PERMANENT INTEGRAL MOISTURE BARRIER
DRYCRETE® Moisture Stop is a biochemically catalyzed colloidal silica formulation, in an aqueous base. Moisture Stop is user friendly,DRYCRETE® Moisture Stop is a biochemically catalyzed colloidal silica formulation, in an aqueous base. Moisture Stop is user friendly,non-toxic, non-flammable, and environmentally friendly with zero VOC emissions. It enhances curing, by reducing evaporation rate and greatlyreducing permeability, while increasing hydration. Moisture Stop is exclusively manufactured and engineered to permanently control moisture levels in concrete.
MOISTURE MITIGATION USE: Moisture Stop can be used as a curing compound, or on existing concrete, as a mitigating compound for excessive moisture problems. It can be applied at the time of pour, as soon as one can walk on the concrete without marring the surface, or on existing concrete of any age. Moisture Stop penetrates deep into the concrete matrix and permanently seals the concrete from within.
RECOMMENDED USE: DRYCRETE Moisture Stop is recommended as a densifier and moisture vapor blocker prior to the application of cementitious overlays, epoxy coatings, traditional flooring materials, and in concrete polishing applications. It can be used for related decorative concrete applications including flatwork, stamped and textured concrete, concrete counter tops, concrete masonry units, stucco, mortar, grout, and most any other Portland cement based surface.
- Does not impede surface bond ability.
- Compatible with all adhesives and coatings.
- Permanent moisture control – one time application.
- Meets ACI 308R-01 moisture curing standards.
- Naturally stabilizes pH of concrete between 9 & 10.
- Highly effective in protecting the concrete surface against acid & chemical erosion.
- Eliminates dusting and increases surface bond quality.
- No harmful fumes or objectionable odors.
- Allows foot traffic & trades within 2 hours of application.
COVERAGE: Once the surface porosity has been opened sufficiently, apply the DRYCRETE™ Moisture Stop at a coverage rate of 200 sq ft per gallon on broom finished floors and 300 sq ft per gallon on steel troweled floors. Use a low pressure pump up sprayer or a medium to high-pressure airless paint sprayer with a fan-style tip. On vertical surfaces, begin the application at the lowest point in elevation and work toward the highest point in an east-west manner, where north points toward the highest elevation point. On flat surfaces, once you complete the application, broom or squeegee off any excess DRYCRETE™ Moisture Stop to avoid puddling.
AVAILABLE IN: 1 Gallon (3.78 L), 5 Gallon (18.9 L) pails, 55 gallon (208 L) drums, and 265 gallon tote (1000L)
