block foundations are typically more porous than poured concrete
foundation walls and consequently pose a greater challenge to remediate
The remarkable Penetron system works on a
simple, yet highly efficient principle. Osmosis draws Penetron deep into the capillaries and shrinkage
cracks of concrete. There chemicals combine and form crystals which
completely block the capillaries. These crystals have been found 3 feet
in from the surface where Penetron was applied.
PENETRON provides permanent waterproofing protection for all forms of
concrete. Since it can be applied from either the positive side
(outside surface typically exposed to water), or the negative side
(inside, interior concrete wall surface), it provides a full range of
waterproofing including applications where it is necessary to ensure that
water will not leak out of concrete containment structures. It is
also suitable to be used where there is great potential risk of chemical
damage to concrete.
