A Unique System for Permanent Concrete Waterproofing and Repair
New Construction and Existing Construction
Source One Environmental is the exclusive distributor of Kryton concrete waterproofing in the UK and Ireland.
Kryton’s unique approach to concrete waterproofing was developed over 40 years ago, with the development of Krystol technology. Core products within the Kryton range feature this unique, patented Krystol technology which creates the permanent waterproofing properties of the structure in which it has been incorporated.
When added or applied to concrete, Krystol chemicals create a reaction that causes long, narrow crystals to form, filling the pores, capillaries and hairline cracks of the concrete mass. As long as moisture remains present, crystals continue to grow throughout the concrete.
Once the concrete has cured, the crystalline chemicals sit dormant until water causes the chemical reaction to begin again. The ability to reactivate in the presence of water gives Krystol-treated concrete the ability to “self-seal”.
When cracks form due to curing shrinkage, settling, seismic activity, etc., water entering through them causes new crystals to form and grow, blocking and filling the cracks, which can help to dramatically reduce the long-term maintenance and repair costs of a concrete structure. As the original crystalline waterproofing admixture, Kryton has undergone more testing and received more approvals than any other.
Kryton has developed a range of waterproofing products for new build and repair of concrete structures, most of which include Krystol technology. Together, the products make up a powerful system to permanently protect structures from water damage.
