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 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 their warranty for 20 years.
Concrete Moisture Mitigation System: Everything Delivered in One Convenient Package
With tight construction deadlines, architects and contractors don’t have time to waste gathering all the products they need to solve a moisture problem. Bone Dry offers the complete Bone Dry Pro System: everything you need to solve your moisture problem, delivered in one shipment.

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.
Our water based penetrating concrete sealer with surfactants was designed specifically for use in large scale moisture mitigation operations to prevent the failure of floor coverings installed on concrete slabs. If you are facing a tight construction deadline or need to remediate an existing slab with moisture problems, you need Bone Dry Pro.
Bone Dry Pro can reduce the construction schedule by applying it to concrete during the troweling process allowing flooring to be installed much sooner than if the contractor were to wait for the concrete to dry before installation.
Stay on Schedule with Bone Dry’s Quick and Easy Installation
On any construction site or business location, every day of inactivity costs thousands of dollars. Whether you’re on a tight deadline to get the RH below 85% or find the sheet vinyl flooring in a hallway is starting to curl, you need to mitigate the problem quickly and permanently.
Bone Dry Pro is applied with an airless garden type sprayer and is non-toxic and odorless.
Using Bone Dry Pro to seal concrete can literally shave weeks off the building schedule and save thousands of dollars off the total cost. Unlike products designed to cure and seal the concrete, Bone Dry Pro will create a moisture barrier, provide a more uniform cure of the concrete, eliminate concrete dusting, strengthen and densify the concrete and will allow flooring to be installed within 24 hours of the application.
Speed Up Cure Time with Our Quick Dry Additive
Concrete dry time can be a drag on any building project timeline, adding days to a job’s duration. Bone Dry offers a concrete pouring additive designed to speed up dry time for freshly poured concrete. The addition of Quick Dry cuts curing time down to 6 hours, keeping a commercial building project moving forward.
Quick Dry can be added to Bone Dry’s standard sealer, or Bone Dry Plus for an additional cost. The product comes pre-mixed, and there is no need to change its application process. When you order Bone Dry Pro, Quick Dry is included in the mixture to minimize downtime on larger commercial projects.
Bone Dry: The Epoxy Moisture Mitigation Alternative
Two part epoxies are a common solution to moisture problems in concrete. Unfortunately for contractors, they are very expensive per square foot and take several days to apply. Bone Dry Pro, on the other hand, can be as little as 25% the cost of an epoxy. It is versatile in terms of when it can be used during the construction process. It is simple to apply, applies very quickly and, as stated above, comes with a 20 year warranty against moisture related problems.
Additionally, epoxies require grinding or shot blasting before application. Bone Dry Pro does not require surface preparation unless the slab is hard troweled or there is existing adhesive or sealer on the concrete.
Bone Dry Pro is clearly the superior choice for sealing concrete against moisture. You’ll save significantly on material costs up front and fewer hours will be invested in preparing the slab and applying the product. Also, construction can continue sooner and potentially help you receive early completion incentive bonuses.
