Krystol Mortar Admixture (KMA) is a hydrophilic crystalline admixture used to provide long-term protection of masonry mortars and concrete masonry units against water and waterborne contaminants by reducing permeability and absorption of the mortar.
KMA simplifies mortar installation by removing the need for surface applied sealers and can be easily incorporated into the existing mortar mix and application processes. KMA provides superior waterproofing performance that lowers building maintenance and repair costs.
When added to cementitious mortars or concrete masonry units, the Kryton Krystol technology found inside KMA chemically reacts with water and un-hydrated cement particles to form insoluble needle-shaped crystals that fill capillary pores and micro-cracks in the concrete and block the pathways for water and waterborne contaminants.
Any moisture introduced over the lifespan of the concrete will initiate crystallization, ensuring permanent waterproofing protection.
Use KMA to provide permanent protection for:
