Only to see it crumble in a few short years.
Coastal British Columbia is known for its rugged beauty, but also for its harsh environment. The winters are long, cold and constantly wet. Repeated cycles of freezing and thawing cause rapid deterioration of concrete. Sea salt, wind and waves combine to attack reinforcing steel and quickly result in corrosion, expansive cracking and early destruction of concrete structures. Any concrete structure that is in or near the ocean will face these life shortening processes and will die an early death unless steps are taken to protect them.
Experience has shown that the most effective, reliable and economical method of protecting these structures is by preventing water and waterborne chlorides from penetrating the concrete. Keep the water out and damage from corrosion, freezing and other water-caused effects can be eliminated.
No other company has more experience at keeping water out of concrete than Kryton International Inc. of Vancouver BC. Kryton has been a pioneer of crystalline waterproofing technology in BC and throughout the world for more than 40 years. Kryton is the inventor of the crystalline waterproofing admixture. Kryton’s line of integral waterproofing products “Krystol” have proven themselves in countless studies and real-world projects around the globe – proving that Krystol technology can greatly extend the life of your infrastructure investment.
Kryton will have a booth (346) at the upcoming 2015 International LNG Conference held at the Vancouver Convention Centre from October 14th – 16th. Come by and talk to one of our knowledgeable representatives to learn more about how Krystol technology can benefit your project.
