Moisture Stop

DRYCRETE™ MOISTURE STOP

PERMANENT INTEGRAL MOISTURE BARRIER

DryCrete being appliedOur most prolific formulation for integral waterproofing, resistance to acid/chemical contaminant attacks, to mitigate moisture vapor emission and Alkali Silica Reactivity (ASR), and as a pre-treatment to ensure sustainability of surface coatings or floor covering materials. Excellent curing compound for interior surfaces.

DRYCRETE™ Moisture Stop is a user-friendly, environmentally safe, white (clear-drying), non-flammable, penetrating liquid which is non-toxic, with zero VOC. It readily penetrates deep into substrate, using concrete's natural porosity, depositing internally produced colloidal silicate residual (gel), that subsequently form an insoluble unique 100% solids water and contaminant barrier, as it reacts with un-hydrated cement (free alkali) within the concrete slab. This 100% solids integral barrier contains its very own extremely tiny pore network, uniquely and effectively mimicking the pouring of concrete within concrete.

RECOMMENDED USE: DRYCRETE™ Moisture Stop is recommended as a densifier and moisture vapor blocker prior to the application of cementitious overlays, epoxy coatings, traditional flooring materials, and in concrete polishing applications. It can be used for related decorative concrete applications including flatwork, stamped and textured concrete, concrete counter tops, concrete masonry units, stucco, mortar, grout, and most any other Portland cement based surface.

BENEFITS:

  • Exhibits a high degree of penetration without leaving any residue on the surface.
  • Significantly decreases un-hydrated cement (free alkali) thereby increasing concrete's density.
  • Reduces permeability by greater than 90%.
  • Highly effective in protecting the concrete surface against acid & salt/chemical erosion.
  • Formulated using "green technology" and LEED credit qualification.
  • No harmful fumes or objectionable odors for trouble free applications on interior projects.
  • Ready to use formula allows for easy application and labor cost savings on the job.
  • Can be placed on fresh concrete. No waiting period.
LEED CREDIT CONSIDERATIONS: Materials and Resources:  MR Credit 1.2  Building re-use. Environmental Quality: EQ Credits 4.2: Low emitting materials (VOC <25 g/L).

PREVENT BLUSHING

Whitening of concrete sealers – also known as ”Blushing”
+

PREVENT SPALLING

When the water in concrete is able to freeze, it then expands & causes damage to concrete surfaces.
+

PREVENT MOISTURE ISSUES

Leaves no surface residual to impede or hinder bonding of any coatings or adhesives.
+

PREVENT EFFLORESCENCE

A white crystalline powder-like substance which forms on surface of concrete, stucco, brick or masonry.
