Sustainable building practices are more important now than ever before. Providing a durable and environmentally-friendly solution to concrete leaks and deterioration can directly impace the long term enviironmental and financial viability of a structure.
Most concrete crack repair methods are only temporary fixes, and contain harmful toxins. By using integral crystalline waterproofing technology, as well as decades of experience behind us, we are able to transform cracked and leaking concrete into a permanent, water-resistant barrier.
When Kryton’s Krystol concrete waterproofing products are applied to the surface of damaged concrete, the Krystol proprietary chemicals react 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 waterproofing systems create completely watertight concrete structures that are self-sealing and able to withstand hydrostatic pressure for the life of your structure.
Since this waterproofing technology becomes an integral and permanent part of the concrete itself, its' effectiveness as a waterproofing barrier is not contingent on its' ability to form and maintain a coating or membrane on the surface of the concrete. This means that, unlike surface-applied membranes, crystalline waterproofing technology can never be punctured, damaged or worn away, and will last the lifetime of the concrete.
