The Ultimate in Antimicrobial Protection and Penetrating Concrete Moisture Mitigation

Bone Dry Plus AntimicrobialExcess moisture in concrete is a top concern for contractors working on any major cement masonry project. New concrete requires a lengthy curing period to ensure it is completely dry, which can hold up the construction schedule for days. If steps toward moisture mitigation aren’t taken, adding any covering to a concrete slab becomes a liability.

Even existing concrete floors can have hidden moisture, which may damage flooring materials and coverings and lead to many problems:

  • Expansion and contraction of damp floor coverings resulting in warping, cupping, and peeling
  • Adhesives can re-emulsify, allowing flooring materials to come unglued
  • Mold and mildew may populate areas beneath non-permeable floor coverings
  • Items in contact with bare concrete may become damp

Bone Dry Plus Permanently Mitigates Concrete Moisture and Prevents Mold Growth in Slab Floors

Bone Dry Plus has all the benefits of our original concrete sealer, plus additional antimicrobial protection. Mold and microbe growth can be a serious issue where moisture is present, and is particularly troublesome for health care and food service facilities. Applying Bone Dry Plus to any new or existing concrete slab will create a chemical vapor barrier preventing moisture from surfacing, and its unique antimicrobial formula will guard against bacterial growth.

Applying Concrete Sealant is Fast and Easy with Bone Dry Plus

Most epoxy based moisture mitigation solutions require surface preparation. Water-based Bone Dry Plus, however, only requires shot blasting or surface grinding if there is an existing sealant or adhesive. Hard-troweled will need to be etched using our Etch-A-Crete product to optimize the penetration of Bone Dry Plus.

All of our Bone Dry products can be applied and spread using a common airless weed sprayer. As you apply the concrete sealer, some Bone Dry Plus may soak in quickly. If the amount you’ve sprayed soaks in within 15 minutes, a re-application is needed. Surfaces should be flushed or mopped with water 24 hours after application of Bone Dry Plus to remove foreign material and contaminants brought to the surface.

A five-gallon pail of Bone Dry Plus will cover approximately 1100ft2, depending on concrete porosity. Can be used for both indoor and outdoor surfaces.

Add Quick Dry to Bone Dry Plus for the Fastest Concrete Curing Time

The antimicrobial properties of Bone Dry Plus make it a great option for concrete substrates where mold and mildew growth are expected to be an issue. Home builders and do-it yourselfers tackling projects of these types are constantly looking for ways to improve efficiency to get the job done fast, without sacrificing product performance. The Quick Dry add-on available for Bone Dry Plus speeds up cure times, allowing flooring to be installed in as few as 6 hours after application. Quick Dry is shipped premixed with your sealing product when selected as an add-on, and requires no change to the application process.

Non-Toxic Bone Dry Plus is the Cost-Effective Alternative to Epoxy Sealants

Besides the obvious expenses of replacing moldy, warped or otherwise damaged VCT, wood, carpet, or sheet vinyl floor coverings, resulting from damp concrete masonry, Bone Dry products cost nearly 75% less than common two-part epoxies. These same epoxies can take several days to apply and always require mechanical surface preparation. Between the added costs of material and man hours, Bone Dry Plus is the best choice for concrete moisture mitigation.

Bone Dry Plus with antimicrobial power provides a unique vapor barrier for waterproofing concrete and dense cement masonry products. Bone Dry Plus penetrates deeply to become an integral part of the concrete, filling the voids and bonding the particles into a solid mass, creating a permanent seal.

Benefits of Bone Dry Plus:

  • Permanently waterproofs – penetrates deep into concrete, producing a permanent vapor barrier
  • Strengthens concrete – adds to the density of the concrete, strengthening as it penetrates
  • Prevents mold and mildew – has additional protection against organic growth

Product Description

Bone Dry provides a unique barrier for waterproofing concrete and dense cementitious masonry, plaster and patching materials products.

Whereas, most other waterproofing products develop a surface coating, Bone Dry is designed to penetrate deeply (up to 4 inches) where it becomes an integral part of the concrete. Bone Dry is a water based internal waterproofing system which contains the same inorganics present in concrete. A proprietary wetting agent composed of sixteen enzymes remarkably reduces the liquid’s surface tension, which enables the Bone Dry to penetrate deeply into the small pore diameters and hairline cracks.

Initially, the main constituents of the Bone Dry chemically react to form a semi-rigid gel within the concrete pores, fissures and interstitial spaces to prevent the passage of water and other liquids. As the chemical reaction continues, a crystalline structure develops within the concrete where the resultant chemical compound becomes an integral part of the concrete to permanently seal the concrete against the passage of water and other liquids. As the chemical reaction continues, Moisture Vapor Transmission is
significantly reduced.

Basic Uses:

Bone Dry preserves new or old concrete. Bone Dry hardens new concrete and retards dusting without altering the surface appearance, texture, or bonding
characteristics. The occlusive seal formed by Bone Dry limits deterioration of concrete and dense cementitious masonry by resisting the penetration of
acids, alkalis, oils and salts.

Bone Dry is formulated to perform against below grade hydrostatic pressure and is also excellent as an on grade moisture barrier.

Bone Dry will seal against hydrostatic pressure; however, flowing water must be stopped before application.


  • hardens concrete, minimizing surface dusting, pitting, spalling and hairline cracking
  • virtually stops moisture vapor transmission
  • inhibits water seepage and saponification
  • resists acid, alkali and salt and oil attack
  • seals against seepage below grade (i.e. from hydrostatic pressure)
  • stops capillary action
  • aids in curing new concrete uniformly, resisting spot drying and hairline shrinkage cracking – can be applied immediately after finishing
  • ejects contaminants which have penetrated concrete.
  • prepares concrete surfaces for subsequent applications of paint, stains or adhesives specifically formulated for use on concrete surfaces – a test area should be tried before proceeding with any large areas of floor coatings or floor coverings – moisture testing is often used in this determination
  • promotes greater paint durability by helping to resist peeling, cracking or crumbling – increases bonding strength of latex and poly-vinyl paints
  • Before painting over Bone Dry treated areas, the surfaces should be flushed with clear water until the surface no longer exhibits leaching of alkali or foreign matter.


Bone Dry is formulated primarily for concrete and other substrates containing calcium carbonate and lime and does not effectively seal asphalt, metal or wood, or clay products


Bone Dry is a non-toxic, (water borne) blend of inorganics which react with the natural by -products created during the formation of concrete to form an internal system of suspended solids. These suspended solids extend throughout the concrete filling the capillaries and pores thereby creating a permanent moisture barrier. Bone Dry contains no organic materials or inorganic heavy metals. Bone Dry is neither flammable or explosive and does not emit any harmful fumes.


Bone Dry Plus for normal applications Bone Dry Primer is required to ‘fortify’
concrete block or cinder block prior to applying the Bone Dry Plus

Compressive Strength:

Bone Dry significantly increases the compressive strength of concrete because the silicate constituent of the material reacts with the calcium hydroxide (present in all concrete) to form calcium silicate hydrate.


The chemical reaction between Bone Dry and the free lime and alkali within the concrete seals the small pores and hairline cracks to impede the absorption of

ASTM-96 Moisture Vapor Transmission:
Significantly reduces moisture vapor transmission.
CTL tests results showed significant reductions when compared to control samples.

Stain Resistance:
Treated concrete is noticeably more resistant to staining and is more easily cleaned than untreated concrete.

Dusting Resistance:
Concrete treated with Bone Dry is significantly more resistant to dusting as compared to untreated control samples.

Freeze Thaw Resistance:
BoneDry provides a vastly improvied resistance to freeze/thaw damage under test conditions.

Resistance to Salt Attack:
Bone Dry application to concrete imparts resistance to salt attack (5% NaCl solution) under freeze-thaw conditions.

Resistance to Chemicals:
Concrete treated with Bone Dry develops a high resistance to chemical attack. This resistance is imparted by the highly chemical resistant inorganic solids which permeate the concrete and form a protective coating around the individual cement particles.

Concrete treated with Bone Dry is highly resistant to oils, grease, petroleum and non-petroleum based hydrocarbon solvents, caustic alkalis and most of the
organic and inorganic acids.

USDA - chemically acceptable as a coating for application to structural surfaces where there is a possibility of incidental food contact in establishments operating under the Federal Meat and Poultry Products Inspection Program.

Approved by The Regulatory Enforcement and Animal Care (REAC) division of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture for use in all animal clinics and in holding and shelter facilities.

W.H.O. approval for potable water storage tanks.


Coverage area 850-900 square feet.

Preparatory Work:
No preparatory work is generally required. However, if the concrete surface is coated with heavy wax, thick grease, recently applied surface sealer, rubber or
acrylic paint or other impervious material exists, remove such materials so that the Bone Dry will be allowed to penetrate through the surface of the concrete. The surface of slick, hard troweled concrete should be opened up by acid etching or mechanical means to facilitate the proper penetration of the Bone Dry.

Method of Application:

  1. Dampen surface to be treated (do not saturate) using a fine mist water spray.
  2. Bone Dry must be applied at full strength to attain the desired results
  3. Saturate the surface thoroughly with Bone Dry at an approximate rate of 170 square feet per gallon, depending upon porosity of the concrete.
    Low pressure spray equipment, such as a hand pumped garden type sprayer works well for medium sized areas. For large areas, airless spray equipment is very efficient. Small areas can be effectively treated using a spray bottle.
    Brushes or rollers are not recommended because of the low viscosity of the Bone Dry.
    Do not allow the Bone Dry to pond or puddle, as a white residue will likely form on the surface of the concrete. Move the excess material from the low
    spots on the floor to the high spots with a squeegee, mop or broom. Any remaining material should be removed with a wet vac or mop.
    The time for additional applications can be judged by observing the time it takes for the Bone Dry to soak into the concrete. If the Bone Dry soaks in quickly, generally less than fifteen minutes after application, additional material should be applied.
    For vertical surfaces, such as basement and
    outside walls, follow standard procedures as
    described above. Multiple passes with the spray
    apparatus will be required to achieve the proper
    coverage rate.
    Indoors - Approximately 2 to 3 hours after application of the Bone Dry, water dampen the treated surface using a fine water spray mist.
    Outdoors – To prevent flash evaporation of the Bone Dry from the effects of wind or direct sun exposure, keep the surface damp for 24 hours.
    CAUTION: Do not flush with water as some of the Bone Dry still on the surface may be washed away by this action.
  5. If necessary, 24 hours after application, flush or mop the surface thoroughly with water to flush off any foreign material that may have been brought to the surface. This foreign material can create adhesion issues for floor coatings or adhesives.
    Repeated flushing may be required as the Bone Dry brings contaminants to the surface.
  6. Curing new concrete: Apply Bone Dry to the surface as soon as the concrete finishing operations have been completed and the when the surface can support foot traffic without being disfigured; or when the forms have been removed, saturating the surface thoroughly. Concrete will cure slowly, producing a hardened waterproof surface. Bone Dry is excellent in hot or windy
    weather, since it promotes uniform curing,
    increases density, resists hairline shrinkage
    cracking and stops surface dusting.


Bone Dry should not be allowed to remain on aluminum or glass, including eyeglasses.

In the event of contact, wipe off immediately with a wet cloth or sponge.

Bone Dry will stiffen leather gloves or footwear.

Bone Dry should not be applied to glazed floor or wall tile, or glazed or hard fired brick where the glaze will prevent the penetration of the material.

However, Bone Dry may be applied over these materials if the intent is to seal the grout joints. In such cases, after the Bone Dry has sufficiently soaked into the grout, remove all excess material from the surface with a wet vac, squeegee or mop. Wipe the surface with a damp cloth or sponge to remove any remaining film. This will greatly minimize the possibility of a white deposit or film from forming on the tile or brick. When in doubt, apply Bone Dry to a small test area.

Bone Dry is not recommended for use on porous brick, pavers or tile as there is not sufficient alkali (lime) in these materials for the Bone Dry to react with. In most cases, white discoloration will occur on such surfaces.

Bone Dry should not be applied to masonry structures having a mortar or grout containing a latex binder.

Bone Dry should not be applied or stored at freezing temperatures. 45 degree minimum surface temperature recommended. If freezing occurs during storage, agitate the thawed material thoroughly to assure uniform solution. During outside applications, care should be taken to protect vegetation and adjacent areas from direct spray or overspray.
