Welcome to Kryton’s new Concrete Waterproofing blog. Here you’ll learn about the latest issues in the concrete industry from a practical point of view. We know that every project has challenges – no matter how well planned and executed. Our 36 years of experience has taught us how to manage problems with inventive solutions that work on the jobsite.
That’s why we’re starting a dialogue with concrete producers, builders and designers from around the world. The primary goal of Concrete Waterproofing isn’t to sell anything – it’s to share information on how changes in this industry will affect everyone.
These days there’s a lot to talk about: green construction, sustainability, nanotechnology and corrosion control all present challenges and opportunities for the concrete industry. Proposed regulations that seek to label fly ash as a hazardous material present an unpredictable future for many concrete companies. The depressed housing market has affected all of us. And the world has just suffered another major earthquake where proper building and construction codes saved hundreds of thousands of lives.
Concrete Waterproofing is also a place to share what you think industry’s most pressing issues are. Feel free to post a comment, pose a question or offer your wisdom. The conversation is just beginning.
