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

- 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.

Mitigating Risk in Fast Track Construction for Owners and GCs
The benefits of fast track construction are many and well-documented, especially the potential speed to revenue benefits for the owner/developer. Certain delivery methods that facilitate fast track construction, such as the increasingly common “design-build” method, call for untraditional ways of operating. And while the potential cost and time savings of fast track construction are real, there are some inherent risks. Owners and general contractors (GCs) must be aware of these risks in order to see through a smooth fast track construction project to its completion.Read More
Why is Water — A Necessary Component of Concrete — So Dangerous?
Water is an absolutely necessary component for the formation of concrete. When mixed with cement, a chemical reaction known as hydration creates bonds between water molecules and cementitious materials to form hydrates. This natural reaction gives concrete the strength and durability that has made the building material the foundation of construction for millennia. Moisture in excess within concrete, however, can lead to a myriad of issues and the erosion of flooring materials. But why is something so essential to concrete’s formation the cause of so much trouble?
