Protocol Products are designed to assist in improving all types of sub-flooring and flooring systems such as,

COATINGS (Urethane, epoxy, concrete paint, poly-urethanes and other systems)

  • Use VersaGuard42, before applying a paint or coating
  • Maintains surface profile for proper adhesion
  • Creates an impermeable barrier beneath the surface of the concrete
  • Prevents coating failure and delamination due to:
    • Moisture transmission from within the concrete
    • Efflorescence
    • Internal rebar corrosion

ADHESIVE-APPLIED FLOORING (Tile, vinyl, hardwood, laminate and carpet)

  • Use VersaGuard42, before applying a paint or coating
  • Maintains surface profile
  • Creates an impermeable barrier beneath the surface of the concrete
  • Prevents adhesive delamination and warping due to:
    • Moisture transmission from within the concrete
    • Efflorescence
    • Internal rebar corrosion

NATURAL OR DECORATIVE CONCRETE FLOORS & PAVERS

(Any concrete floor which would normally be treated with a sealant or repellant)

  • Use VersaGuard42, or DualGuard45 after concrete has properly cured or pavers have been laid, a surface sealer is not necessary and should not be used as it prevents the penetration of the product into the concrete.
  • Creates a permanent, impermeable membrane
  • Eliminates damage due to surface abrasion and erosion
  • Prevents staining due to liquids, oils and dirt
  • Eliminates damage due to surface water ingression
  • Minimizes damage due to de-icing salt corrosion
  • Improves resistance to environmental factors
  • Reduces damage due to chemical attack
  • Minimizes moss, mildew and organic growth

CHOOSING A PRODUCT

Before treating any surface with Protocol Products, determine future use and application of the surface.  DualGuard45 is effective in many walk-way / patio applications, yet caution should be used as liquids will pool on the surface an may cause a slipping hazard. VersaGuard42 should be used if paint or a coating will later be applied to the surface.
