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.
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.
- Eliminates moisture issues
- Eliminates costly and time-consuming moisture mitigation systems or extended drying time, thereby offering schedule savings
- Eliminates moisture related environmental hazards
- Superior performance as compared to conventional concrete:
- High-early strength
- Superior compressive strength
- Improved drying shrinkage properties
- Very low permeability
- Significantly reduced curling
- Your insurance policy
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.

Why Mission-Critical Projects and ARIDUS Rapid Drying Concrete Go Hand in Hand
Building materials for mission-critical facilities like data centers, power generation plants, and hospitals have direct impacts on facility operations. Considering the consistent impact of foot traffic, vehicle traffic, and machine vibration, concrete slabs must be reliable enough to not only avoid becoming a liability, but also maintain long-term strength. For facilities that can’t afford disruptions to operations, setting the foundation with rapid-drying concrete can lower the need for maintenance and keep facilities operating optimally. By achieving target relative humidity levels quickly, rapid-drying concrete helps mission critical facilities compete aggressive timelines, but also avoid several of the liabilities that come from traditional concrete solutions.Read More
Why Calcium Chloride Moisture Tests Don’t Tell the Full Story
When placing concrete, especially concrete slab foundations, it’s obviously important to have moisture-testing procedures in place. By getting a constant read on the moisture levels in the concrete slab, contractors can determine the best time to install flooring.
Not testing for moisture properly could lead to a premature installation of flooring, resulting in devastating damages like curling and cupping down the road.
Typically, a drying schedule is allotted to give the concrete enough time to cure and dry to target moisture levels (80 percent relative humidity).Read More
