New slab moisture readings before epoxy is installed over — there is a vapor barrier under
- Any thoughts if there are any other moisture concerns we are not thinking of where these reads should be concerning?
- It is possible to primer slab & epoxy just fine (flooring adherence wise). My question that no one seems to know thus far is how much is too much moisture to sandwich in (lock in) between a good vapor impermeable barrier below and epoxy surface impermeable barrier above?
- Will it: 1) dry out sides between sandwiched in 40×60 slab, 2) stay where it is and with minimal acceptable moisture level sandwiched staying at that level is fine, or 3) at/above X amount of moisture you don’t want to sandwich it in because will promote mold growth?
