Dur-a-flex FlooringDur-A-Flex Inc. has launched a new breathable epoxy system for floors with elevated moisture and salt content. The Vent-E formulation is designed to provide additional protection to concrete floors.

Epoxy floors are a long-standing choice for any environment requiring durable and seamless floors. As durable as epoxy flooring is, the combination of moisture and salts found in the substrate can be problematic. Epoxy flooring systems are impermeable, meaning they trap the moisture and salt below the surface. If the moisture and salt content is too high, the combination can cause blisters and adhesion failures.

The flooring industry typically combats issues like this by using moisture mitigating primers before installing an epoxy floor. If the moisture and salt levels exceed that option, using a cementitious urethane-based flooring system would be the next choice. In some cases, these solutions are excessive for the needs, timeline and/or budget of the project.

Vent-E bridges the gap between protective and seamless coatings and other resinous flooring systems. The permeability of Vent-E permits moisture to move through the slab and coating without causing unsightly blemishes or failures. Vent-E offers many of the same features of other protective epoxy flooring systems: stain and wear resistance, dust prevention and easy maintenance.

The breathable epoxy system is available in nine colours with a semi-gloss finish, installs quickly and easily, and is cured for foot traffic in as little as four to six hours. Vent-E is an ideal solution for commercial buildings, storage areas, warehouse floors, production areas, and more.

CFCM slingpsychrometer 400Paul N. Gardner USA, global distributors, producers, and designers of quality physical and inspection instruments for the paint, coatings, and related industries, has introduced a new offering: The compact, portable Sling Psychrometer.

As an easy way to measure relative humidity levels quickly, this uniquely compact Bacharach Sling Psychrometer accurately determines per cent relative humidity without the necessity of consulting complex tables. There is no need to wet the wick each time a reading is taken, and it contains a slide rule calculator which correlates wet and dry bulb thermometer indications for direct reading of relative humidity. When not in use, the thermometer case telescopes into the handle for protection.

The Sling Psychrometer consists of two thermometers that are turned by vigorously swinging the handle and exposing the thermometers to rapid air movement. These two thermometers are called dry bulb and wet bulb. The bulb of one thermometer is placed in direct contact with the room air to measure dry-bulb air temperature. The bulb of the other thermometer is covered with a silk or muslin sleeve that is kept moist to record the wet bulb temperature. Evaporation cools the wet bulb more than the dry bulb, and the humidity is obtained as a function of change in temperature. The atmospheric humidity is determined by calculations, steam tables, or using a psychrometric chart. Gardco.com
