Kryton’s Krystol concrete waterproofing products are either added directly to the concrete mix or applied to the surface of concrete. Once added, Krystol chemically reacts with water and un-hydrated cement particles to form insoluble needle-shaped crystals. These crystals fill capillary pores and micro-cracks in the concrete to block pathways for water and waterborne contaminates.
Krystol will continue to give the concrete structure a self-sealing ability. If water is re-introduced through a rise in hydrostatic pressure or through hairline cracks, Krystol will initiate further crystallization to ensure permanent waterproof protection. Krystol works for the life of the concrete.
- Krystol Internal Membrane™ (KIM®)KIM is a unique, single component, crystalline waterproofing admixture in powdered form which is added to ready mix concrete to produce water tight concrete or Type B protection as defined in BS8102:2009.
- Krytonite™ Swelling WaterstopKrytonite™ Swelling Waterstop is a synthetic rubber waterstop that uses swelling pressure to seal concrete construction joints and stop water.
- Krystol Waterstop Treatment™Krystol Waterstop Treatment is a cementitious crystalline slurry that is applied to horizontal and vertical construction joints to provide additional waterproofing protection, and protect rebar from corrosion.
