Usage Summary
Preparation

Proper surface preparation is required

  • New or Unpainted Surfaces: New concrete must cure for a minimum of 30 days. Test for loose, flaking concrete by pressing a piece of masking or cellophane tape at various places, then pull it off with an abrupt action. If the tape does not pull the concrete from the surface, it can be painted. If the existing concrete is removed, the loose concrete should be removed down to a sound substrate.
  • For below grade application: All holes or cracks must be properly patched with a fast setting hydraulic cement.
  • For above grade application: Remove mildew stains with a mildew stain removing product. All surfaces must be clean and free of dirt, dust, efflorescence and oil. Follow all label instructions.
  • Previously Painted Surfaces: BEHR DryPlus No. 875 provides best results when applied to bare or untreated surfaces. PREVIOUSLY PAINTED SURFACES IN GOOD, REPAINTABLE CONDITION MAY BE PAINTED WITH BEHR PREMIUM NO. 875, HOWEVER, BEHR WILL NOT GUARANTEE THE RESULTS. Test for loose, flaking paint by pressing a piece of masking or cellophane tape at various places, then pull it off with an abrupt action. If the tape does not pull the paint from the surface, it can be painted. If the existing paint is removed, the loose paint should be removed down to a sound substrate by wire brushing or sanding. For Interior or Exterior application; remove deteriorated coating prior to application. Follow all preparation instructions under “New or Unpainted Surfaces” above.
Application
  • Stir well before use.
  • Do not thin product.
  • Use with adequate ventilation.
  • Use product when air and surface temperature are 50-90˚F (10-32˚C). Apply to dry or slightly damp masonry walls. Wipe off any visible moisture with a dry cloth before painting.
  • Apply using a high quality 1/2"-3/4" nap roller, 4" nylon/polyester brush or an airless sprayer capable of delivering 0.5 GPM or greater using a .023"-.025" spray tip.
  • Two coats minimum are required: First Coat: Using a brush or roller, work the waterproofer onto the surface until any all pores or voids are covered. Second Coat: Using a brush or roller, cover the entire surface. Properly fill any voids left after the first coat. Additional spot application may be needed depending on the porosity of the surface.
  • Important: If leaking is still present after two coats, it indicates that voids or pinholes are still open. Re-apply product to these areas. DO NOT thin product or apply at a greater spread rate.
Dry Time
  • Low temperatures or high humidity conditions will affect drying time.
  • Full cure should be reached in 7-14 days.
Disposal
  • Properly dispose of all soiled rags.
  • Protect unused product from freezing.
  • For disposal of empty containers and unused product contact your household refuse collection service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only great spray coat- DryPlus I’m very familiar with basement sealing products. DryPlus passes Pressure and mold resistance,unlike other products. It is the only product in the market that can easily be used with a paint sprayer without clogging. DryPlus penetrated pores in the wall and locks the coating into them and being flexible unlike other coatings that are mostly fillers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waterproof Basement Walls I have had nothing but GOOD luck using Behr products. Used the waterproofer on our basement walls and floor, with amazing results. The basement is so much brighter and fresher smelling. It has lasted 6 years and no leaks. I highly recommend Behr.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent performance and easy application! We purchased an older home with a leaky basement, and have tried a few different products to seal the walls. One waterproofing paint was so thick and sticky it was like painting with thick maple syrup. The second one didn't cover well and the smell was awful. I started to think we were going to have to hire a contractor if we were ever going to have a dry basement. After some serious frustration and quite a bit of money spent, we tried the Behr waterproofer. What a difference! The paint went on smoothly without any drag at all, even over some rough areas where the wall had been textured with sand. The coverage was great. It has been on the walls for a couple of months now and no water or moisture yet! Very pleased!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paint exceeded my expections!!! My daughter purchased her first home, and the garage walls showed some mold and effervescent. We cleaned the walls, read all the reviews on several companies. I had previously used another product to prevent water from entering my home. So I was surprised at the lack of odor. We picked almond cream. It took two coats, the color was great. The coverage was great. One tip I would say is to work the roller lightly, until the paint is applied, use more pressure when the roller is emptied, working the paint into the holes. Use a full roller to go over areas not completed covered. applied with a full roller. The garage is 14 feet high, I used an extension on the roller, and never climb a ladder. Covered wall great. It has only been up for day, but it looks wonderful. I would not hesitate to recommend this product. Second coat was done in half the time of the first coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Changed my dark moist basement into a usable space I love this product. I was hoping to clean up the basement and make it less damp but I was suprised to find that it made it dry. Although the prep time was very long and tedious, it was well worth it. My preping properly which included regrouting lots of the mortar between the bricks, it was well worth it to do it right. I now have a very usable dry basement that I don't fear to go into!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks Great The application instructions were very good and I tried both a roller & a 4" brush to apply to my block basement walls. I found that I got better coverage filling the nooks and crannies of the porous block surface with the brush. The first coat took a little longer and required more effort than the 2nd coat. As the directions state, a 2nd coat was necessary for full coverage and good color. It also took much less effort and gave more coverage. I had some minor cracks that were filled in and visibly disappeared after the application. The odor was hardly noticeable and was completely gone the next day. I started in one corner and am working my way around the basement. The completed sections are brighter, easier to keep clean and are a major improvement in the appearance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but very thick I have used this in several areas. It worked great in an underground basement, although it took 6 coats to finally stop the water penetration. I have also used it to paint my stucco home. The material went on quite easily and with 2 coats, it looks like new several years out. The biggest challenge is that it is really thick, think frosting and you get the idea, particularly on a cold morning. Don't try to stir it to mix in the pigment, you will be all day. Every day I was planning to paint, I took it to my local home depot to shake it. Never had a problem that way. It is really hard to roll on and I couldn't imagine spraying it, even though the directions say you can. I used a brush, which took a long time, but it seems very durable so it was effort well spent. I have also used this on wood and it works but it takes several coats, since wood is porous. But once I was done, it was really water proof and looked great. Finally, the custom color selection is pretty extensive, but don't expect every possibility. Deep colors are just not possible and the finish is totally matte, but very smooth to the touch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Behr Masonry is as strong as a Grizzly! My basement is cold in New England winters and damp in the summer. After applying Behr masonry on the cement walls, the moisture problems have been eliminated and the white finish has weathered seasonal changes perfectly. I would highly recommend this product to any interior cement project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Easy Coverage, Minimal Smell My husband and I purchased this to basement waterproofer to coat the walls in our home built in 1978. Unlike previous experiences in other homes using Drylock, this Behr had a very minimal smell making it much easier to do this project on our own. When purchasing this, the gentlemen at Home Depot noted that the price difference between this and Drylock was minimal, but that the Behr quality was much superior. He noted that Drylock hasn't updated their formula in the last 30 years and that Behr has much better technology. I couldn't agree more. We were really impressed with the ability to tint the color of the Behr paint and ended up going with a nice shade of light grey. The application of the paint was easy and the coverage was great. The can noted that you could apply it to slightly moist surfaces which was a relief because we did have a small area were the cinderblock was already moist. We applied two coats and wow, what an improvement over the bland cinderblock! I would definitely recommend to anyone that has a moist basement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Basement & Masonry Waterproofing Paint Put this product on my basement walls, some of which were actively damp. Within two hours the walls were completely dry and have remained so for 4 months now. Just might be something to this "nano-partical" technology. Time will tell.
