Product Description:

Maxxon® DPM (Damp Proof Membrane) is a unique 2-component, moisture tolerant, high density, chemically enhanced epoxy product which prevents the passage of water vapor and moisture through concrete floors and walls on or below grade. Maxxon DPM eliminates delamination of adhesives, floor coverings and coatings. Maxxon DPM also prevents capillary infiltration of oil or other chemicals from the ground and can be used to treat oil contaminated slabs.

Product Advantages:

  • Water/Vapor/Oil Barrier Coating
  • Reduces moisture vapor emission
  • 1-coat application
  • Underlayment system installed next day
  • Applied to moist or dry concrete
  • High alkalinity barrier
