Waterproofing by Crystallization

PENETRON

A surface-applied, integral crystalline waterproofing material, PENETRON is used for waterproofing and chemical protection at above and below ground level.PENETRON is applied by brush or spray to either the positive or the negative side of the concrete and in the presence of moisture penetrates deeply into the structure. The ensuing chemical reaction fills microcracks, pores and capillaries with an insoluble crystalline formation, which prevents water and water-borne chemicals from entering, even under high hydrostatic pressure. Cracks that develop during the lifetime of the concrete are resealed by PENETRON, resulting in permanent concrete protection

PENETRON PLUS

A unique integral crystalline chemical treatment to waterproof and protect concrete, PENETRON PLUS is specially formulated for dry-shake applications on horizontal concrete surfaces or precast segments where greater impact and abrasion resistance is required.

Packaged as a dry powder compound, PENETRON PLUS consists of Portland cement, various active proprietary chemicals and a synthetic aggregate hardener (crushed and graded to particle sizes suitable for concrete floors).Once it is dry-shaken onto a fresh concrete slab and trowelled into the surface, PENETRON PLUS will penetrate rapidly into the setting concrete. With moisture from the fresh slab, crystal growth will take place deep inside the concrete body, providing a permanent seal against water penetration

PENETRON ADMIX

PENETRON ADMIX is a non-toxic, 3rd generation crystalline admixture in powder form that is added to new concrete during batching. Once inside the concrete, it reduces concrete permeability by permanently sealing microcracks, pores and capillaries and effectively protecting the concrete against water penetration and the effects of deterioration, even under high hydrostatic pressure. PENETRON ADMIX provides projects with self-healing concrete with the ability to reseal cracks that develop during the lifetime of the concrete.

PENETRON ADMIX is compatible with all commonly used workability admixtures (e.g. superplasticizers, retarders) and mix design formulations (trial mixes recommended prior to casting).

Durable Concrete Starts with PENETRON ADMIX

PENETRON ADMIX SB

PENETRON ADMIX SB is identical to our 3rd generation crystalline admixture, but packaged in convenient, pre-measured soluble bags for easy application when adding the product to the new concrete batch. As a quality guarantee, PENETRON ADMIX SB features our unique ‘green tracer’ indicator to signal that genuine PENETRON ADMIX is in the mix.

Once inside the concrete, PENETRON ADMIX SB reduces permeability by permanently sealing micro-cracks, pores and capillaries. This protects the concrete against water penetration and effects of deterioration, even under high hydrostatic pressure. It provides projects with a self-healing capability to reseal cracks that develop during the lifetime of the concrete.

PENETRON ADMIX RP

PENETRON ADMIX RP is our tried and true Penetron Admix formulation with the addition of red pigment to meet the specification requirements of certain precast underground markets. Packaged in convenient, pre-measured soluble bags for quality control and easy application, PENETRON ADMIX RP is ready to use when adding product to the new concrete batch. As a quality guarantee, PENETRON ADMIX RP features a red pigment to permanently color the concrete to ensure visibility at a distance during inspection and to signal that genuine PENETRON ADMIX RP is in the mix.

Once inside the concrete, PENETRON ADMIX RP reduces permeability by permanently sealing micro-cracks, pores and capillaries. This protects the concrete against water penetration and effects of corrosion deterioration, even under high hydrostatic pressure. It provides projects with a self-healing capability to reseal cracks that develop during the lifetime of the concrete.

PENETRON INJECT

An advanced crystalline-based two-component injection grout with integral crystalline waterproofing ability, PENETRON INJECT waterproofs concrete by filling and sealing deeply embedded voids, cracks and fissures.It is used to fill hollow spots and voids and add stability and strength to repaired areas.

The extremely fine particle size of its ingredients allows PENETRON INJECT to penetrate into micro-fine, hairline cracks, pores and capillaries in concrete and permanently seal them with an insoluble crystalline structure. It has a very low, water-like viscosity that allows the material to be injected into extremely fine cracks and displace any water present under injection pressure.

PENEPLUG

A rapid-setting, crystalline-based, cementitious compound designed to stopping active leaks even under high hydrostatic pressure.PENEPLUG is recommended as a waterproof plugging mortar or where rapid-setting is required.

PENECRETE MORTAR

Used in combination with PENETRON for filling non-moving cracks and construction joints, form-tie holes, honey-combed areas and structurally damaged concrete. PENECRETE MORTAR consists of Portland cement, very fine treated silica sand and various active, proprietary chemicals. It is applied in laminated layers to areas that have been opened and cut-back to sound concrete for repair to provide protection against water ingress.
