Interested in environmentally friendly sealants
I am looking at sealing the concrete slab of my basement, a large living space.
1. I have examined three products: Enduroseal, Xypex and Lithi-tek LS 9500. All claim to emit no VOCs. Enduroseal hardens into nonsoluble silicate minerals. Xypex hardens into nonsolluble crystalline structure. Lithi- tek LS 9500 hardens at the nano level (I don't know more than that.) Are there other environmental considerations besides VOCs for a living space? Might they form dangerous dusts? How does one assess such products environmentally? Is there any authority to consult?
2. I have a vapor barrier under the slab. Is it ok to apply these if some of them are water based and go on with a hose?
