling effect they provide.

Improve Your Deck

Constant exposure to the sun and water can deteriorate your pool’s concrete deck and cause it to lose its grip. This is a serious safety hazard, as over 1 million people visit the ER every year because of slip and fall injuries. It’s worth closing off the area for a few days to install waterproof deck covering to protect it from the harsh summer heat, water and chlorine from your pool, and constant foot traffic. This lets it look better and maintain its grip for longer.

Your pool is one of the most important amenities your hotel offers, especially during hot summer days. Apart from regular cleaning, you should make sure the deck is safe and comfortable for guests to use. Take all these tips into consideration and your pool might just give you the five-star review you’ve always wanted to get.

Protect Your Concrete Against Water and Fire Damage

When it comes to protecting your concrete floors, ask your contractor for deck covering that provides water and fire-resistance. Here at Dex-O-Tex, we offer a large collection of commercial surfacing that can be applied to garages, decks, walkways, and balconies. Our products, like the Weatherwear system, protects your decking surfaces from water and fire damage. They’re also environmentally friendly so you don’t have to worry about adding to your building’s carbon footprint.

Food & Beverage: Maintaining Your Commercial Kitchen

clean commercial kitchen in a restaurant

Maintaining a hygienic commercial kitchen is one of the biggest challenges of running a busy restaurant. As a business owner, manager or chef, it is important to have a system in place as well as an outline of how to keep your kitchen in top shape. When you implement a system for your staff to follow, you educate them of good practices that prevent common hazards such as slips and fires. It is important to conduct regular inspections to ensure that your kitchen is safe for your employees and customers. This way, you prevent unexpected breakdowns that can affect your kitchen’s productivity.

Schedule professional maintenance

To keep your kitchen running smoothly, conduct regular preventive maintenance. Make sure your equipment is consistently performing to save you time and money on repairs. Replace broken and worn out parts to keep them functioning for many years. Should repairs be required, you can call in a professional to troubleshoot for you.

Professionals will provide your business with all the reliable repairs and replacements required for your team to prepare a great meal for your customers. They will also assess your staff’s activities, provide safety regulations, identify immediate and potential hazards, respond to unsafe situations and look for ways to improve your current system.

Ensure sanitation

Cleanliness is the key to a successful restaurant or hotel. With regular cleaning, you ensure that the food coming out is safe for your customers to eat. There are some cleaning jobs that can be accomplished monthly, while there are others that must be done regularly.

Food preparation takes place in the kitchen, so you can expect your countertops and hard surfaces to be a breeding ground for bacteria. These should be wiped clean a couple of times a day to ensure that the food you will serve is safe for consumption. Appliances and equipment such as ovens, toasters, fryers, grills and coffee makers should be deep cleaned weekly so they stay in excellent condition. Your ceiling, floor and walls should also be wiped daily to remove grease and food particles. Wash out your exhaust vents and hoods every few months to remove grease and grime. Finally, do an extensive cleaning of your racks, shelves and cabinets every six months.

Inspect your flooring

Every day, your kitchen flooring is exposed to heavy industrial cooking equipment, extreme temperatures and spills. With overall constant use, your surface will require annual floor preservation. To maintain your flooring, ensure a slip-resistant surface that won’t surrender to the daily application of harsh cleaning agents. Waterproof epoxy floor coating will help protect your concrete floor against liquid damage, saving you expensive routine maintenance costs. This resinous finish provides a hardwearing, tough and scratch-resistant surface that performs well in areas, like walk-in freezers, which are subject to water immersion.
