How Krystol® Technology Works

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.

Kryton’s innovative range of Krystol concrete waterproofing products will help you build quality, durability, and cost-effectiveness directly into the concrete.

Krystol waterproofing systems create completely watertight concrete structures that are self-sealing and able to withstand hydrostatic pressure for the life of your structure.

Krystol technology can potentially save you money in reduced labor and maintenance costs, leaving you with a durable and resilient structure for the long-term.
