Bone Dry Manufactures Concrete Etching and Priming Products
Are you a contractor in need of proper etching and priming products to help prepare your new concrete substrates? Call Bone Dry today to learn more about our Primer and Etch-A-Crete products. Preparation solutions remove impurities and contaminants from highly-porous concrete slabs before adding a proper sealer.
Some of the bacteria and mold Etch-A-Crete will help remove include:
- Efflorescence (white mineral deposits)
- Stains from rust, minerals, smoke residue
- Airborne pollutants
- Airborne dirt and industrial carbon
- Weathering discoloration
- Algae, fungus and mildew
- Rust and corrosion products on metals
- Cement build-up on tools and equipment
Concrete preparation products play a big role in the effectiveness of any concrete sealing solution. Hard-troweled concrete surfaces often require etching with Etch-A-Crete in order to allow the penetration of concrete sealing products. Extra porous cement-based building materials require Bone Dry Primer to provide additional bonding strength and improve the performance of penetrating concrete sealers.
Low-VOC Concrete Etching Solution by Bone Dry Products
Remove Impurities and Contaminants from Concrete Slabs
Etch-A-Crete allows penetrating concrete sealers to absorb quickly into cement-based floors. Our solution opens the surface and prepares hard-troweled surfaces for waterproofing. Etch-A-Crete provides an etched surface which enhances the bonding strength of adhesives and surface coatings.
Problems with your untreated concrete floor sweating? It could be due to humid air condensing when it comes in contact with the cool surface of the concrete. The solution to this would be Bone Dry’s Etch-a-Crete, which can open up pores in a concrete slab while allowing moisture to absorb into the concrete instead of beading up on the surface. Etch-A-Crete can also remove stains and push concrete contaminants and impurities to the surface so they can be easily mopped away.
Concrete Sealant Preparation for Highly Porous Concrete
High permeability, mineral-based construction materials require pre-treatment solutions in order to get the most out of any concrete sealer. Shotcrete, Gunite, or cement block walls can’t be effectively sealed without a primer solution to enhance the product’s bonding characteristics. Bone Dry Primer lends greater bonding strength for penetrating sealers like Bone Dry Original.
Bone Dry Primer is a colorless, non-toxic solution that creates a permanent moisture seal in pervious concrete structures. This primer lends greater bonding strength for Bone Dry’s sealing products by filling the wide gaps and helping seal porous concrete. Bone Dry’s concrete moisture mitigation system offers superior protection from the effects of dampness hiding deep within concrete slabs and subfloors.
