The lifespan of concrete structures is vital now more than ever.
Furthermore, when we talk about concrete deterioration, more often than not, we are referring to the infiltration of water and water-borne chemicals. Thus, ensuring an absolute watertight structure using products that will last the life of the structure is key in sustainable and durable building.
Kryton, always at the forefront of innovation when it comes to waterproofing concrete, has developed the Krytonite Swelling Waterstop. Krytonite is specially designed for sealing joints in concrete construction. The synthetic rubber made product will swell up to 1000% of its original volume when it comes in contact with water to seal the joint – an unmatched quality on the market today.
Furthermore, when Krytonite is used in conjunction with Krystol Internal Membrane (KIM) and our Krystol Waterstop Treatment, the ultimate waterproofing measure has been created. Krytonite and Krystol Waterstop will begin working immediately, ensuring no voids are created in the concrete and the ingress of moisture is blocked. This system is a one-stop shop that will ensure your concrete waterproofing needs are met for the life of your structure.
Krytonite is also extremely durable and will not deteriorate or lose performance, even when subjected to repeated wetting and drying cycles. Other benefits of Krytonite are:
- Resistant to hydrostatic pressure and will last the life of the concrete;
- Saves you time and money on your waterproofing project;
- Easy to install using common adhesive, nails, or both; and
- Has superior chemical resistance.
The new Krytonite Swelling Waterstop is available now, contact a distributor in your area for more information on how it can be used on your next project.
