Enhances concrete to it’s maximum potential!

  • Permanent moisture control over the lifetime of the concrete substrate.
  • Does not alter surface tension or profile.
  • Does not interfere with adhesion of adhesives, coatings or sealers.
  • Deep, internal penetration within the capillary voids of the concrete matrix.
  • Alkali chemical bonding and reactivity.
  • Infinite particle size and polymer chains result in excellent depth and strength of resulting gel barrier.
  • Unique formulation of a composite, catalyzed silicate in colloidal form.
  • Excellent resistance to acid deterioration.
  • Significant resistance to organic and synthetic oils, including motor oil and hydraulic fluid.
  • Field proven performance for over 20 years.

Permanent Protection

  • Will not wear off or abrade off.
  • Average 150 to 200 mm into concrete substrate.
  • Treatment is a single application over the life of the concrete.
  • Works extremely well on underside and vertical applications
  • Multiple use on both commercial and residential projects.

  • A true “wet” cure, hardener and sealer, with consistent benefits of greatly reduced permeability, greater hydration and density, and chemical resistance. Cure Shield effectively retards evaporation during the curing process, while maintaining a sustainable waterproofing and acid/solvent resistant seal on the surface of the concrete mass, without affecting surface bonding quality.

DRYCRETE™ Moisture Stop is the only silicate to offer a PERMANENT integral waterproofing solution.
DRYCRETE™ is a unique precision-blended catalyzed colloidal silicate, which penetrates deep into concrete and forms precipitate, a gel-like compound, in the capillary voids upon contact with the always present free unused alkalis. It is successful in overcoming moisture problems and offers a permanent treatment against moisture vapor emissions and resulting damage to the concrete mass.
DRYCRETE™ provides superior performance when compared to other silicates. The high density gel-like compound creates microscopic pore networks of exact uniform-size porosity. As the gel is formed, it causes polymer cross linking and branching, encouraging polymer particle and strand connection. The resulting polymer chains provide extra strength and durability to become permanent and insoluble.
DRYCRETE™ gel-like membrane does not expand further under hard freeze conditions, thereby causing freeze-thaw cycle damage, as does gel compounds of similar products. Other silicate products usually form shallower and weaker linked short chain gel polymer compounds. Although they hold up for an appreciable length of time, they are less effective overall, and will need to be re-applied periodically.
