Moisture Reduction

Moisture Reduction.


NC-Vapor-Con (NC-VC) is a two component high strength, moisture tolerant coating designed to reduce vapor transmission in concrete, cement underlayment / overlayment surfaces, prior to installation of carpet, hard or soft surface tile, hardwood (solid or engineered), vinyl and VCT. NC-VC has excellent adhesion chemical resistance, flexural strength, and substrate penetration. This product is a stand alone coating when installed in multiple coats. Vapor-Con can be used with vapor transmission up to 12lbs/1000sqft/24hr. This product contains an anti microbial agent to prevent microorganisms from degrading the product and is specially formulated to resist mildew growth on the coating. This coating also resists bacterial odors.

Information on Biocides

These products do not protect users or others against food-borne (or disease causing) bacteria, viruses, germs, or other disease organisms. Always clean these products thoroughly after use. EPA regulations in 40CFR 152.25(a) exempt certain treated articles and substances from regulation under the Federal Insecticide, Fugicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) if specific conditions are met. The specific regulatory language is in section 152.25, exemptions for pesticides of a character not requiring FIFRA regulation, wherein it states, “(a treated articles or substances. An article or substance treated with, or containing, a pesticide to protect the treated article or substance itself (for example, paint treated with a pesticide to protect the paint coating or wood products treated to protect the wood against insect or fungus protect the wood against insect or fungus infestation), if the pesticide is registered for such use.” Known as the Treated Articles Exemption, this section provides an exemption from all requirements of FIFRA for qualifying articles or substances treated with, or containing a pesticide , if: (1) the incorporated pesticide is registered for use in or on the article or substance, and (2) the sole purpose of the treatment is to protect the articles or substance itself. As part of routine building maintenance, areas should be inspected for visible mold and the conditions causing the mold should be corrected to prevent mold from growing. Nikka Corp has been workingwith leading biocide manufacturers to develop coating products wherein the dry coating film of these products are mildew resistant, resists mold fungus and resists stains by mold. In addition, the dry coating film inhibits the growth of bacterial odors, resists microbial odor development and retards the growth and action of bacterial odors. Nikka Corp tested products with a blend of EPA registered biocides (EPA registration No. 1045-103 and 1706-196) for which 1045-103 has FDA approval under CFR 176.170, 176.180 and 176.300 (Refer to code for applicable limitations). Accordingly, our newly developed product line may be beneficial in any industry that requires a coating film to prevent microorganisms from degrading the product.
