Moisture Mitigation Products for Concrete Flooring
Deep Penetrating Concrete Sealers Prevent Floor Covering Failures on New and Existing Concrete
When your Calcium Chloride (CaCl) test comes back higher than acceptable or the concrete’s relative humidity level is greater than 80%, you’ve got a serious problem. The critical path of a construction schedule does not give you time to wait another month for the concrete to continue curing and drying.
Bone Dry has been the solution to CaCl and RH troubles in new and existing concrete.
A water-based, penetrating concrete sealer, Bone Dry Pro formula penetrates through the concrete surface, fills the capillaries in the slab, and produces a barrier within the concrete. The result is a permanent waterproof barrier protecting the floor coverings from moisture damage. Properly applied, Bone Dry prevents moisture-based failures with its 20 year warranty.

Why Concrete Sealers Are Needed
Whether you're working on a home project or a large-scale construction operation, concrete is the foundation of many projects. Concrete is a porous material that retains moisture after it gets wet. When water gets into concrete it can cause cracking as it freezes and thaws. Concrete sealers fill in these pores to prevent the concrete from cracking and releasing moisture already inside the concrete. Many people forget that concrete can release moisture and cause damage to things on its' surface, like cardboard boxes.
Sealed concrete is easier to clean and helps keep your surface looking great by preventing stains from chemicals and tough to clean spills like oil and grease. Some sealers, like our EM Coating, provide a sleek semi-gloss finish to the surface.

Protect Vinyl Floor Coverings against Failure with Bone Dry
Most flooring manufacturers will not warranty an installation if the RH level is above 80%. Solvent-free adhesive bases such as water, latex and acrylic for vinyl floors will fail if moisture permeates up through the slab. Excessive moisture infiltration can cause the adhesive to re-emulsify and fail.
There are two main reasons why moisture becomes a problem. Either the slab is new and was not allowed enough time to cure and/or dry properly before the adhesive was applied or it can be an existing slab without a membrane beneath it. Regardless of which situation you face, the answer is the same: Bone Dry Pro.
