EULESS, Texas, April 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- U.S. Concrete, Inc. (Nasdaq:USCR) announced today that its Aridus® Rapid Drying Concrete, developed and patented by USC Technologies, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of U.S. Concrete, Inc., was recognized at the World of Concrete receiving a "2013 Most Innovative Product Award" within the Concrete Construction Materials Category for its rapid drying technology. Stego Industries, LLC, U.S. Concrete's exclusive, independent representative, was the official recipient of this prestigious award on February 22, 2013.
Aridus® Rapid Drying Concrete is a proprietary concrete mix with a fast drying time that reduces the risks associated with excess moisture in concrete slabs. Key characteristics include high early strength and minimal curl. This innovative concrete, validated by independent industry-approved testing, helps prevent moisture problems from the start of a project by reducing the concrete drying time. This enables faster and more effective floor covering installations and helps keep projects on schedule, while reducing the risk of liabilities associated with floor covering failures.
"After years of research, it is wonderful to see this recognition for Aridus® Rapid Drying Concrete. With its ability to dry in less than 45 days preventing moisture problems in concrete floors before they arise, and its high early strength, it is the perfect product for projects that have tight construction schedules," said Wally Johnson, U.S. Concrete's Vice President of Marketing and Sales.
