HOW IS DRYCRETE DIFFERENT?

How is DRYCRETE different from other colloidal silica or silicate compounds?

DRYCRETE Moisture Stop is a proprietary, catalyzed colloidal silicate –and not colloidal silica.

Although similar in chemical composition, DRYCRETE Moisture Stop contains a proprietary catalyst which changes its physical properties, so that is remains suspended in colloidal form, into an aqueous base. It does not compare to colloidal silica, as the effects of the catalyst changes the chemical structure and physical properties of DRYCRETE Moisture Stop in liquid form. The molecular level demonstrates spherical cells of minute proportion, each consisting of a conglomerate of spine-like smaller cells, clumped together to form a single cell.

As the product reacts with free alkali, it further breaks down to the smallest of the cells which form the nucleus, and create a 100% solids Calcium Silicate Hydrate (CSH) gel which then exudes all of the properties of a solidified silica.
