ISE Logik Industries - MVRA 900

ISE Logik Industries MVRA 900, a Certified ASTM C494 Type S Admixture, is formulated to react with the hydroxide ions produced by the cement hydration process. In doing so, this creates additional hydration products within the capillary pores and blocks them, effectively shutting down moisture vapor movement through the concrete.

Manufactured with deionized water to remove trace mineral ions and containing no chloride based materials, our products will not promote nor contribute to corrosion of embedded or reinforcing steel.

Uses image


ISE Logik Industries MVRA 900 has been specifically formulated for use in normal and light weight concrete mixes to produce low permeability concrete across a wide spectrum of mix designs. Typical uses of ISE Logik Industries MVRA 900 include but are not limited to:

  • Slabs to receive moisture sensitive flooring and structural concrete roof decks
      o w/cm from 0.40 to 0.54
  • Elevator pits and retaining walls
      o w/cm from 0.40 to 0.54
  • Water retaining structures such as swimming pools and cisterns
      o w/cm from 0.40 to 0.54
  • Tunnels and other underground structures
  • Civil engineering projects of any magnitude (i.e., secant piles, roadways, dams, bridges)

Benefits image


Each manufactured lot of our products is produced under some of the most exacting chemical manufacturing processes available, using only deionized water as its base ingredient. Deionized water guarantees that all steps to prevent the unwanted introduction of chloride and sulfate into the concrete batching sequence are being taken. Further, ISE Logik Industries MVRA 900 is the only product that independently performance tests in hardened concrete each and every manufactured lot against the following standards, prior to shipment:

  • ASTM D5084 - to prove greatly reduced permeability
      o Permits flooring to be installed in as little as 8 days after concrete placement
      o Protects concrete finish from moisture vapor emission failure from the concrete
      o Protects against alkali and efflorescence attack from the concrete
  • ASTM C1260 - to prove alkali silica reactivity mitigation
      o Increased hydration consumes residual pore space moisture and blocks capillary movement of moisture
      o Reduces moisture available for alkali silica reactivity to occur
      o Reduces further corrosion of any embedded or reinforcing steel
  • ASTM C157 - to prove shrinkage reduction
      o Reduces slab warp, plastic shrinkage cracking and crazing
  • Increases compressive strength per ASTM C39/39M
      o Often achieves desired strength weeks before the standard 28 days
