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).

Easy to Apply

On Existing Concrete
Apply DRYCRETE using a low pressure pump-up tank sprayer with a fan spray nozzle. Holding spray tip 6-8 inches from surface, apply at minimum rate of 200-250 square feet per gallon with an overlapping spray pattern of 10-20%. Begin application at the lowest elevation. For example, walls and slopes should be applied side to side, from the bottom up.
 
As a Cure Method on newly poured Concrete
Apply DRYCRETE with a low-pressure pump-up tank sprayer or by flooding and broom out. Apply to the newly placed surface as soon as is practical following its surface finishing phase. Recommended minimum coverage as a cure method is 150-200 square feet per gallon on textured surfaces or 250-300 SF per gallon on hard trowel finished concrete surfaces.

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.
