Featured Video: The Science Behind Land Science
Land Science offers the most advanced technologies designed to mitigate vapor intrusion. The use of nitrile-advanced latex and metalized films provides the most protection available in the industry. TerraShield, MonoShield, and Nitra-Seal deliver best-in-class results, including a higher level of chemical resistance and superior constructability. Environmental professionals are also now turning to MonoShield, a new preemptive vapor barrier at large warehouses and brownfield redevelopment sites.

Leading Warehouse Developer Saves Significant Development Time Due to Ease of Installation
The former Hazel Park Raceway was the site of a large warehouse development, located in a designated Opportunity Zone. In the course of evaluating potential remedial options for the 650,000 square foot warehouse facility (Tri-County Commerce Building #2), consulting firm SME approached Land Science, a division of REGENESIS, to incorporate a vapor barrier system to address the harmful vapor intrusion.
The Fastest Vapor Barrier To Install Is Also One of the Toughest
Composed of an innovative metalized film, MonoShield sets the standard for preventing diffusion and permeation of chemical vapors. A nitrile-based asphalt latex that ensures a seal far more effective and easier to apply than tape-based or heat-welded systems, MonoShield offers the best of both worlds, providing developers with a viable long-term solution for reducing liability and protecting human health at a competitive cost.
Client Spotlight: Keith Brodock
Keith Brodock, Principal Engineer with Integral Consulting, Inc., enjoys working with Land Science and he especially appreciates how the company is well-positioned to respond quickly to the changing demands of project and site work. He shares, “It’s easy to work with Land Science… they provided accurate estimations and delivered Retro-Coat on time.” With regard to Land Science products, he says Retro-Coat is at the top of his list.
10 Reasons To Consider Retro-Coat To Protect Your Property Investment
Vapor intrusion occurs when there is a migration of vapor-forming chemicals from any subsurface contaminant source into an overlying building. When vapor intrusion is detected, it becomes necessary to design a solution to mitigate the problem. Retro-Coat, a chemically resistant coating designed to resist aggressive chemical vapors, is a cost-effective technology with many advantages over alternative options for existing structures and has been gaining popularity and acceptance as an effective vapor intrusion mitigation strategy.
Proven, Cost-Effective Solution for Existing Structures
Developed by the Land Science Research and Development team specifically for existing structures, the Retro-Coat Vapor Intrusion Coating System is a complete product line that consists of chemically resistant materials to properly protect existing structures from the threat of contaminant vapor intrusion. A vapor intrusion condition is most commonly found when the existing structure was operating as, or in close proximity to, a dry cleaner, gas station, or manufacturing facility.
Vapor Intrusion Training Library
At Land Science, we know many environmental firms are investing time to focus on staff training to get up-to-date on new technologies and regulations. We have prepared a library of pre-recorded webinars available on our website at no charge. Topics include vapor intrusion regulations and mitigation. We will also provide certificates of attendance for any webinar viewed upon request by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
