The common outdoor concrete sealers sold in stores need reapplication every two years but not DryWay® Penetrating Water-Repellent Concrete Sealer. DryWay penetrates below the surface – deep into the concrete – sealing your outdoor concrete and masonry for years to come!
DryWay is the latest and most advanced type of penetrating water-repellent sealers for concrete and masonry – a penetrating water-based emulsion of siloxanes and silanes. The sealer's small molecules penetrate up to 1/2" into the substrate. The sealer reacts chemically inside the concrete, bonds, and cures as long-chain molecules. It is like filling the pores with silicone caulk!
Estimated Service Life up to 10 Years – DryWay® protects the surface of concrete driveways, pavers, garage floors, patios, pool decks, and decorative concrete against water, spills, salts, freeze-thaw, and deterioration. Treated concrete and masonry will shed water for years, reducing cracking, pitting, spalling, efflorescence, rebar corrosion, molds, and algae growth. Most surfaces will bead water but it depends on the surface profile and number of applications. (Common sealers bead nicely but soon break down and once the beading stops, water penetrates into the substrate.)
The sealer's water-repellent properties allow for easy cleaning of spills, stains, and contaminants. This helps protect concrete from "oil slick", transmission fluid, grease, organic stains (bird droppings), stains from sprinklers, rust, gum, and graffiti. DryWay lessens the bond of snow and ice, which greatly reduces snow-removal costs for commercial or institutional clients.

Coverage depends on the porosity and composition of the concrete. Older concrete with larger pores will consume more of the DryWay Water-Repellent Sealer. Blocks and more porous surfaces may require two "wet-on-wet" applications 15 minutes apart or later – preferably the next day. Some very porous substrates like split face blocks and some pavers may need three or even four applications. But the additional applications are lighter.
Feedback from Customers
"Ice melt costs us $1,000.00 per pallet (40 boxes @$25.00). We easily saved $4,000.00 this year – DryWay sealer paid for itself in the first year (not including the savings in labor)! We used a quarter of our normal amount of ice melt to treat our “bad spots” - concrete stairways and sidewalks through our campus..." – Tarrant County College, TX
"I just applied Dryway to the concrete slabs on the side of my house. I am a repeat customer having used Dryway on my driveway and front walks last month. This is easy to apply with no odor just a pleasant scent. It only took..." – Len C., CA
"DryWay prevents chewing gum from bonding to concrete and cleanup of those black, cancerous spots is a much simpler process. The gum lifts right off with very little residue left behind. Before the sealer, we could only chip away tiny fragments at a time and there was always..." – Property Mgr., TX

DryWay is a penetrating concrete and masonry sealer which does not cure on the surface or leave behind a film that could potentially peel, delaminate, or wear easily. Instead, it forms a long-lasting water-repellent barrier inside the concrete, below the surface. Provided it is applied accordingly, DryWay will not change or reduce the friction of the surface like clear, film-based sealers will. In other words, it does not make the surface of the concrete slippery.
DryWay does not alter the surface appearance but some substrates may appear a shade darker. Over-application may leave darker areas on concrete. The penetrating sealer is inherently resistant to UV-rays, heat, and oxidative degradation. The sealer will not yellow and leaves no gloss on the surface. DryWay helps reduce tannin stains and organic shadowing (leaf stains) but does not completely stop it
Simply, DryWay will keep your driveway looking beautiful and dry! After a rainfall, your driveway will dry out quickly while other driveways will still look wet and dark because of all the absorbed water.
DryWay will provide the most durable protection to your outdoor concrete against:
DryWay® is effective on a wide range of concrete and masonry substrates, horizontal or vertical.
Use DryWay around the home for the protection of concrete driveways, garage floors, pool decks, patios, sidewalks, retaining walls, walkways, mud rooms. Use commercially for the protection of parking areas, shop floor, industrial floors, building facades and exteriors, concrete roofs, marinas, bridge decks, airport pavements, cooling towers, statues.

For proper absorption of the sealer the substrate must be clean, dry, and porous. If the concrete is tight (machine-troweled), you can improve surface porosity by acid etching or grinding. Scuff surface levelers and patching compounds. Allow at least 72 hours for the concrete to dry after power washing. Vacuum all loose debris and crumbling concrete.
Conditions: After a rain, let the concrete dry for at least 24 hours. Do not apply when rain is expected within 24 hours. Air and surface temperatures should be between 45 and 90 degrees F. Do not apply to hot surfaces in direct sunlight to avoid flashing or in a strong wind.
DryWay™ Water-Repellent Sealer is a water-based sealer, non-toxic, nonflammable, with ultra- low VOC's. Its low odor allows application in occupied buildings. It does not contain chemical solvents, is non-hazardous and VOC-compliant in all states (< 50 grams/liter VOC). DryWay avoids the explosion and fire hazards of conventional alcohol- or solvent-based silanes and siloxanes.
Breathable – For maximum penetration and durability, DryWay™ has the highest siloxane/silane content in its class of sealers. Its performance far exceeds the requirements of NCHRP 244 and federal specification SSW 110 C. However, DryWay will not trap water vapor thus allowing for the substrate to breathe and dry out.
DryWay Concrete Driveway Sealer is user-friendly and environmentally safe. Water-based, low odor, non-toxic, nonflammable, and ultra-low VOC. Simply apply using a low-pressure sprayer (hand-pump "garden" sprayer or adjustable airless), paint roller (3/4" nap), or with a paint brush.
1. Shake or roll the pail prior to use.
2. Apply DryWay in a continuous, saturating film just on the verge of puddling or running down on walls.
3. For more porous surfaces, apply a second application 10 minutes apart or later.
4. DO NOT OVERAPPLY! Backroll puddles until the sealer penetrates through the surface.
