Antimicrobial Protection and Permanent Moisture Mitigation for New or Existing Concrete Slabs
Whether it’s a tight construction deadline or an existing concrete floor without a vapor barrier underneath, moisture mitigation is a serious concern. Failure to address moisture infiltration leads to many problems:
- Mold and mildew will grow under mats or non-air permeable floor coverings
- Metal objects left on the floor will rust
- Cardboard boxes will soak up water and become soggy
- Urethane, latex, acrylic and water-based adhesives will emulsify and fail
You may notice your carpet starting to roll, tiles popping off the floor or vinyl flooring curling at the seams. These are all classic symptoms of moisture vapor transmission through the concrete breaking down the adhesive. You may even notice your concrete slab is sweating in even low-humidity environments.
Bone Dry Pro Prevents Mold and Mildew Growth with Antimicrobial Technology
Moisture problems in new or existing concrete must be addressed before flooring is applied or repaired. Fortunately for contractors, Bone Dry Pro is a quick, easy-to-apply moisture mitigation product designed for use under floor coverings on both new and existing slabs. Our penetrating concrete sealer is permanent and includes antimicrobial technology. Antimicrobial technology is built into the sealer to prevent the growth of mold, mildew and odor-causing bacteria in concrete pores throughout the life of the product, and will not wash off or wear away.
Bone Dry Pro Used for Roofing System Protection
Bone Dry's permanent, VOC free sealer is a cost-effective solution to protecting finished surfaces and roofing systems from concrete moisture-related issues.
Bone Dry Pro protects roofing systems from numerous potential concrete moisture-related problems. These concrete moisture issues can include saturating insulation and cover boards, causing adhered systems to delaminate, or increasing the risk of corrosion to metal components. Applying Bone Dry Pro eliminates these concerns by creating a barrier beneath the surface of the concrete.

Apply Bone Dry Pro Sealer Immediately After the Pour
Bone Dry penetrating sealers will create a waterproof barrier from within concrete floors, and now Bone Dry Pro sealer can be applied at least an hour after fresh concrete is poured. Most sealers can only be applied after a concrete floor is fully cured, which usually takes weeks. Bone Dry Pro’s special formula is made to be the complete solution for all types of concrete floors. The speed with which Bone Dry Pro can be applied to your freshly-poured concrete floors can save days on the job!
Applying Bone Dry Pro sealer immediately after the pour is only one of the many benefits of using our product. Some other benefits include:
- Fewer contractors – with Bone Dry’s easy-to-apply spray application, Bone Dry Pro won’t need a whole team of contractors to apply the penetrating sealer.

Use Bone Dry Pro for Your California ADUs
In certain states, including California, concrete sealers are required by law to turn empty spaces into ADUs. According to the Los Angeles County Building and Safety Guidelines, the concrete floor needs to be provided with a vapor retarder as required in Section R506.2.3. Contact your local permitting office to make sure Bone Dry Complies with your area’s regulations.
Fast Installation and Quick Dry Time Yield Permanent Waterproofing against Moisture Infiltration
A water-based, penetrating concrete sealer, Bone Dry Pro 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 25-year warranty.
Unlike epoxies and other moisture mitigation products, Bone Dry does not normally require surface preparation. You only need to grind or shot blast the surface of the slab if there is an adhesive or sealing product on it. If the concrete has been hard troweled, you must etch it with our Etch-A-Crete to allow Bone Dry Pro to penetrate the concrete thoroughly.
Once the concrete is ready, pour the Bone Dry Pro into a sprayer and apply it to the concrete. Pay attention to how quickly the concrete absorbs the Bone Dry Pro. If the amount you spray on soaks in within 15 minutes, you should reapply.
As it works, Bone Dry Pro may force impurities, lime and alkali to the surface of the concrete. You should remove this either by mopping or, for encrusted deposits, clearing away with a wire brush.
After the Bone Dry Pro has dried, your concrete slab will be protected with a new, permanent waterproof barrier below the surface of the slab. The speed with which Bone Dry Pro can be applied and concrete ready for installation of your choice of floor covering can save days on the job.

Bone Dry Pro: The Best Concrete Sealing Product
Widely touted for its moisture mitigation and antimicrobial properties, Bone Dry Pro with antimicrobial technology offers many more benefits. It is the ultimate product for hardening, dust-proofing and preserving new or old concrete.
Specifically, Bone Dry Pro performs the following functions:
- Sealing: Bone Dry Pro seals concrete and other cement-based materials into a mass that is essentially solid, rather than porous. Its penetrating quality provides deep sealing effective for the life of the concrete.
- Bonding: Bone Dry Pro eliminates dusting and flaking and prepares the treated surface for paints, caulking compounds, adhesives and floor coverings. It also increases the bond and life of these materials. It is compatible with any type of covering.
- Densifying: Bone Dry Pro initially hardens concrete at a rapid rate. Concrete will continue to harden but slower.
- Waterproofing: Bone Dry Pro becomes an integral permanent part of the concrete by reacting with the free lime and alkali found in all concrete, completely waterproofing and strengthening the structure of the concrete.
- Curing: Bone Dry Pro is extremely effective in all temperate climates.
Bone Dry Pro Is Non-Toxic and Odorless. Contractors Should Still Follow These Precautions
If Bone Dry Pro becomes frozen in the container, thaw and agitate before use.
Do not expose aluminum, glass or eyeglasses to our sealers as they could possibly etch the surface. If any of the sealant contacts these materials, wash with water immediately.
Do not apply to asphalt. Bone Dry Pro is only designed for use on cementitious materials and can break down the petroleum base of asphalt.
Leather shoes and gloves will stiffen. Some glazed tile will be dulled.
Bone Dry Pro is slightly corrosive to human tissue. Handle it as a caustic solution. Protect skin and eyes and avoid prolonged breathing of vapors or mist. For the best protection, wear chemical goggles or a face shield and rubber or plastic gloves. Consult the Bone Dry Penetrating Concrete Sealer Material Safety Data Sheet for other safety instructions.
IF SWALLOWED: Do not induce vomiting. Drink lots of water or milk, then drink diluted vinegar, lemon juice or orange juice. Get medical attention immediately.
IN CASE OF EYE CONTACT: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention immediately.
IN CASE OF SKIN CONTACT: Thoroughly rinse off immediately with fresh water. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
