Gas Protection Systems

PrīmXComposite Gas Protection flooring system against gas penetration (radon, methane and other harmful gases).

The PrīmXComposite flooring technology effectively eliminates the negative influence (i.e., cracks and need for joints) of restrained drying shrinkage on the concrete slab, by the use of proprietary shrinkage control additives.

The most common way for radon and other harmful gases to enter a building through the concrete flooring slabs and rafts is from the gas in the soil through pressure-driven transport mechanism.

When conventional concrete flooring solutions are applied, the extremely large number of shrinkage control joints, the openings of the control joints due to shrinkage, and the risk of additional cracks from restrained shrinkage. Due to the problematic cracking and joints in traditional concrete floor and foundation solutions, a fully tight gas-impermeable membrane must be installed under the entire slab surface to assure the gas-impermeability of such structure.

The PrīmXComposite flooring technology effectively eliminates the negative influence (i.e.,cracks and need for joints) of restrained drying shrinkage on the concrete slab, by the use of proprietary shrinkage control additives.

Visible results:

  • Safe and Gas protected solutions
  • Faster installation than typical solutions;
  • Improved durability.
