EFA+™ provides moisture protection
Bostik’s EFA+™ has low moisture vapor permeability and is not adversely affected by moisture. As a result, it will reduce moderate amounts of moisture vapor transmission through the concrete. When applied as directed as a moisture vapor membrane, it will prevent damages caused by subfloor moisture beneath dimensionally stable, engineered wood flooring only.
Bostik’s EFA+™ may be used for concrete slabs with elevated moisture levels up to 15 lbs. per 1,000 square feet per 24 hours (using an anhydrous calcium chloride test kit according to ASTM F-1869 test method), and up to 87% RH (tested in accordance with ASTM F-2170). For substrates that have an MVER of greater than 15 lbs or 87% RH, use Bostik’s MVP4™ prior to the application of Bostik’s EFA+™ for unlimited moisture vapor protection, or use Bostik Ultra-Set® SingleStep2™ or GreenForce®
EFA+™ provides superior elasticity and anti-fracture performance
Bostik's EFA+’s elastomeric characteristics establish an anti-fracture membrane that can bridge cracks up to 1/8" (3mm) which can occur in the substrate prior to or after installation. This superior elasticity allows the adhesive to move with the wood as it expands and contracts with changes in humidity and temperature over the life of the floor.
