Rapid-Drying Concrete Solution: Moisture Mitigation and Speed to Market
ARIDUS® Rapid Drying Concrete is the first ready-mixed concrete solution for preventing moisture-related floor covering failures, an industry-wide problem that costs millions of dollars annually in damage, downtime, repair and replacement. For mission-critical facility construction, rapid-drying concrete is a godsend for accelerating construction projects and eliminating the need for add-on moisture mitigation products.
Impact of Excess Moisture in Concrete Slabs
- Construction Delays
- Environmental Hazards
- Cost Overruns
- Liability Issues
- Moisture Mitigation
- Damaged Reputation
Mitigating Moisture at the Source
Today’s add-on moisture mitigation options attempt to seal in the moisture, but none solve the problem within the concrete slabs, nor do they help achieve acceptable relative humidity (RH) levels. More inconveniently, these costly and late-stage treatments do not prevent moisture problems at the beginning of a construction project. Rapid-drying concrete frees project owners, workers, and managers from moisture risks right from the start.
ARIDUS® Concrete is a scientifically engineered rapid-drying concrete that consumes excess water, thereby preventing moisture problems from the very beginning by accelerating the concrete drying time.

How Concrete Can Extend (or Accelerate) Your Construction Timeline
As a contractor, you understand the importance and challenge of completing a project on time and on budget. By now you have likely had one or more of your project schedules or budgets adversely impacted by the fact there is seldom time, or favorable enough conditions, for conventional concrete to dry naturally to the levels required by floor covering manufacturers.
A Hazardous Reality — Sick Building Syndrome
Though the signs are often well-hidden, the effects of the phenomenon known as “sick building syndrome” (SBS) cannot be overstated. Defined generally as nonspecific symptoms of the occupants within a building (generally including allergies, headaches or respiratory issues such as asthma), SBS most often originates from the formation of molds, fungus, viruses and bacteria in the presence of moisture in a facility. This is one of many reasons moisture mitigation solutions are taken seriously.
