ram board for concrete surfaces

Originally designed to meet the demands of the film industry, Ram Board has since become a leading name in floor protection, including Ram Board for concrete surfaces.

What is Ram Board? 

Ram Board protects concrete floors (among other floor types) from damage during construction, remodeling, or other flooring installation projects. It is made of a thick, durable material resistant to punctures, tears, and moisture, making it ideal for use on concrete floors.

What is Ram Board used for? 

Concrete surface professionals utilize Ram Board to initiate the best possible curing process for their installation, construction project, or rework. The engineering of Ram Board allows for an efficient cure and optimal surface protection. 

Why Use Ram Board for Floor Protection, Even Concrete

There are several benefits of using RAM Board on concrete floors during concrete construction and flooring projects:

  1. Protection: Ram Board provides a barrier between the concrete floor and any materials, tools, or equipment that may come into contact with it, helping to prevent damage to the concrete.
  2. Durability: Ram Board is made of quality material that can withstand the wear and tear of a construction site, making it a long-lasting solution for floor protection.
  3. Ease of use: Ram Board is easy to install and can be cut to fit around any obstacles or irregularly shaped areas. It can also be easily removed once the project is complete, leaving the concrete floor in good condition.
  4. Cost-effective: Using Ram Board can help to reduce the costs associated with repairing or replacing damaged concrete floors, making it a cost-effective solution for protecting your investment.

How does RAM Board work?

Concrete floors need airflow for an adequate curing process. Ram Board is made from recycled materials and designed with Vapor-Cure® and Spill Guard® technology, making it perfect for curing. Vapor-Cure® allows air flow while the Ram Board protects the surface from abrasion and unwanted moisture. 

Why does airflow matter in curing?

Airflow is important in concrete curing because it helps regulate the concrete’s temperature and humidity as it hardens. Proper airflow ensures that the concrete cures at a consistent rate, which is vital for achieving the desired strength and durability of the finished product.

Is RAM Board waterproof?

Yes, Ram Board is waterproof thanks to the inclusion of Spill Guard® engineering. 

Why should I use floor protection products when installing concrete surfaces?

Floor protection, in general, can provide a three-fold solution during concrete construction. 

  • These products can prevent installation disruption or chipping from heavy machinery. Concrete professionals will often work with heavy-duty machinery and equipment that can disrupt the installation process if mishandled, so it’s important to be using floor protection generally and at every stage – not just in curing with Ram Board.
  • Using floor protection products can also help with cleaning maintenance after installation, an especially helpful factor in commercial settings where cleanliness is highly valued. 
  • There’s also the operator’s safety at play, here. Unstable surfaces (such as those being remodeled or installed) pose an accident risk for workers.
