KOVARA® flooring underlayments for commercial and institutional buildings protect like no other moisture barrier system.
Every year, moisture causes over $1 billion in floor damage. KOVARA® moisture barriers are the industry's leading rolled barrier solution for protecting concrete floors from moisture. We've engineered our products to perform where relative humidity (RH) is highest. KOVARA® MBX protects against moisture in concrete slabs up to 99.5% RH and KOVARA® 95 protects up to 95% RH.
KOVARA® products also protect floors from alkalinity given off by concrete slabs. The result is a dramatic reduction in bumps and faults in tile and other finishes for a smooth, safe and appealing surface.
Versatile KOVARA® flooring products are fast and easy to install
KOVARA® flooring materials protect concrete floors in the highest-traffic environments, such as hospitals and retail stores. Their triple-layer construction enables the easy installation of all kinds of surfaces, including:
Carpet, vinyl and ceramic tile
Nearly every type of popular carpet
Engineered wood, bamboo and laminates
KOVARA® moisture barriers save you time and money because they're easy to install. Just roll onto the surface, tape the seams, cut in and you're done.
Our underlayments' superior dimensional stability simplifies installation because they lay flat on concrete. Unlike with epoxy, you can install KOVARA® products overnight and be back in business the next morning.
From seam tapes to flooring installation tools, ORCON® products cover all your flooring needs.
For top quality and performance, ORCON® seam tapes are flooring pros' choice for commercial and institutional buildings and residential homes. ORCON® seam tapes cover light-, medium- and heavy-traffic environments and almost every carpet backing imaginable. To make installation quick and easy, we make a full range of ORCON® tools and products, including:
- Cutters and wall trimmers
- Caulk guns
We bet you won't need help with installation. But if you do, our technical services team is here to train you, help with specs and warranties and solve any installation problem.
Produce strong concrete flooring — and slash costs — with our innovative concrete admixtures and fibers.
Need to mix or place strong flooring concrete that resists cracking, corrosion and other defects? It's all covered when you use our advanced concrete admixtures and fibers. Our concrete materials also help reduce costs at the plant and the job site.
For over 50 years, concrete producers and installers have used our products to make high-performance concrete, including:
- STRUX® products, such as STRUX® 90/40, distribute synthetic macro reinforcement equally throughout the concrete matrix. The results are corrosion- and crack-resistant concrete without the handling difficulties associated with steel fibers. STRUX® products save material costs too by achieving the same strength in thinner slabs.
- ECLIPSE® liquid admixtures decrease shrinking, cracking and curling. At the same time, they increase durability, lower maintenance costs and extend structural service life. Use ECLIPSE® products for all kinds of flooring concrete: indoors or outdoors, on-grade or above-grade.
- Used in mix designs with our ADVA® high-range water reducers, STRUX® and ECLIPSE® materials also enable faster placement of concrete and the extension of joints.
Engineered systems for high performance, extended-joint concrete slabs
Looking for high performance concrete slabs with reduced contraction joints and increased load capacity? Use our patented DUCTILCRETE® dual-layer engineered system for concrete floors. The DUCTILCRETE® engineered system is a combination of slab design, admixtures, fibers and method of placing the concrete floors. We make the journey to high performance and low maintenance concrete flooring easy: We provide engineered, stamped slab designs for your project. Qualified and trained licensees install and finish the concrete with our proprietary admixtures and fibers to produce extraordinary, extended-joint slabs. The best part: The entire project is supported by GCP technical resources – global experts in concrete construction.
Our Blue360sm Field Advantage team is at your service — at no extra cost — to help you optimize your mix designs to spec. Our field team also provides installation training and support at the job site.
