Moisture-mitigating concrete admixtures manufacturer ISE Logik has teamed up with Arcosa, America’s largest producer of rotary kiln expanded shale and clay lightweight aggregate for concrete, to produce a structural lightweight concrete system called Assurance LWC.
“Assurance LWC combines our MVRA 900 admixture for concrete moisture control…with Arcosa’s remarkable structural lightweight aggregate to assure a successful roofing or flooring outcome,” stated David Seland, principal at ISE Logik. “This is a first in our industry.”
Many of today’s building construction projects are on a fast-track schedule that often fail to allow sufficient drying of the structural lightweight concrete slabs that make up the flooring or roofing systems. The moisture in these slabs, if not controlled, can lead to costly and time-consuming flooring or roofing failures.
“We are excited about the ability to deliver all the benefits of our structural lightweight concrete aggregate without moisture mitigation concerns in one innovative product,” observed Jeffrey Speck, general manager of technical sales for Arcosa Lightweight.
Both companies state that the new system provides “all the benefits of structural lightweight concrete without the concrete moisture vapor emission concerns that plague timely and cost-effective installation of flooring, coatings and roofing.”
The Assurance LWC system is available across the U.S. For more information, visit https://assurancelwc.com.
