I agree they are a contaminant. And you are placing the entire warranty on the back of the installer, a Joe six-pack who is really more concerned about getting out of the building and watching the ball game at the tavern later on.

The flooring manufacturer will walk away.
The adhesive manufacturer will walk away.
The installer will shrug his shoulders, say he did his job by the book and has no idea why the job failed.
And the silicate manufacturer will take the position that the installation was faulty and walk away.

The owner, the GC and the flooring installer will be left to make repairs and eat the cost.

This is not a fairytale, I have seen it happen dozens of times.

Fair warning! If you want to spray a 'contaminant' on your slab in DIRECT violation of the warranty requirements set by the product manufacturers, well good luck to you.
