7 Factors to Consider When it Comes to Under-Slab Vapor Barrier Placement
Baker Concrete Solves a Complex Problem with a Simple Solution: Beast® Form Stake and Beast® Concrete Accessories
Spencer Wood had a problem without a solution. The project engineer for Baker Concrete had a massive data center project in New Mexico that came with a critical demand from waterproofing consultants and the building’s owners: absolutely no punctures
in the below-slab vapor barrier.
Vapor barrier thickness is a key attribute of a below-slab vapor barrier but it does not tell the whole story. Tune into this Stego IQ episode where Stego Technical Director Dan Marks provides some insight on all the key attributes that make up a high-performing under-slab vapor barrier which is puncture resistance, tensile strength, and most importantly permeance and longevity.
Stego IQ returns with the latest episode dispelling the myth about vapor barriers and slab curl. Dan Marks, Stego's Technical Director, returns to the screen to explain the short term slab curl effects with a vapor barrier as well as the long term effects of slab curl if you do not install a below slab vapor barrier.

As that landscape expanded, it was much easier to simply move to new areas of development and ignore sites that involved some level of liability, contamination, assessment, cleanup, government regulators, and more. For generations, brownfields have been not just literally – but figuratively – toxic to communities.
