When QUALITY products of this nature are PROPERLY used, there is no need for the several dollar a square foot mitigation systems. Do you really think the mitigation manufacturers are going to sing the praises of such a product?

An adhesive is the manufacturer's bread and butter- you need it whether the slab is wet or not. They can live without selling mitigation systems. They need to know that a product is not going to cause their adhesive to fail, and it's not their responsibility to put the R & D into it. By the way, the silicate-based product I'm talking about is as pricey and in some cases more expensive that "standard mitigation systems".
