Turns the concrete into waterproof, free of corrosion and self-sealing.
waterproofs the concrete by crystallization of the capillary network.
Safer and more profitable than any waterproofing system
Krystaline Add is a specially formulated crystalline admixture used to waterproof concrete, reduce shrinkage cracks, and increase concrete durability. The secondary benefits include set retardation, air entrainment, water reduction, lower heat of hydration and increased compressive strength.
Krystaline Add is a true crystalline admixture that effectively lowers the water/cement ratio by approximately double to normal crystalline admixtures. Current testing demonstrates that the Krystaline Add can reduce water by up to 7%, subject to the design mix, and as can be expected the decreased water addition for equal slump concrete has shown fairly dramatic increases in compressive strengths. It will now be possible to virtually remove other admixtures such as super plasticizers, water reducers, set retarders etc., from the concrete and simply use Krystaline Add to achieve High Durability concrete.
