Since 2007, many comprehensive reports have come out using new research to provide more accurate insight into how our planet naturally evolves.
Using Kryton’s Integral Concrete Waterproofing products, such as Krystol Internal Membrane (KIM) (Crystalline Admixture), or Krystol T1 & T2 (Crystalline Surface Applied System), will protect your below grade or above grade concrete structure from water penetration permanently. KIM is also only admixture that demonstrates the performance of a hydrophilic crystalline. KIM provides the highest level of water resistance, self-sealing and field-proven longevity, which proves its effectiveness as a Permeability Reducing Admixture for Hydrostatic Conditions (PRAH).
