DUAG-58 is releasable, non-flammable, non-hazardous and water-resistant, providing a strong, long-lasting bond. Due to its pressure sensitive characteristics, DUAG-58 eliminates concern about installing a non-porous backed floor covering over a non-porous substrate.  DUAG-58 can be used over all grade levels of concrete in the absence of excessive moisture and alkalinity. Moisture tests are required on all concrete subfloors regardless of grade level if the concrete is freshly poured or is classified as an older slab.
