Barrier One is a high performance concrete admixture developed by flooring experts to enable project teams to maintain demanding project schedules and to remain on budget. As an admixture, it is integral to the concrete, not surface applied, and its use will not interfere with the bonding of adhesives, resinous coatings or cementitious underlayments. In short…if it sticks to low porosity concrete, it sticks to Barrier One dosed concrete!

By closing down the capillary system, Barrier One facilitates suspended moisture that is irremovable yet available for sustained hydration. Therefore, the use of Barrier One results in concrete that is denser, stronger, with increased abrasion resistance, reduced slab warping, and significantly reduced permeability.
