ISE Logik is the No. 1 specialist in moisture vapor mitigation for new concrete slab construction or floor renovation over existing concrete. No one is more knowledgeable and more dedicated to stopping moisture vapor in its tracks, in floors and roof decks, than ISE Logik.
Founders David Seland and Dean Craft bring a combined 50 years of experience in the construction products and application industries. They provide an unsurpassed base of knowledge and experience for overcoming the challenges of concrete moisture in flooring and roofing systems. ISE Logik is also a leader in educating the industry through webinars and articles; as well as participating on various ASTM committees for establishing standards and best practices in roofing, flooring, and waterproofing.
- Our products admixture and topical coatings are listed as Construction Products - Building Products Category in Division 3 - Concrete and Division 9 - Finishes.
- Select ISE Logik products also carry HPD labeling and are found in Sustainable Minds and BIM.
- For new concrete, ISE Logik admixtures are formulated to stop moisture migration and warranted to 100 percent RH with no moisture testing required.
- For existing concrete, ISE Logik provides effective moisture vapor control with its 1-part topical coating that eliminates moisture testing and cures in just 8 hours.
