      Comments about Bostik Moisture Barrier:

      I am not happy at all with this product. I installed it according to the instructions and found that it left trowel marks (3/16 x 5/16 V notch trowel) 12 hours later after drying. The product was acclimated in the same room as the installation for five days. The room temperature was a constant 74 deg F. The instructions give you the impression that it is somewhat self leveling. IT IS Not. After drying I could see the floor in several places where the trowel points were in contact with the floor.

          It is like thick molasses, and dries to a thick rubber cement consistency. Very easy to apply a bit to thick and so coverage was about 3/4 what the can actually suggests.

                when you really need a moisture barrier....this is an impenetrable barrier and has the addred effect of adding a little cushion.

                Used as moisture barrier over concrete slab before installing hardwood flooring.

                Some reviews stated the product smelled but I didn't observe that at all.

                  To seal the slab befor hardwood installation. It really gives you confidence about sealing out moisture. Especially because my last installer really didn't take any sealing precautions which resulted in floor buckling. This time I know, the installer took extra precautions to fix my slab and to seal it before installing the hardware floors. Great!!

                      Used this product as a mositure barrier (although I never had a moisture issue) for my concrete slab and this also doubled as a sound proofer as well. This is thick and will need to be mixed/stirred prior to use. The benefits it added were great and I would recommend this product for your next slab installation.

                        I had laminate flooring which I pulled up when I discovered a moisture problem. Should I use Bostik MVP to seal the concrete? Do I still lay plastic on concrete as moisture barrier when I replace with some new flooring and remaining laminate boards. I have been advised not to seal concrete. There was a lot of moisture and I have not found any leaks.

                          Yes. Troweled on Moisture Barrier is recommended if subfloor is on or below grade concrete. Always use the same manufacturer of moisture barrier and adhesive or combo type adhesive moisture barrier.

                          A:

                          [CAUTION] Most installation failures result from jobsite moisture.
                          Do not unpack or deliver flooring to the jobsite until moisture problems are corrected.
                          Note that flooring adhesives may have special requirements and limitations of use. Follow closely the adhesive labeling instructions and
                          adhesive Technical Data Sheet pertaining to moisture testing procedures, moisture barriers, and trowel size recommendations.
                          Depending on the selection and application of a particular adhesive, you may be required to use moisture barriers. When in doubt
                          about an adhesive application or requirement call the adhesive manufacturer. Not following the adhesive manufacturer’s
                          recommendations can lead to installation failure and void your warranty.

                      • Q:

                        I have an (40-year) old hardwood floor installed over a plywood base over a concrete slab. The plywood is elevated from the concrete slab (approx. 1/4") by slats spaced approx 12" apart. This provides some "give" in the boards over the slab. I would like to install new hardwood over the slab in a similar manner. Is this process recommended and if so, would this product be applied to the slab before floating the plywood base for the hardwood? Would there be a need for an additional vapor barrier? Can I still use a padding inbetween the plywood and the hardwood for softness and sound deadening?

                      • Q:

                        We are planning on laying down Bellawood Engineered Brazilian Cherry flooring on concrete, do we need to use this product as well as a moisture protecting underlayment?

                        Thanks in advance!

                          MVP - Bostik Moisture Barrier is just that; a moisture barrier. you will need the adhesive (Bostiks best or Dura-Grip) along with this barrier.
