A Permanent Solution

HOW CAN DRYCRETE BECOME A PERMANENT SOLUTION OVER THE LIFE OF THE CONCRETE?

In its simplest description – DRYCRETE Moisture Stop becomes “concrete within concrete”.

The increased hydration of the free alkali or un-hydrated cement reduces the internal permeability of the concrete mass. The greater than 90% average permeability reduction results in the stoppage of internal moisture migration to the surface matrix. Existing internal moisture content within the capillary voids at the time of application, acts as a conduit, which facilitates DRYCRETE Moisture Stop to reach greater depth, using the existing internal paths of reticulation.

After 24 hours of application, the precipitate turns into a 100% solids gel mass, effectively obstructing moisture migration from the underside of the concrete mass. Additionally, the increased densification of the concrete arrests dusting, and in the process purges and stops efflorescence. Moisture is contained to the surface of the slab, and can only be added from topical intrusion, such as flooding.
