Protect concrete floors from automotive fluids and oils with EM Coating
Automotive garages and car dealership floors are exposed to a wide variety of automotive fluids including gasoline, motor oil, antifreeze, and more. Bone Dry EM Coating has a high chemical resistance to protect concrete and stucco substrates from these fluids and the stains they cause.
Applying Bone Dry EM Coating produces a fresh, new look to even older structures by providing a smooth semi-gloss sheen. EM Coating can be applied as a chemical-resistant waterproofing coating to both horizontal and vertical surfaces and protects against fading caused by UV rays.
Brick and cinderblock structures will also benefit from EM Coating's stain blocking technology, locking in calcium carbonate, silicate and salt to prevent efflorescence. Waterproofing the surface also prevents mold growth caused by water seeping into walls and floors. EM Coating can prevent discoloration caused by:
- Manganese Stains – A brown discoloration originating in the mortar between bricks. Manganese oxide is used to color brown, tan, gray, or black brick; as it dissolves it can work its way to the surface of brick.
- Vanadium Stains – Often appears as a green or yellow stain on brick surfaces, usually on white, red or buff-colored brick.
- Efflorescence - A white or gray crystalline salt deposit that forms on the surface of unsealed brick and cinderblock.
- Exterior Stains – Improperly sealed surfaces suffer from mold and algae problems that discolor the surface. Nearby materials that oxidize and rust can also stain exterior surfaces.
Penetrating Sealers for Concrete Floors
For new and existing concrete floors topped with wood, tile or carpet, penetrating sealers like Bone Dry Pro seep into and bond with the pores of concrete surfaces. Improperly installed or maintained vapor barriers can result in moisture absorption in concrete slabs, leading to:
- Mold & mildew growth
- Failure of urethane, latex, acrylic, and water-based adhesives
Bone Dry sealers can inhibit mold and mildew growth while permanently waterproofing the surface. Newly poured concrete treated with Bone Dry Original, Bone Dry Plus or Bone Dry Pro will cure faster, shortening downtime on new projects.
